DeVonta Smith weighed in at 170 at the combine and he was a top 10 overall pick. Mooney was like 170ish too if I remember correctly. 163 isn't crazy small for a speed WR.
Smith was 175 and 6 feet. Mooney was one 176 and 5-10. That is a huge difference in size at the NFL level relative to 5-8 and 163.
Jameson Williams was only 179 last season and Jordan Addison is around 174 now. Not sure where Smith or Williams are now, but I'd imagine they've smartly put on weight that hasn't affected speed. I suspect that could be the same for Dell.
6-1 and 179 is a world of difference to 5-8 and 163. You can add good pounds easily to a 6-1 frame. Doing so to a 5-8 frame is harder.
