Replacing Jordy Nelson: J'Mon Moore knows he has big shoes to fill with the Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers made an interesting decision this offseason, letting star WR Jordy Nelson go to the Oakland Raiders.
Now, the team has a big opening at receiver, as the Packers need someone to step up alongside Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
In the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Packers chose former Mizzou WR J’Mon Moore, and he knows he’ll be expected to fill some of Nelson’s incredible production (via ESPN.com):
“I mean, I thought about that as soon as I got drafted,” said Moore, the Packers’ fourth-round pick. “I plan on coming in here and working, getting in where I fit in and making the best of every opportunity that I get.”
Moore is thrilled that he gets to work with Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers, who is one of the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL:
“He’s the GOAT,” Moore said during rookie camp. “So I’m ready to meet him, I’m ready to go out there and work with him, and hopefully be one of his favorite targets. So I’m going to make sure I’m on my P’s and Q’s and make sure I’m working and make sure I get that connection with him. Go out there and put up some yards for him.”
Moore has a long way to go before anyone mistakes him for Jordy Nelson, but if he has a big preseason, Rodgers will find ways to get him the ball this fall.
