Packers take Missouri WR J'Mon Moore late in fourth round

He posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons to close college career


GREEN BAY – After focusing on defense for the first two days of the draft, the Packers turned to the offensive side for their first pick on Day 3.

Green Bay chose Missouri wide receiver J'Mon Moore with a late fourth-round pick on Saturday, No. 133 overall.

Moore (6-3, 207) has topped 1,000 yards receiving each of the last two years for the Tigers, putting up very similar numbers. He had 62 catches for 1,012 yards and eight TDs in 2016, and then 65-1,082-10 last season.

The biggest knock against Moore is his inconsistent hands, as he struggled with dropped passes in his college career, particularly in 2016. He also ran a disappointing 4.6-second 40-yard dash at the scouting combine but then improved it a few weeks later with a 4.49 at Missouri's pro day.

Moore was one of the players the Packers hosted on a pre-draft visit.
