NFL Draft stock evaluations on Elijah Moore, Royce Newman and Kenny Yeboah
ELIJAH MOORE | Wide Receiver
Josh Edwards Says: Moore is an example of why I think recruiting helps me so much covering the draft. I loved him coming out of St. Thomas Aquinas and thought he was probably a bit underrated at the time. He needed to develop his body to withstand the taxation of playing in the SEC and later in the NFL. With the league progressing into a style that reminds more of a 7-on-7 tournament than ground and pound football, Moore is coming into the league at the right time. I don’t think draft position is as important for him as landing in the right situation. If he lands with a progressive offensive mind that knows how to use him properly, he should have a big career. I currently project him as a Day 2 pick but he falls into a deep class of slot receivers, such as Rondale Moore, Shi Smith, D’Wayne Eskridge, Kadarius Toney and others.
