5. WR Rondale Moore, Purdue
Another wide receiver that many assumed would be a first-round pick, Rondale Moore will likely hear his name called early on day two. However, if he continues to slide, he should be an ideal fit for the Bears’ offense.
There are two main reasons why Moore is likely to continue falling down the draft board. First, he’s just 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, which means his size is a question mark. Size then feeds into Moore’s injury history, which has hindered his production between 2019 and 2020. Second, Moore really only had one year of great production, which was his freshman year in 2018. As a true freshman, he had 114 receptions for 1258 yards and 12 touchdowns.
When healthy, Moore has the ability to be a game-changing wide receiver from the slot. In the Bears offense, Moore could be placed all over the field, giving head coach Matt Nagy another option to use out of the backfield or in the slot. Moore would also do some damage after the catch, something that is valued in Nagy’s offense.
