Rondale Moore – WR

Moore basically took over Larry Fitzgerald’s role in 2021. He logged 54 receptions for 435 yards, good for 8.1 yards per catch. Moore also had a catch rate of 84.4 percent, so he proved his surehandedness in 2021. A dual-threat player, he also rushed for 76 yards on 18 attempts.

The only problem is that Moore once again missed time because of injury, something that has haunted him since his days at Purdue. A productive player when healthy, Moore’s injury issues show that he’s not durable enough to evolve into a full-time NFL starter.

Overall, he was a good pick in the second round. But still, you’d like to see your second-round pick become an annual starter for at least the next half-decade. Moore will contribute and he’ll produce if he can stay on the field. Time will ultimately tell whether he puts his injury issues behind him.
