Saints 2021 NFL Draft WR prospect: Elijah Moore – Mississippi

Elijah Moore is a junior at Ole Miss. He played 31 games over the course of three years in his collegiate career. For the amount of game he totaled, his stats truly speak for themselves with this potential Saints’ prospect.

This quick-hitting receiver out of the University of Mississippi has remarkably climbed draft boards over the course of the last couple of months, so much so that scouts now project Elijah Moore to be a late first-round or early second-round pick.

During his three seasons at Ole Miss, Moore reeled in 189 receptions for 2,441 yards and 16 touchdowns. Throughout his entire college career, Moore average 12.9 yards per reception with his highest single-season last year at 13.9 yards per reception.
