Elijah Moore Bio

Elijah Moore is a wide receiver for the New York Jets and was drafted with the 34th overall pick in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Born in Sunrise, Florida, Moore played at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, and caught 28 passes for 407 yards and five touchdowns as a senior and was named as an Under Armour All-American. Moore was a four-star recruit who originally committed to Georgia, but flipped to Ole Miss late in his senior year of high school. During his time at Ole Miss, Moore commanded a 99th-percentile college Target Share (36.7%) and a College Dominator Rating of 41.9-percent (86th-percentile). His 4.40 40-time is good for a 92nd-percentile at his position. He also boasts a 97th-percentile Agility Score of 10.67. Moore was a consensus All-American at Ole Miss in 2020, as well as First Team All-SEC.

As an NFL rookie, Moore entered the 2021 season with loads of promise. Naturally, he had some adjusting to do as he made the leap from the SEC to the NFL, but he finished his rookie campaign with 43 receptions for 538 yards and five touchdowns, averaging 76.5 receiving yards per game from Weeks 8 to 13.

Moore’s suffered a concussion suffered in Week 3 of that rookie season and suffered a quad strain in Week 13, finishing the season with just 11 games played. His per-game totals stretched over a 17-game season would have painted a much better picture for the Jets rookie. He was pacing for 66-831-8, which would have given him the fourth most receiving yards for rookie wide receivers. He ranked No. 50 in total Air Yards with 831, and had six drops while seeing 24 deep balls.

Moore finished his rookie season with 59.9 (No. 36) Best Ball Points Added. He also ranked No. 31 in Target Rate (18.6-percent) and No. 23 in Hog Rate (16.2-percent), making him one of the most heavily targeted wide receivers in the league on a per-snap basis.

Heading into the 2022 season, Moore’s success hinged heavily on second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, who the Jets selected No. 2 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. Those excited about Moore’s potential next season will likely drive his ADP up in drafts. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him turn into a great value or bust depending on how the Jets and Wilson improve in year two.
