David Moore is maddeningly inconsistent. He will have a game where he catches four touchdown passes in three games (weeks five through seven of 2018) and then have a stretch of four games where he has a combined 16 yards receiving while catching 2 of his 12 targets (weeks 12 through 15 of 2018).
2019 wasn’t much better as Moore’s production actually went down. After catching 26 passes in 2018, Moore had just 17 in 2019. He had 5 touchdown receptions in 2018 and 2 last year. But then, this is the same receiver who over his three-year career averages 17.3 yards per catch.
The Seahawks need a good third option behind stars Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. Phillip Dorsett might be a good slot receiver and fill that role. But Moore shouldn’t make the roster. He is far too inconsistent and Seattle cannot have players disappear for games on end.
Seattle also chose two receivers in this year’s draft, Stephen Sullivan and Freddie Swain. Sullivan is bigger than Moore. Swain is faster. Either of these guys could easily take Moore’s roster spot and maybe both of them.
This would leave the Seahawks with a group that consists of Lockett, Metcalf, Dorsett, Swain, maybe Sullivan or maybe Josh Gordon. That is a better group without Moore.
