1 - Vertical skillset & Separation quickness

What stands out about Moore’s game is how he offers multiple dimensions as a downfield option. He can be a blowby threat along the boundary, threaten defensive backs with double moves and can adjust to different flight paths when tracking slot fades. 

As a mover, Moore accelerates abruptly out of the breakpoint of the slant & go, which makes this even more difficult to defend.

Slot receivers in today's game are asked to stretch the field and win vertically against nickel defenders. 

Moore checks those boxes and consistently shows that he is capable of making difficult in-flight adjustments.

Moore is a dynamic accelerator who is a tough turn & run assignment for nickel defenders. 

He is every bit of a sub 4.4 guy, and will be a threat to the third level from the slot.

2 -Creating yards post catch

Dramatic, sudden, and skilled is how I would describe Moore as a mover

He'll be a factor in the screen and sweep game because of this. 

Intruiging in-space player.

He was put in motion quite a bit at Ole Miss. This should be a primary role of Moore's in Mike LaFleur's new look Jets offense. 

Moore was also given carries out of the backfield so we could be looking at a high opportunity role as early as mid-season.

3 - RedZone role

Again, we see the suddeness from Moore. 

As a RedZone option we can project Moore to have a role similar to that of Tyler Lockett with how he can threaten defenses with variation inside the 20.
