Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Size and length are both limited. Moore could stand to add on a little bit of weight, especially if he gets moved to the slot permanently. Frame is average, but this category gets a boost since Moore was extremely durable during his time at Western Michigan. While he still weighs in at 195, Moore's most notable injury was a lower body injury that he suffered against Michigan in the first half of the year that only kept him out for the rest of that one.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Toughness is above the line with flashes of outstanding. Moore is more than willing to put his body on the line to make contested catches over the middle of the field (AT Pittsburgh/Q1/13:10). Instincts are adequate with Moore generally knowing where to go when the play breaks down and where to sit when teams were playing zone coverage. Effort and motor are above the line with Moore being willing to throw blocks on the perimeter while also doing whatever he can to stay upright despite being on the smaller side.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Explosiveness is above the line while speed is adequate. Moore is player that is quicker than he is fast; however, Moore did display flashes of being a home run threat from the slot (AT Northern Illinois/Q2/10:27). Body control is adequate, but there were certainly times where Moore was pushed around far too easily just due to his size and frame. Flexibility and bend are above the line with Moore being able to get small against bigger defenders in order to create at least a little bit of separation. Change of direction is adequate with flashes of above the line. He was able to stop on a dime to elude defenders, but this was inconsistent. Play strength is average but has the chance to improve if Moore adds to his frame.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Did return kicks occasionally at WMU, but this is not a big part of his game. Perimeter blocking is adequate with Moore being able to hold his own despite his size deficiencies. Suddenness and release off of the line are both above the line with flashes of outstanding. Moore displays above the line shiftiness, especially from the slot (AT Northern Illinois/Q2/8:49). Route running is adequate with Moore not running a variety of different routes, but he still shows glimpses of above the line route running with how sharp and quick his routes are from the slot. Vertical threat ability is average as Moore isn't deceptive enough to create separation on deep routes (AT Michigan/Q1/10:15). Ball skills are adequate with Moore displaying some signs of being able to progress to above the line in that area if he moves to the slot receiver position. He is not a contested catch receiver at the high point, but he can certainly make contested catches across the middle of the field. Run after the catch ability is adequate with Moore showing adequate patience and vision on screen passes (AT Pittsburgh/Q2/2:36) while also displaying a little bit of home run threat ability.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Prior to arriving at Western Michigan, Skyy Moore was a two-time Offensive Player of the Year in the Allegheny Conference as a QB and a one-time Defensive Player of the Year as a defensive back. Moore made the switch to wide receiver when he got to WMU, and immediately made a huge impact on the Broncos' offense. His freshman season, Moore recorded 51 REC for 802 YDS and 3 TDS on top of being the first Western Michigan receiver to be named to First Team All-MAC since Corey Davis in 2016. During a COVID-shortened season, Moore still made a big contribution to WMU's offense as he compiled 25 REC for 388 YDS and 3 TDS in just five games while also having touchdowns in three-straight games that year. In his final season with Western Michigan, Moore shined as he recorded career-highs in catches (95), receiving yards (1,292), and touchdowns (10) en route to making First Team All-MAC for the second time in his career and tying a school record for touchdowns in a single game with four against Northern Illinois. Moore is a winning backup/SLOT receiver who wins with his shiftiness, explosiveness, and his release off of the line from the slot. Moore will need to add more muscle while also expanding his route tree in order to see the field more from the SLOT receiver position.
