Carolina Panthers: 3 players who could make the Madden cover
Carolina Panthers Player No. 2: D.J. Moore (WR)
Another player that could be in contention for a future Madden cover is wide receiver D.J. Moore. The Carolina Panthers struck gold with their 2017 first-round pick. And he has the potential to become one of the NFL’s best at the position in the coming years.
There is nothing Moore cannot do on the field. He is a dynamic presence down the field. And he also possesses the elite route-running qualities over short and intermediate play calls that further aide his team.
The fact Moore managed to gain 87 receptions, 1,145 receiving yards, and four touchdowns in 2019 with the quarterback distribution at his disposal was a testament to his talent. His efforts throughout the season also saw him secured a 13.5 yards-per-catch average and an eye-catching 82.3 grade from Pro Football Focus.
There is just no telling what the former Maryland standout is capable of in Joe Brady’s offense. The new offensive coordinator is renowned for getting the ball downfield early and often during contests. And this could see Moore propel himself into the conversation of best in the business.
Time is on the player’s side in a bid to possibly fall onto the Madden cover star. He is two or three years away from his prime. And it would be a big surprise if the player didn’t continue trending on an upward curve for the foreseeable future.
Not only would a strong 2020 give Moore some extra notoriety across the league. But it would also put him in an extremely strong position when it comes to a possible contract extension. The receiver has two years left on his rookie deal. And a prolific year three would leave Carolina no other alternative other them to pay him top dollar.
