For the Arizona Cardinals, Rondale Moore in round two was either a steal or a shot in the dark on a talented player who has dealt with injuries over the last two seasons.

For college coaches, they are just glad they don’t have to deal with Rondale Moore anymore.

ESPN talked to a number of college coaches and the ones in the Big Ten gushed about Moore.

Rondale Moore earned consensus All-America honors in 2018, the first Big Ten true freshman to do so, but injuries limited him to seven games over the past two seasons.

“I actually thought, he’s going to be a surprise late first-rounder,” a Big Ten assistant said. “That game he played against Ohio State is one thing, but he’s like that all the time.”

Added a Big Ten coach: “He’s one of the most dynamic players I’ve ever seen live, but seven games in two years — the first round’s about guarantees. When he’s healthy and he’s playing, it’s guaranteed he’s going to be one of the best players on the field.”

These quotes should get you excited. This has nothing to do with the Arizona Cardinals, the fit, playing for Kliff Kingsbury, playing with Kyler Murray. This is solely about Moore the player.

He is one of the most dynamic players in the league with the ball in his hands.

He can become something special for the Cardinals. Let’s just hope he can stay healthy and reach that potential.
