Moore’s dual-threat ability

Few realize that Rondale Moore is not just a surehanded receiver whose speed and route-running produced 178 receptions, 14 touchdowns, and 1,915 yards in 20 career college games. Moore can also run the football, and he highlighted his dual-threat ability early in his college career.

Moore had 21 rushing attempts for 213 yards in 2018, good for 10.1 yards per carry. He can once again highlight that ability with the Cardinals. We already touched on how dangerous Kyler Murray, James Conner, and Chase Edmonds can be. And if the Cardinals get Chris Streveler more involved in a Taysom Hill-type of role, Moore can become yet another chess piece for Arizona.

He proved in college that he’s willing to run the ball. And with non-traditional formations that stack the backfield, only for Moore to come in on an end-around or another trick play will get him that much closer to the Pro Bowl.

We mainly look at Moore as a faster version of former wideout Wes Welker, considering the latter’s height, overall size, and route-running ability. But he displays more raw talent than Welker. One of which involves his ability to make plays out of the backfield.
