Jets get Elijah Moore under contractJuly 21, 2021 | 06:40 PM
Jets signed second-round WR Elijah Moore to a four-year contract.
Analysis: Moore was viewed as a borderline first-rounder. He (5'9/178) was the focal point of Lane Kiffin's offense in 2020, leading the FBS in catches (10.8) and receiving yards (149.1) per game as a mismatch in space from the slot. He also broke A. J. Brown's school record for receptions in a season (86). While he was only used out wide on 147 (8.4%) career snaps, Moore's elite 4.35 forty, flat 4.0-second shuttle, and 91st percentile three-cone at 6.67 seconds suggests he's a pure athlete who can succeed anywhere on the field. He'll excel underneath on jet sweeps, screens, and slants until NFL coaches figure out how else to use him. The Jets will likely feature Moore in the slot or out wide opposite fellow newcomer Corey Davis. Jamison Crowder, Denzel Mims, and Keelan Cole are also in the wideout mix for the Jets.
