The idea of adding even more dynamic weapons to the Chargers offense sounds like a fever dream for bother Justin Herbert and the fan base. Despite this team needing plenty of help in the trenches, the Bolts front office isn’t going to keep themselves from meeting with their fair share of pass-catchers and other potential weaponry in this year’s class.

One of the most-notable meetings for the Chargers thus far has been with Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore. According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, Moore has recently met with the Chargers, as well as the 49ers, Saints, Colts and a plethora of other teams.

The 5’9, 181-pound Moore broke out in emphatic fashion for the Boilermakers in 2018 as a true freshman when he caught 114 passes for 1,258 yards and a whopping 12 touchdowns. He also carried the football 21 times for 213 yards and another two scores.

Unfortunately, that season would be the peak of Moore’s collegiate career as he struggled with injuries in both 2019 and 2020. In his final two campaigns, Moore played in just seven games. combining for 64 passes, 687 receiving yards, and four total touchdowns.

Despite missing over three quarters of his final two seasons, Moore is still considered a potential first-round pick purely based on how incredibly game-breaking he can be when healthy. If you want to talk about this draft class’ best home-run hitters, it’s impossible not to include Moore.

With his injury history, it’s likely Moore is there around the top of round two. How would you feel if the Bolts came out of this year’s draft with a player of Moore’s talent? Yay or nay? Would he be worth the sacrifice at other positions?
