Chris Trapasso, an NFL draft analyst for CBS Sports, listed Moore as the rookie wide receiver that he expects to have the most productive 2022 season.
From CBS Sports:
I raved about Moore during the pre-draft process — he finished with a mid first-round grade for me — and, of course, since he was drafted to play with Patrick Mahomes in a Tyreek Hill-less Chiefs offense, the raving about Moore continued. Sure, there’s Travis Kelce. He’s option No. 1. But who becomes option No. 2 for Mahomes is completely up for grabs right now. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have been productive in the NFL already and Mecole Hardman has an established rapport with Mahomes.
Moore has a massive opportunity as a rookie, thanks to the absence of star wide receiver Tyreek Hill (who was traded from Kansas City to the Miami Dolphins earlier this offseason).
The former Western Michigan standout will have to battle veterans JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling for playing time in 2022, but he should be able to carve out a role fairly quickly in Andy Reid’s offense.
Moore has the most upside of any wide receiver on the Chiefs’ roster. While he may not have the same blazing speed as Hill, he’s still got more than enough speed to stretch the field and become a reliable downfield target for quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
