1. Elijah Moore, WR, NY Jets

No player has shined more during OTAs than second-round pick Elijah Moore.

The Jets fell in love with Moore during the pre-draft process and even planned to take him at 23 if they didn't trade up for Alijah Vera-Tucker.

Safe to say, they were both stunned and thrilled when he fell right into their laps at pick No. 34.

Moore's explosiveness and speed are unlike anything the Jets' offense has had in quite some time, and everyone from his teammates to his coaches to the media has taken notice.

As Connor Hughes of The Athletic puts it, "there are some over at One Jets Drive who require the occasional pinch in realizing Moore is theirs."

His most impressive play came early on Friday when Wilson fired a pass to Moore who beat Bryce Hall on a 10-yard in-route.

Moore made the catch in stride and created enough separation that no one was able to catch him. A simple 10-yard in-route taken to the house.

That's explosiveness. And that's an element the Jets have lacked on offense for a long, long time.

Moore is electric with the ball in his hands and is a legitimate threat to break any play for a touchdown. If his teammates on defense weren't already aware of that, they certainly are now.

Just ask Bryce Hall. The Jets couldn't be more excited about Elijah Moore.
