A preview of how wide receiver J’Mon Moore fits in the Green Bay Packers offense.
Jordy Nelson wasn’t able to return to form after his injury. The season started off well, but he quickly vanished after Rodgers went down.
Moore posted a 4.60-second 40-yard dash time at the combine, according to NFL.com, followed up with a 4.48 time at his pro day. Game tape will show that he plays closer to 4.48 than 4.60.
The Packers receivers have had a hard time creating separation in recent years.
The combine measures quickness and agility with two drills: the three-cone drill and the 20-yard shuttle. Moore posted a 6.56-second three-cone drill to go along with a 4.04-second 20-yard shuttle.
His three-cone drill tied him for first among wide receivers while his 20-yard shuttle was second.
Another strength for Moore is his route-running ability. Rodgers is a stickler when it comes to his wide receivers running the correct routes.
Watch the clip below that shows Moore’s quickness in and out of cuts along with his sharpness in routes.
At the end of preseason, Moore will slide into the number three spot, barring injury. Meaning, he will be opposite of Adams with Cobb in the slot.
Last year, the Green Bay Packers were able to hit on three late-round running backs. General manager Brian Gutekunst is hoping to do the same with wide receivers this year.
