2. Can J’Mon Moore bounce back?
Last week’s preseason opener certainly wasn’t a bad evening for fourth-round pick J’Mon Moore, but it was nowhere near as good as it could have been.
To have an important role in Green Bay’s offense this year, Moore will need to earn Aaron Rodgers’ trust. A big part of that isn’t just being in the right place at the right time, but also catching the football. Drops were an issue for Moore last week.
A concern for Moore when he was drafted was the fact he dropped too many passes, as noted in his NFL.com draft profile, and this is something he will need to improve.
Moore has been compared to Davante Adams on many occasions this offseason. Don’t forget that Adams had his own issues with drops back in 2015, before his breakout season in 2016.
But when a receiver like Jake Kumerow is catching seemingly everything thrown his way — and earning Rodgers’ trust in the process, as reported by Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel — it’s difficult to keep Moore ahead of him on the depth chart.
Moore clearly has a lot of potential. He did a lot right in the preseason opener, but too often he doesn’t do the easy bit, catching the football.
Moore will have an opportunity to bounce back against the Steelers.
