Purdue wide receiver and 2021 NFL draft prospect, Rondale Moore, ran a blazing 4.28 40-yard dash at the Boilermakers pro day on Tuesday, according to multiple media members in attendance.

Moore also had an exceptional vertical jump:

It wasn’t all good news for Moore, however. He checked-in shorter than expected at 5’7, bringing his NFL fit into focus. Is he a wide receiver? A running back? It’s a tough call.
NFL scout at Purdue pro-day just texted that WR Rondale Moore measured 5070, not 5077 as previously reported. Still a dynamic playmaker. With this gross height deficiency many NFL teams might now be projecting him into more of sub-downs RB role than when they thought he was 5’9”.

As Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy points out, at worst, Moore will be a fantastic sub-package running back. His traits project as an explosive playmaker regardless of where he lines up. Get the ball in his hands and watch the fireworks show.
Moore is likely to come off the board somewhere in the middle portion of Day 2.
