5. WR Rondale Moore, Purdue

Another wide receiver, to some, Rondale Moore might just be the most intriguing wide receiver in the Big Ten. After originally opting out of the 2020 college football season, Moore opted back in, deciding to return to school for his junior season.

Through just two seasons at Purdue, Moore has put together some impressive numbers. With 143 receptions for 1645 yards and 14 touchdowns, it’s clear that production isn’t an issue for Moore, who’s averaged 11.5 yards per reception.

Moore fits into what the Bears are building on offense perfectly. He can be another gadget player for head coach Matt Nagy or he could be another explosive playmaker to compliment someone like Allen Robinson. He’s the type of player that you can have line up in the slot and have him catch a number of high percentage throws that will keep the chains moving.

There are only two major things to be concerned about regarding Moore is his play strength. While he is listed at 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, he certainly plays bigger than his size, however, the question remains: Will this translate over to the NFL? Second, how durable is Moore? After playing in just four games in 2019, NFL scouts likely want to see a full season from him to prove that injuries won’t be a concern at the next level.
