POSITIVES

—Used more as a blocker than most receivers in Missouri's spread-screen pass offense.

—Length and speed will get him plenty of looks by scouts.

—Snags the ball out of the air with good catch radius and hands away from his body.

—Good lateral quickness and after-the-catch ability for a tall (6'3") receiver.

—Plenty of potential with untapped route-running ability.

     

NEGATIVES

—Became frustrated by physical corners at the Senior Bowl.

—Limited route-runner due to college offense.

—Tested slower than his film.

—Struggled to get into routes and let corners force him to the edge.

—Questionable focus and drive for the NFL.

     

OVERALL

A raw talent coming out of a spread scheme, J'Mon Moore wasn't asked to run a variety of routes at Mizzou but could quickly develop if given time in the NFL. Scouts question his focus and drive, which led to drops and lapses in play. Good athlete with a lot of potential as an NFL receiver.

         

GRADE: 5.95 (Round 4)

PRO PLAYER COMPARISON: Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins
