For Comparison Sake, Kashif Moore And…DeSean Jackson?

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , , Date:

Some good re: Ed Wasielewski, Kashif’s agent, the Rocky Hill native now based in Philly also represents Marcus Easley and Robert McClain…..

Former UConn WR/RET Kashif Moore (Burlington, NJ) visited the Eagles facility recently for the local pro day Wedn 4/4. I pulled some #s from his Combine and Eagles WR/RET DeSean Jackson’s Combine & pro day a few years ago…

Interestingly enough, Kashif Moore bested or equaled DeSean Jackson in 5 of 6 NFL Combine categories below.  DeSean had a slightly better 40 time- 4.42 vs. 4.35- even though Kashif outweighs DeSean by 11 lbs…

Production at the college level is another story, but apples to apples, Kashif & DeSean were/are both pretty elite athletes when they entered the league…
NFL Combine & Pro Day results:

  • Height: DeSean 5096 & Kashif 5091 … DeSean is 5/8 of an inch taller than Kashif

 

  • Weight: DeSean 169 & Kashif 180 … Kashif is 11 lbs heavier than DeSean

 

  • 40 Dash: DeSean 4.35 & Kashif 4.42 (combine) … DeSean ran .07 faster than Kashif … both ran at NFL Combine

 

  • Vertical Jump: DeSean 34.5″ (pro day) & Kashif 43.5″ (combine) … Kashif jumped 11 inches higher than DeSean

 

  • Broad Jump: DeSean 10’2 (pro day) & Kashif 10’6 (combine) … Kashif jumped 4 inches further than DeSean

 

  • 3-Cone: DeSean 6.82 (pro day) & Kashif 6.82 (combine) … same time … Kashif did his 3-cone at NFL Combine

 

  • Shuttle: DeSean 4.19 (pro day) & Kashif 4.05 (combine) … Kashif had better shuttle by .14 second and did it at NFL Combine

 

  • Bench Reps: DeSean- he didn’t participate (225lbs) & Kashif- 19 reps (225lbs)

    Interesting side by side comparison of the two. Kashif seems a bit more physically durbale than DeSean has shown with his size. DeSean may have been more electrifying in college and did it in the Pac-12, but this makes me wonder what Kashif’s numbers would have been if the QB play at Uconn had been able to get the ball to him more consistently.

    Whose idea was it to post this? Kashif is nowhere near the player DeSean is. DeSean would have gone in the first round, but he slipped because of his size/attitude. DeSean has very sure hands which is the opposite of Kashif…all those numbers are great but they mean nothing if you can’t hang on to the ball. They also mean nothing in game. A lot changes when the whistle blows…and DeSean has game. I’m from the Philly area and I get to watch DeSean on a weekly basis. Granted he had a down year, but that was a product of the organization. Sorry to rant…but the idea of comparing DeSean and Kashif is insane. Kashif seems like a great guy and a solid player but come on…

    Nice numbers but there is no comparison. Jackson is an electrifying NFL receiver and was in college as well. Kashif, not so much.
