Yes, Philadelphia Eagles fans, Elijah Moore is even smaller than Smith is.

Is anyone else noticing a trend with some of these SEC receivers? As much as we all love both the NFL and NCAA’s version of football, there’s something about both games that you’ve probably figured out already.

While the NFL is about scheme and strategy, the teams with the best and more athletic horses win at the collegiate level. That’s why the Alabama Crimson Tide is always in the conversation.

Bama has had its issues with the rival Rebels from time to time because regardless of what type of product they put on the field sometimes, Ole Miss knows how to seek out and sign some of the best talents at the prep level.

Elijah Moore was named an Under Armour All-American as a senior in high school and committed to the Georgia Bulldogs but he changed his mind and decided to join Ole Miss. In 31 career games, he hauled in 189 passes for 2,441 yards and found his way to the endzone 16 times. Yeah, he’s small, but that’s the game now, sort of. Teams like guys who can operate in space, and Moore is definitely that. Expect Moore to come off of draft boards late on Day 2 or sometime during Day 3.
