Kenny Moore has been the star of TC, what are his regular season expectations?

Besides the guys you would expect to be looking great like DeAngelo and Beason, Kenny Moore has impressed the most so far.

What do you think we'll see from him when the games start to count though? Assuming he's the #2 (which you can never do knowing Fox, I wouldn't be surprised to see Jarrett as the #2), what kind of NFL player would you compare him too? When I see him practice, I see a Patrick Crayton-like guy. Looks like he has great hands, works very hard, very intelligent guy that knows exactly what he's doing out there.

smith on one side, jarrett/lafell on the other.

moore will be the WR3 at best. lafell will be on the field more just because of his blocking ability.

still not sold on moore this year but i'm warming up to the idea. i'd like to see him first hand first and then in preseason games before i come anywhere close to being comfortable with him.

Moore is more comfortable with Moore than with any other receiver out there. That will mean Moore will get plenty of playing time and throws.

Here is a pick from today. Moore seems to be tight with Kenny, talks to him frequently and seems more outgoing with him.

With Armanti crapping the bed Moore could be a lock for the 3rd WR position behind Brandi and Smith

Kenny is one of the most likable, down to earth guys you could ever meet. Well-grounded and will outwork anyone else out there. Spent some time working out with him prior to his senior year at Wake and his work ethic was unbelievable. I have no doubt that he will be a significant contributor to the Panthers this season!

I don't think there's a chance in hell that LaFell starts, at least not early on this season. A 3rd round rookie starting at receiver right away, especially with him having a fair number of drops so far? I don't see that happening.

I am with teh Kurb. Moore has always been a Practice Star but not so much come game time.

I think your gonna be shocked then. He will be out there for his blocking alone. LaFell will prob hold down the #2 spot.

One of the things that people don't realize about Kenny Moore is that he didn't play WR exclusively in college and had a ways to go as a WR once he made it to the NFL.

He did have enough elusiveness to play RB on an overachieving BCS bound Wake Forest team, so the talent is definitely there. He is also an honest to goodness good guy, so I hope he makes the cut and contributes to this squad. The similarities between KM and Ricky Proehl run much deeper than collegiate ties- they are both hands guys that could fill in nicely in the slot.

Ultimately, I don't think more than 3 real WRs are going to be active on game days. So that leaves Smitty, DJ, Lafell, and Kenny Moore battling out for the 3 jerseys on game days. Obviously Smitty gets one jersey. That leaves DJ, Lafell, and Moore fighting for the two remaining positions.

I liked K. Moore a lot at Wake and was excited when we picked him up. Too bad we had Smith/Moose/Jarrett in front of him so that he barely got any playing time at all. All it takes is an amazing preseason game and he'll show the coaching staff what he's got. I can't wait for preseason to start.

You guys wanna bet on it? I'll wager my forum signature for the entire season that LaFell won't be the starter on Opening Day with 89. It might not be Moore, but it definitely won't be LaFell.

I am not discounting Lafell's blocking abilities, but KM is no slouch at blocking either.

I will take that bet. Its early on but you under value his blocking ability. Its gonna be Smith, LeFell, and Moore starting day as long as no injuries happens.

We are a run first team. People need not to forget that. Dwill and Jstew run this show. Fox is def not gonna get pass happy ether with a young QB.

Check out his stats from last preseason. He was by far the most productive WR in preseason last year and it wasn't even close.

I approve this message! He did well last year only to disappear in games and drop balls that hit him in the chest. Pre-season will tell us more about Moore.

He's been the star of CAMP. I never said that meant he was going to be a star come next month otherwise I wouldn't have compared him to Patrick Crayton.
