The KC Chiefs will need to address the wide receiver position over the offseason and do just that in the latest CBS Sports mock draft.
Tyreek Hill might be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, but the Kansas City Chiefs are likely going to lose Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson and could also lose Byron Pringle this offseason while Mecole Hardman will be halfway through his rookie contract. The Chiefs need to find a talented receiver to line up on the other side of the field from Hill and that’s what Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports has them doing in his recent mock draft.
In that mock draft, Wilson had the Chiefs going with Purdue receiver Rondale Moore at pick No. 32. Here was his reasoning for pairing these two together:
"The Chiefs didn’t need Clyde Edwards-Helaire a year ago and they certainly don’t need Rondale Moore here, but what’s better than one Tyreek Hill? Two of them. Moore isn’t Hill — no one is — but he flashes many of the same explosive traits, and with Sammy Watkins, DeMarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle headed for free agency, the Chiefs could be looking for a fresh crop of wideouts to run roughshod over the rest of the league."
Moore played in just three games for Purdue this past season before making the decision to opt-out and prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft. He was targeted heavily in the three games he did appear in, recording at least seven catches in each game with his lowest yardage being 76. He didn’t find the end zone in any of these games, but defenses zeroed in on him in the red zone, which didn’t help his case.
In 2019, Moore only played in four games but had 220 yards receiving and a touchdown in a win over Vanderbilt. As a freshman in 2018, Moore totaled over 100 yards receiving in seven of his 13 games. Missouri fans might remember the name Rondale Moore because he went off for 137 yards and a touchdown against them in 2018.
Rondale Moore could give the KC Chiefs a replica of Tyreek Hill.
Moore would provide the speed that Andy Reid and the Chiefs offense covets so this would be a match made in heaven for sure. Some might say the team doesn’t need to draft a wide receiver in the first round, but considering how many wideouts they’ll have hitting free agency, this is as good a time as ever to take a receiver in round one.
How would you feel about the KC Chiefs drafting Moore?
