2018 NFL Draft

Packers Get Their Receiver With J’Mon Moore

Although none of us think a rookie receiver will contribute in year one with the Green Bay Packers, Brian Gutekunst did indeed address the position in the draft. The Packers took Missouri’s J’mon Moore at No. 133 overall.

Moore was productive in college, putting up 65 catches for 1,082 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017. Moore has size at 6’3″ and 207. He isn’t the fastest guy with a 4.6 40 time. Although that’s fast enough.

Moore’s biggest issue has been drops.

He was actually benched during his college career for dropping too many passes.

This is obviously a project pick at this point. However, if the Packers can develop Moore, he has a chance to be a future starter.

He’ll join a mix that includes Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and no clear third starter.

The Packers could still sign a free agent to address that concern, but it’s also believed tight end Jimmy Graham could fill the second outside role.

    Here we go, project picks. Aren’t they already on the roster?

    He had some kind of problem running his 40 at the combine. He ran 4.48 at his pro day.
