J’Mon Moore’s rookie season didn’t go to plan, but a new offense could help him get back on track in year two.
For both Moore and the Packers, they should forget about 2018. This is a new year with a brand new offense, and that gives every player on offense a new opportunity.
In 2018, Moore had two catches for 15 yards. He also had four kickoff returns for 107 yards, averaging 25.5 yards per return. His longest return was 37 yards.
After being selected in Round 4 of the 2018 NFL Draft, Moore’s rookie season didn’t go as expected. Moore struggled to get on the field, playing on less than seven percent of the team’s offensive snaps, according to Pro Football Reference.
Odds of making roster: 70 percent
Even after struggling last season, there’s a good chance Moore will make the 53-man roster. First of all, the Packers invested a fourth-round pick just a year ago, and they’ll be hoping Moore can improve in his second year and in a new offense.
And with no notable offseason additions at wide receiver, general manager Brian Gutekunst has shown he’s happy with the current roster.
What to expect in 2019?
Moore will first need to secure a position of the 53-man roster, and he could have competition from Jake Kumerow, Trevor Davis and Allen Lazard. But if Moore makes the roster, it’ll be after playing well at training camp.
The key for Moore, and all of the wide receivers, will be quickly adjusting to LaFleur’s offense.
Even after a quiet rookie season, Moore still has the potential to have an expanded role in the Green Bay Packers offense this year.
