Elijah Moore is as explosive as they come. The New York Jets 2021 rookie quickly showed why he should be considered a potential NFL superstar

From the outset—training camp in the Summer of 2021—the Ole Miss product dazzled onlookers with his blend of athleticism and route-running smarts. And although the Moore selection took some Jets fans by surprise, he quickly showcased exactly why the depth chart desperately needed this type of player.

Joe Douglas understands that his depth chart needs weapons, but Moore gives him an incredible leg-up heading into 2022.

The only disappointment for Moore came in the availability department. The Jets’ exciting weapon played just 11 games, missing the Tennessee Titans game and the final five contests of the year via injury.

All told, Moore raked up 538 yards on 43 receptions for five touchdowns, to go along with a rushing touchdown and 54 yards on the ground.
