Player Scouting Report

Players Scouting Reviewer : johnpes . Position :Wide Receiver [WR]

Moore possesses phenomenal speed and always looks like the fastest player on the field. He is able to utilize this to generate RAC and get open all over the field.
Pass Catching
Though Moore caught over 110 passes his first season at Purdue, he did have some drops and bobbles along the way. Catch radius is also a limited part of his game.
Route Running
Moore has mostly utilized his speed to get open, which has been extremely effective. He could really take the next step as a receiver if he develops more routes.
Vertical Ability
At only 5'9" Moore does not have the size to go up and make a lot of contested catches on 50/50 balls. However, when the defender has his back turned he has the vertical capability to make some of these plays.
Run after Catch
Moore is fantastic at generating RAC. Utilizing his quickness and strong legs, once he gets in space he is able to make guys missed, break tackles from DBs and fight for extra yards,
Catching in Traffic
In stride with guys on his back he is typically able to come down with the ball, on more contested passes down the field or along the sideline he struggles a bit.
Big Play Ability
In big games vs Ohio State and Wisconsin in 2018 this ability was on full display. At any moment, Moore has the ability to completely change the game, no matter the opponent. His quickness and strength allows him to turn any play into a big one.
Deep Threat
Moore has the speed to run past defenders down the field. However, he can work on his deep routes to get open more consistently. Additionally, lacking top end size prevents him from being able to go up to make contested catches.
Over the Middle
Rondale Moore runs a lot of underneath routes and crossing routes. Both of which he can get open and make catches. If he wants to get any run after the catch though, he desperately tries to break to the outside where there is more space.
Moore is very fast and agile and is able to utilize this to get himself open all across the field. Additionally, he is always a big play threat due to his run after catch ability. Moore is also a versatile player who can line up in the backfield, run jet sweeps, return punts and kicks, etc.
It remains to be seen how Rondale Moore comes out after missing most of 2019 with an injury. Lacks size to go up and make contested catches. Limited catch radius.
Overall Analysis
Since stepping on campus as a freshman, Moore has been the focal point of the Boilermaker offense. He was insanely productive in his freshman season in 2018 with 13 total TDs and big games against Ohio State and Wisconsin. Unfortunately he missed most of 2019 due to injury, though he did keep up this level of production when he played. Despite all the talent, Moore can still improve on his catch radius and sharpen up his route running and hands. As he lines up in the slot most plays, he can mostly avoid elite opposing corners so this may be a tough transition going to the next level.
