Still, Moore was the 13th receiver chosen and the fourth in a five-pick span on Friday despite the fact he led FBS with 26 tackles missed against last season, according to PFF.
Moore is 5-10, 195 pounds — essentially a Hill clone, size-wize. Still, asking any player to replace Hill right out of the gate is a fool’s errand, especially with so many other weapons at Patrick Mahomes‘ disposal.

Moore probably won’t be as dynamic as Hill — who is? — but should contribute to Kansas City right away, especially given the huge hole HIll left in its offense.
Mecole Hardman, who the Chiefs chose in a comparable selection (No. 56 in 2019), was a Pro Bowler in his rookie season (albeit as a returner) and netted 26 catches for 538 yards and six receiving touchdowns, plus a rushing score as well.
