Once a Day 2 prospect, there is a good chance that Maryland’s D.J. Moore sinks comfortably inside the first round of the NFL Draft after his combine performance.
On Moore’s tape, his quickness is easily noticeable. But his athletic gifts were quantified at the combine, where he showcased his physical talent to NFL scouts across the board.
Moore has good speed for the wide receiver position, but he’s not just a role player. Moore has immaculate body control when pursuing 50-50 balls, and his sure hands allow him to win tense battles between he and the opposing cornerback.
Moore is a sneaky good fit for the Cowboys, who may part ways with Dez Bryant soon, reaffirming the need for a new standout receiver to serve as a reliable target for Dak Prescott.
Moore has been slept on for much of the NFL Draft process, but now, that appears to be changing. The former Maryland Terrapin has all the traits that consummate a successful NFL wide receiver, and if the Dallas Cowboys get Moore, then the inevitable departure of Dez Bryant, whether it comes this year or later, will be lesser in impact than it could have been.
