Elijah Moore was selected by the Jets with the No. 34 pick in the 2021 NFL draft. With one of the more underwhelming receiving corps in the league last season, New York has addressed that by signing Corey Davis in free agency and now by using a second-round pick on Moore.
Regardless of your past feelings regarding the Jets, the offense is undergoing a revitalization. After taking quarterback Zach Wilson with the second overall pick, the first-year coaching staff got him immediate help. Moore profiles as a weapon from the slot and joins Denzel Mims, the team’s 2020 second-round pick, and Davis in what the Jets are hoping is a revamped passing attack.
Of course, the guy at the top of that above chart, Jamison Crowder, already is a mainstay in the slot, but his salary could make him a cut candidate. With Breshad Perriman a departure in free agency, that means the top two receivers from 2020 could be gone.
