Would Rondale Moore even be available for the Philadelphia Eagles in Round 3?

Okay, Rondale Moore is a baller. We know that. Rondale Moore figures to be a jewel in the NFL. We can probably agree on that. Some of you are probably even wondering why people aren’t mentioning the fact that he’s five-foot-seven like they would be if they were talking about some other guys if they came up in the conversation.

The answer to that can be found in a 42.7-inch vertical jump and 4.33-second 40-yard dash at Purdue’s Pro Day. The question then goes back to what we just asked. Is he a Round 2 or a Round 3 guy? That’s where some people get stuck.

We’ll tentatively place him in Round 3, but if he comes off of draft boards in Round 2, no one should be surprised. The debate is simply this. Would you grade him higher than Rashod Bateman, Tutu Atwell, or Terrace Marshall?

Moore has had his injury concerns, and he’s only appeared in seven games over the last two seasons. Still, he showed that he can stay healthy after opting back in to play in a shortened Big Ten campaign. The result was 35 receptions in three games, giving him 178 receptions for 1,915 receiving yards, 14 receiving touchdowns, 248 yards on 30 career carries, and three rushing touchdowns. In a sentence, this young man can do just about everything.
