Kansas City Chiefs receivers seem to have a knack for making diving catches at training camp so far.
Earlier in the week, it was JuJu Smith-Schuster making a crazy route adjustment and diving grab. This time it was rookie WR Skyy Moore hauling in a pass from QB Chad Henne against rookie slot CB Nazeeh Johnson. The coverage of the play was about as good as you could ask for it to be, with Johnson running stride-for-stride with Moore deep down the field. There was a bit of an armbar between the two of them, but it didn’t really matter in the end. Moore used his momentum to fall forward and catch the pass as he was going to the ground. Henne put it in front of him where Moore was the only one with a chance at it.
We’ve seen a lot of great play from the new wide receiver group at training camp so far, with each of Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Moore and Smith-Schuster having their moments through three days of practice. Patrick Mahomes and Chad Henne seem to be working on building up that chemistry with the new guys ahead of the preseason.
If Moore can continue to make plays like this, but with Mahomes throwing him the ball instead of Henne, he’ll find plenty of work in Andy Reid’s offense as a rookie.
