Round 2, 34th Overall, NY Jets: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

After landing two top-10 talents on my big board on Day 1, the Jets turned around and landed a near-consensus first-round talent in Elijah Moore with the 34th overall pick.

Moore was considered one of the best wide receivers in a stacked class of receivers and he somehow fell to the Jets at the beginning of Round 2. Once again, the Jets knocked it out of the park with this pick.

Moore is an electric, dynamic offensive playmaker who projects as the Jets’ slot receiver of the future. And even if Jamison Crowder is still on the roster come Week 1, Moore should have no issues contributing in a variety of ways.

The only reason this grade is docked slightly is because I would have preferred Oklahoma State’s Teven Jenkins at this spot. But again, it’s hard to argue with landing a first-round talent at wide receiver in the second round.

Grade: A-
