4. D.J. Moore, Maryland
Career Statistics: 146 catches for 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns, 125 rushing yards and a score, and 10.2 yards per punt return.
Why D.J. Moore Is Here On The List: An interesting prospect, he might not quite look the type at 5-11 and 215 pounds, but blow that off. His size is an advantage when he gets the ball in his hands, able to power through at times like a running back.
No, he’s not going to be one of those go-up-and-get-it guys, but with his quickness, punt return ability, and hands, he’s fantastic at taking the quick, easy throws and doing something big.
An ideal ensemble cast receiver, he might need to be flanked by taller receivers who can stretch the field, but he’ll kill defenses on the inside by getting the ball on the move.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Is he a deep ball receiver at all? He doesn’t have a full route tree in is repertoire, but can he fit every team and every style? The measureables and drill times are going to matter for a receiver who lives on his quickness and athleticism.
Bottom Line: There’s an awful lot to like. He’s not a true No. 1 NFL target, but don’t be shocked if he puts up massive catch numbers as a midrange receiver. Not a diva, teams are going to love him – he’ll be an early second round pick partly because there won’t be any drama.
