DJ Moore Already Has Glowing Things To Say About Caleb Williams

-

DJ Moore has played with several quarterbacks in his short career. All of them have disappointed in one way or another. He joined Cam Newton when the former MVP was already on a steep physical decline. Then it was Kyle Allen, Teddy Bridgewater, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, and Justin Fields. While the wide receiver managed to produce with all of those guys, he’s never seen a true star-level player at the position in his career. So, one can understand if he’d be skeptical of Caleb Williams coming out of college.

Surprisingly, it hasn’t taken the #1 overall pick long to win the receiver over. The two have found almost instant chemistry in practice, leading to some impressive connections against the starting defense. Moore admitted to Mully & Haugh on 670 The Score that Williams has looked good, but he’s more interested in seeing the rookie in pads at training camp next month. However, there is one thing that has stood out in a big way. His leadership, work ethic, and personality as a teammate are “amazing.”

DJ Moore understands his job with Williams.

It is to make life as easy as possible for the quarterback. That means getting open and making catches when the ball comes his way. Moore did exactly that for Fields last season and the former Bears QB had the best overall passing season of his career. Many believe Williams is a far superior passer. Having Moore, Keenan Allen, and Rome Odunze gives the rookie a chance to excel right out of the gate. One thing about the veteran receiver is he has an ability to adjust quickly. Once Fields was gone, he didn’t linger on it.

It feels like Williams’ success in 2024 comes down to health. No Bears quarterback has started a full season in the past 15 years. Chicago hopes he learns to protect himself by getting the ball out on time, relying on his playmakers to do the work. DJ Moore is at the head of that line. He is the most proven player on offense. Offensive coordinator Shane Waldron should have no issues scheming him open. All Williams has to do is get him the football. One can only hope things click.

I’d say CJ and Burrow are more like Marino in throwing style, upright and overhead consistently. Staubach too.

@PoochPest — You can add me to the many who believe “. .Williams is a far superior passer” when compared to Justin Fields — and to many other NFL QBs. Williams hasn’t thrown a pass yet in the NFL but in college games and on video (check some of his drills on the web) Caleb looks like a young, more athletic Aaron Rodgers. Don’t expect to see a Dan Marino-like posture in his dropback — but notice that Caleb’s release (from numerous arm-angles) is just as quick. Think of all those times that a Bears defender was closing on Rodgers,… Read more »

It is going to be a very interesting season, starting with the Hall of Fame game against Houston Aug 1st.

Our new HC has a package of plays where we are blocking the opponents. That’s gonna be a nice change.

I’m going to be honest, I’m disappointed DJ wasn’t wearing a Star Trek hoodie.
