Skyy Moore is definitely not the biggest wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft, but don't let his size fool you. What he lacks in stature he makes up in quickness, toughness, and savvy. The skill set combined with his production last season at Western Michigan will be more than enough for an NFL team to make him a Day 2 pick, and he may even go earlier than expected.

Draft Profile: Skyy Moore
College: Western Michigan
Moore filled a big void left by Dee Eskridge, Seattle’s second-round pick last spring. He’s an undersized but quick playmaker with the kind of short-area burst to thrive as an underneath catch-and-run threat. He often aligned in the slot and worked the middle of the field in WMU's RPO-heavy offense, with the toughness to work in traffic and secure the ball. His competitiveness, quickness and low center of gravity allow him to slip tackles after the catch. He can threaten the top of a defense with his long speed, but he’s also a savvy route-runner with a good feel for leveraging defensive backs, and he should be difficult to handle with a two-way go.
He's undersized, both in terms of length and frame, and Moore lacks the large catch radius or contested-catch ability you want in a downfield threat. He'll also have to come up with a more diverse plan for dealing with press coverage, as he won’t be able to overmatch NFL opponents with his quickness.
He has some limitations due to size and might be exclusively a slot receiver, but Moore has the kind of quickness and toughness to be a productive pro for a long time if paired with the right quarterback.
Final Grade: 3rd/4th Round
