The Arizona Cardinals pick Rondale Moore No. 49 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday night.

Cardinals Pick Rondale Moore No. 49 Overall In 2021 NFL Draft

The Cardinals selected Rondale Moore with the 49th pick in this year’s draft, adding another playmaker to an exciting offense that already includes Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, and Chase Edmonds.

Moore is undersized at 5-foot-7, but he has a thick frame, weighing in at 181 pounds. Pound for pound, Moore might be the most athletic wide receiver in this year’s draft. He’s an explosive player with the elusiveness to make big plays after the catch. He can be a weapon in the slot or even out of the backfield.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury has a new toy at his disposal. I expect him to utilize Moore all over the field. He should be a weapon for this offense. Moore is an absolute playmaker who makes an exciting offense even more explosive. Taking Moore was a fantastic decision by the Cardinals.

Rondale Moore 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Moore has a clear path to targets as the WR3 in Arizona. He has an outside chance at soaking more targets than Christian Kirk. I expect Moore to also take away passing game usage from Chase Edmonds. This is a super-athletic player who reminds me of Percy Harvin.

Moore looks like an upside WR5 in season-long leagues this year. While he won’t command a large enough target share as a rookie, he’s worth taking a shot on in the later rounds because of his big-play ability.

Rondale Moore Dynasty Fantasy Football Outlook

Moore was a steal in the second round. He had no business going behind Kadarius Toney.

Moore is tied to an impressive young quarterback in Murray with an alpha wide receiver one in Hopkins to open up space in the slot. Don’t let his size deter you from investing in dynasty leagues because of the Harvin-like upside here. This is going to be an explosive offense.
