Scouting Report: DJ Moore, WR, Maryland

Philadelphia, PA | 5096 | 215 | 4.49E | 2019

Elusive in the open field, able to pick up yards after the catch and is not afraid to go over the middle. He has flourished as a blocker. Has been used in an array of different ways; on reverses, sweeps and screens, while possessing the ability to also beat opponents deep. He is dangerous in space and possesses a strong body frame, despite his lack of length. He added 15 pounds to his frame during the 2016 offseason and didn’t sacrifice his speed. He has improved his route running immensely but there’s still room for improvement to sharpen his footwork. He has endured inconsistent quarterback play throughout his collegiate career (Has played with seven different starters). Height concerns will be the main flaw that stands out to scouts. A mismatch underneath, in addition to being a weapon on end arounds and reverses he also returns kicks—expect his stock to continue to rise. Projects as an inside/slot wide out who warrants a top 100 overall draft grade.
