1. Rondale Moore

This is less about Storm Norton and more about the fact that Kaleb McGary is in front of him. When forced into action last season Norton was solid and didn't make any of the horrifying pass protection gaffes McGary so often has. Atlanta has to protect a very quarterback returning from a season-ending injury if McGary doesn't quickly improve a change wouldn't be at all surprising despite the contract situation.

However, the closer you look at Moore's career and consider his fit in this offense the better the trade looks. Zac Robinson is going to feed his stars the football but there are still opportunities in this offense. Looking at the career of Kirk Cousins there is often a tendency to find chemistry with one of his depth/speed receivers and consistently look to that player in big spots.

Moore can be that player in Robinson's offense with a better quarterback and stability around him. As of now, Moore is the third receiver on the roster with Drake London and Darnell Mooney clearly ahead of him. This is the role that Moore is best suited for and will give him a chance to thrive with this offense. Keep a close eye on Moore early on this season.
