Skyy Moore NFL Draft Player Profile


High School

Skyy Moore is a former 3-star recruit out of Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. According to 247sports, in high school, Moore did not play a single season at the wide receiver position. Instead he played cornerback and quarterback and was good enough of a corner to earn 4 Division I offers. These schools were Howard, Rice, Robert Morris and Western Michigan. After receiving these offers, I am not surprised that Moore decided that he wanted to be a Bronco given their recent success the past few years.

As you could probably imagine, Moore is a tremendous athlete. According to, in high school, Moore became the first player in conference history to rush and pass for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.



According to Western Michigan’s website, Moore did not play a single snap at cornerback. I found this to be interesting because that is why he was recruited to play for the Broncos. With this being said, Moore had a very smooth transition to wide receiver. During the 2019 season, Moore was able to rack up a total of 51 receptions for 802 yards and 3 touchdowns. Although this year was very impressive considering it was his first year playing wide receiver, his progression continued during the 2020 season. In this season, Moore played in 5 out of the 6 total games. In these games he had 25 receptions for 388 yards and 3 touchdowns. Personally, I think that these numbers are very good considering that his snaps were limited.

Finally, his senior season was the most productive by a large margin. He racked up a total of 95 receptions for 1,292 yards and 10 touchdowns.





Skyy Moore is one of the most agile receivers in this 2022 NFL Draft class. He is most effective when running slant and crossing routes because of his ability to slip passed defenders. With this being said, he does a fantastic job of using his quick feet to create separation deep down the field. A perfect example of this was against Eastern Michigan this past season. He abused the defense all game, epsecially during a 74-yard touchdown that stood out to me. On this play, he slipped passed the defender who was in press coverage and had nothing but open field in front of him.



Considering that Moore is 5’10” and 195 lbs, I found him to be a very tough player. When Moore has the ball in his hands, it is very difficult to bring him down. While watching his film, it reminded me of the saying “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog”. This perfectly describes him because I never saw him give up on a play, even when the play looked to be over.


Run After Catch

As I briefly noted earlier, Moore is very good at extending plays. When Moore sees green grass in front of him, good luck trying to stop him. Moore does a good job of using his small frame to his advantage in order to gain extra yards. He uses his small frame to slip tackles and then uses his elite agility to do the rest.



As I noted in his player profile, he played cornerback in high school and quickly changed to wide receiver. Given that Moore is around the average size for a cornerback, he is undersized for the wide receiver position. With this being said, I think that he could use his smaller frame to his advantage in the NFL by lining up in the slot. However, even though his smaller size can be used in the NFL, there is a weakness and that weakness is his run blocking. From the film that I watched, Moore was a liability when run blocking. This was primarily the case because he would be blocking someone who was bigger than him. I see this as a red flag because people in the NFL are usually bigger than most college football players. So, if he struggles to block college defenders, he stands no chance against NFL defenders.

Catching Deep Balls

Although Moore has very good hands, he has a tendency to use his body to catch deep balls. This isn’t that much of a red flag at the moment because Moore primarily runs short routes. However, down the line he will need to be more versatile and be effective deep down the field. The first step of being effective down the field is being able to go up and grab the ball.

Draft Stock

Personally, I think that Moore will go in the top half of the draft because of the demand for slot receivers. With that being said, I think that Moore will get drafted in the early part of the third round.

Final Thoughts on Skyy Moore NFL Draft Scouting Report

Given the fact that Moore never played a snap at wide receiver prior to college, I would say that he is Moore is a very talent receiver prospect. He still has some improvements to make before he becomes a starter, but I think he will be a solid rotational slot receiver. Overall, I think that Moore is showing positive potential of having an effective NFL career, I just think that he needs to work on some fundamentals.

Player Comparison

Moore’s size and frame reminds me a lot of Randall Cobb. His play style reminds me of Sterling Shepard and his confidence and drive to get better reminds me of Odell Beckham Jr. Keep in mind, I am not necessarily saying Moore will be as good as these players, he just has aspects of his game that are similar.
