With the signing of second round pick Skyy Moore, the Kansas City Chiefs now have their entire 2022 NFL Draft class locked up.
And then there were none.
If we’re to judge an Instagram post from wide receiver Skyy Moore correctly, then the Kansas City Chiefs apparently have their entire 2022 NFL Draft class under contract with the signing of Moore, the team’s second round pick out of Western Michigan.
Compared to years past in the NFL, when the summer season was rife with contractual drama about which rookies would sign with which teams and under what terms, the subject of rookie signings these days is largely much ado about nothing. The Chiefs came to terms with their first seven draft picks within days of selecting them in the draft, and until this week, only Moore and fourth-round cornerback Joshua Williams remained unsigned.
That said, there were specific wrinkles with prospects drafted in the second and fourth rounds this year that led to the majority of players taken in those rounds remaining unsigned. Earlier this week, Mike Garafolo reported that the Houston Texans had a specific pick more money than the slotted rookie deal called for and other agents were reportedly demanding the same.
Moore was the team’s first of two second-round picks and their only offensive player taken in the first three rounds. A talented wideout with tremendous separation skills, Moore should be a valuable addition to the wide receiving corps for the next several seasons in K.C., especially in the wake of Tyreek Hill’s absence.
Last season for the Western Michigan Broncos, Moore had 95 catches for 1,292 receiving yards, and 10 touchdowns. He had 171 receptions for 2,82 yards and 16 scores in his three-year career.
