Skyy Moore Key Stats:
Wide Receiver, Western Michigan
Projection: Either Julian Edelman or Andy Isabella. There is no middle ground.
Pitt, Michigan, Kent State, Northern Illinois, Ball State
Positives Scouts Saw:
- Incredible route runner and elite first step
- Wins with quickness and elusiveness
- Great hands
Negatives Scouts Saw:
- He has a limited route tree and comes from an RPO offense
- Smaller catch radius
- Smaller frame
Positives I Saw:
- Quick, fluid, elusive
- “Can make people miss in a phone booth”
- Can play any wide receiver spot on the field
Negatives I Saw:
- Abusing MAC defensive backs is not always super impressive
- Only runs four or five routes
As A Prospect:
Skyy Moore is quite possibly the premier slot guy in this draft. His ability to line up everywhere and make people miss in close space should translate well into the next level. His footwork and intelligence during scramble drills show a player who should develop into a great system player at the next level. He is a bit thicker than Jahan Dotson, who also projects as a possession slot, and I think both players do a lot of the same stuff very well. The RPO offense he was in limited his opportunity to show off what he can do, but he still got reliably open against all levels of competition (though most of it was against MAC defensive backs).
Fantasy Football Potential:
Skyy Moore in redraft is a low-level bench flyer that could be a last-round value or a DFS weekly play (especially in formats that score with full PPR). I think Moore’s initial value is primarily in dynasty, where he has the potential to be a PPR gem in the early second round. I’ve seen him go before Dotson as a trendy pick after the combine, but I think both are great potential value around 2.03 and beyond. Skyy Moore has bust potential, but he also has breakout potential. I believe that he is worth the risk and I will take that chance if he is there.
Skyy was so fun to watch, even when he was putting up touchdown after touchdown on my alma mater. He makes all the catches, shakes DBs off the line to get open quickly on slants, and has 4.4 40 speed. I worry that he will be stuck on the inside because of his size, but Moore shines on the sidelines with his body control and awareness of where the boundary is at all times. An NFL coaching staff will figure out the best place to put him, and at that point, I think the Skyy’s the limit (eh? EH?). Our guy Ken, a key contributor on the FA Discord is convinced that Moore is closer to an elite slot than just some guy who beat up on bad defenses in college, so if he’s great blame me and if he sucks blame Ken.
