Strengths

DJ is an explosive receiver. Sets up blocks well and excels in the screen game. Can chew up cushions that DBs give him. He is a skilled athlete, who is uses quickness to win in routes. DJ was heavily involved in the Maryland offense accounting for almost 40% of the targets. He also was used sparingly in the run game, but showed an ability to be that gadget player. Also has experience in the return game.


Weaknesses

Moore lacks ideal size to play on the outside. For his speed, doesn’t separate as much as you would think. That causes him to have to compete for a lot of 50/50 balls. Also shows more glide than speed into and out of breaks. Runs a limited route tree, and does have a lot of downfield production.


Big Picture

Moore is an electric player with the ball in his hands. He can find tiny cracks in the screen game, and explode into the second level with his plus speed. He is someone who can continue to grow to expand and refine his route tree. Moore is the ideal player to come in as a slot receiver and make an early impact. He will be used as a returner and can impact the game that way as well. While he isn’t prototypical size, the way he was used in college will translate well. While he could sneak into the back half of Round 1, a more realistic place would be Round 2. Either way, his wait to be selected wont be a long one.
