I'll have to go back & look, but I believe those were double moves.
I don't think it's a negative, I think it's a good thing. Players come into the league with nothing but talent. The guys who last, who play well into their twilight years, it's because they've adapted & got smarter.
Heins Ward, Jerry Rice, & Rod Smith come to mind. Even Rod Smith the CB/Safety, they got better with age when their physical talents wavered, because they got smarter & won the mental aspect of the game.
Randy Moss is the only guy I can think of who played a long time because of his physical talents at WR...... but he was a freak from day one.
