High flyer: Rondale Moore shows off athleticism with impressive vertical jump
Nobody who ever watched Rondale Moore move on a football field with the ball in his hands ever questioned or doubted his athleticism. During his short time at Purdue, the wide receiver was undoubtedly one of the most electrifying players on the gridiron.
After spending three years with the Boilermakers, Moore declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, passing on one more season in West Lafayette to begin pursuing his career at the next level. It appears his training for the upcoming draft is going pretty well.
A recent video shared on social media shows Moore is still as athletic as ever, hitting a 42-inch vertical jump during a training session. Watching the clip, it appears as if the 5-foot-9 receiver is hanging in the air forever to hit the bar:

That should help Moore’s stock for the upcoming draft.
Moore burst onto the college football scene in 2018 as a true freshman with the Boilermakers. In his first game, the receiver totaled 313 all-purpose yards, a new school record. He finished the game against Northwestern with 125 yards in kickoff returns, 109 receiving yards and 79 rushing yards and scored 2 touchdowns.
At the end of the 2018 season, Moore was named an All-American after leading the B1G with 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns on 114 receptions. But the rest of the receiver’s career was hindered by injuries, playing in just 7 more games in 2019 and 2020 and totaling just 657 yards and 2 touchdowns as a receiver.
Moore’s athleticism will still be a hot commodity in the NFL Draft and many teams will love his versatility. It doesn’t hurt that he can jump out of the gym, either.
