David Moore edges out someone shocking for a roster spot
Wide receiver David Moore came out of the unheralded Division II school East Central University in Oklahoma (I don’t even have a licensed picture I can use of him), but Pete Carroll called him a “stud receiver.” Moore making the roster is long odds his rookie season, with several receivers presumably ahead of him on the depth chart.
Beyond starters Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, the Seahawks also have Cyril Grayson, Amarah Darboh, Kenny Lawler, Paul Richardson, and so on. Even Jermaine Kearse, who was rated as one of the worst receivers in the league last year, is probably ahead of Moore, banking on a rebound year.
But this is a series of bold predictions. Moore could come into Training Camp and blow the socks off the coaches. He could shine in Preseason, he could beat Richard Sherman for a touchdown in practice–wait, maybe not that. Moore could be a sneaky receiver in this league, however.
Seahawks scouts have apparently been keeping tabs on the receiver at East Central (did they run out of directions to call the school?) for a while. He set a school record with 13 touchdowns his senior season, and he ran a 4.43 40-yard dash. If Moore finds a niche for his speed, he could turn heads.
