4. Skyy Moore - WR

Skyy Moore is in a similar boat to Kadarius Toney. He missed the end of last season with an injury and was disappointing when on the field, paving the way for other wide receivers to potentially take his job.

Through two seasons, the former second-round pick has only 494 receiving yards and one TD. Those aren't encouraging numbers given the draft capital the Chiefs used to require him. Barring a dramatic turnaround in training camp, Moore will enter the season as the fourth or fifth receiver on the depth chart with an uphill climb to true contribution.

We've seen examples in the past of receivers needing a few years to catch up to NFL game speed, and maybe Moore will be another guy who just takes longer to develop. He played against mediocre competition at Western Michigan in college, so it makes sense that his stellar separating ability didn't immediately translate.

However, the Chiefs are trying to three-peat and make NFL history. They don't have the luxury of patience to let Moore keep working through his mistakes and he's obviously failed to earn Mahomes' trust through two seasons.

Similar to Toney, Moore should have an opportunity to correct past mistakes while Rice is suspended, though I don't imagine he'll get many chances.
