6. WR Elijah Moore, Ole Miss
Another Moore, another wide receiver, and another option available on day two that fits Chicago’s offense perfectly. Elijah Moore slipped through the cracks after seeing five wide receivers get drafted in round one.
Now available on day two, whoever drafts Moore will be getting an experienced player who’s played both inside and outside. Moore has shown that despite being just 5-foot-9, durability and toughness aren’t a concern.
Moore should be labeled as a player who’s a big-play threat anytime that he touches the football. This was evident during his time at Ole Miss, where he tore up SEC defenses for 189 receptions for 2441 receiving yards, and 16 touchdowns. He had also had a small impact in the running game, with 21 rushing attempts for 71 yards, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry.
As a player who might not have garnered the attention that other top wide receiver prospects did, Moore should be available when the Bears pick at 52nd overall. At that point, he should be a no-brainer pick for Chicago, who will look to add some wide receivers at some point in the NFL Draft.
