A prospect that may fall to Saints at No. 28: WR, Rondale Moore, Purdue
The Saints ended up releasing Emmanuel Sanders this season after signing him to a two-year contract last offseason. Unfortunately, the salary cap proved to be too much for Sanders’ $7.5 million per year this offseason.
The Big Ten receiver totaled over 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards in his freshman season. He also accumulated 12 touchdowns in 13 games. 2018 was undoubtedly Moore’s best season as he only played in seven total games his sophomore and junior year.
However, that didn’t stop the receiver from averaging 13.3 yards per receptions in the four games he played in his sophomore season. Moore’s speed and agility are apparent every time he touches the ball.
He is a guaranteed big-play threat every down.
According to CBS Sports, Rondale Moore is the No. 20 ranked prospect and the No. 5 ranked wide receiver behind the ones projected to go in the top 10.
In recently released mock drafts though receiver Kadarius Tooney and Rashod Bateman have rivaled Moore in the first round meaning that Moore could find himself sliding to No. 28. Moore could even slip into the second round if he manages to get past New Orleans.
