With Jameis Winston the likely starter next season in New Orleans and the Saints not able to grab one of the top prospects in this draft, getting Winston some weapons seems to be the best way to go for the cash-strapped saints. Winston loves bombing it deep, but Sean Payton thrives with shiftier YAc guys, Toney could help scratch both of those itches.
Toney only has one year of sustained production, but he was one of the most dominant players in the SEC, as his borderline illegal ability to shake tacklers is paired with quality top-end speed and soft hands (leading to one of the lowest drop rates in the country). Toney and Michael Thomas crossing over the middle could help Winston out as he tries to replace Drew Brees.
After the Packers foolishly failed to grab Aaron Rodgers any more perimeter weapons in last year’s draft, selecting Moore would show that they learned the error of their ways. The Boilermakers didn’t surround Moore with a ton of talent, but he still proved to be one of the most dangerous receivers in the country.
Selections like Marquise Brown have proven that drafting receivers as small as the 5-9, 181-pound Moore can pay off, and his athletic testing numbers are off the charts, matching up with the visuals of a slippery, explosive playmaker both on vertical routes and as a runner. Moore would finally give defenses another speed threat on Green Bay to worry about that isn’t named Davante Adams.
