Which wide receiver should Cleveland Browns target with the 26th pick?
2. Rondale Moore
Rondale Moore might be the most intriguing prospect out of these three wide receivers that the Browns could draft. He has elite speed and twitch without sacrificing any strength.
During his pro day, Rondale Moore ran a blazing 4.29-second 40-yard dash. He also showed major bounce by jumping 42.5-inches on the vertical jump.
Moore was also seen in a recent video squatting 600-pounds.
Those measurements would easily make Rondale Moore one of the most athletic wide receivers to enter the NFL in a long time. But he has one major physical concern. He’s only 5-foot-7 and 180-pounds.
Rondale Moore has the speed, hops, and strength to be a premier wide receiver in the NFL but the size is very concerning. Good wide receivers under 5-foot-10 are rare, a good wide receiver at 5-foot-7 has never happened before.
The other knock on Moore is that he didn’t run much more than bubble screens and pop-passes in college. He will likely take longer than average to get acclimated to the NFL and master a traditional route tree.
Moore is probably the most high-risk, high-reward prospect this draft has. In the best-case scenario for Moore, he is just as fast and stronger than Tyreek Hill. In the worst-case scenario, he can never get past his size and fails to be productive in the big leagues.
If the Browns select Rondale Moore, and he pans out, the Browns offense has the potential to become a perennial top-5 offense in the league.
