Cardinals GM Steve Keim might have finally hit on a receiver
The Arizona Cardinals have drafted four wide receivers in the last three seasons, only two of which remain with the team.
The second-round pick from 2019, Andy Isabella, has left a lot to be desired in his play and production. The 2021 second-round pick Rondale Moore might be just what the team needs.
Moore was a crucial part of the Cardinals’ victory on Sunday, including a highlight-reel 77-yard touchdown reception late in the first half. Another 18-yard reception with ten seconds remaining in the half put the Cards in position for a franchise-record 62-yard field goal from Matt Prater that gave them the lead going into the break.
Kyler Murray rewarded Moore’s efforts with eight targets, of which he caught seven that went for 114 yards and a touchdown.
Moore is currently the leading rookie receiver in the NFL, and if he continues at his current pace, he figures to be a prominent playmaker in what looks to be a potent Cardinals offense.
