Here’s one of those faster guys that you Philadelphia Eagles fans love.

Former Ole Miss standout Elijah Moore isn’t as tall as Jhamon Ausbon, Dyami Brown, or Tamorrion Terry. They all stand at about six-foot-two, six-foot, and six-foot-four respectively, but the five-foot-nine Moore does look like one of those sub-4.5 guys. We all know how the Eagles love hearing that!

Well, if we’re being fair, Brown is also a sub-4.5-second guy, but we’re going somewhere here. Just hold tight, and bear with us.

If you need a size comparison, Moore is three inches taller and about 19 pounds lighter than Boston Scott. Yeah, he’s a small guy, so the slot position might be where he thrives at the next level. Still, the SEC is the NCAA’s best football conference, and week after week, Moore showed up and showed off versus college football’s best defenses.

After 31 games as a member of the Rebels, Moore had hauled in 189 catches for 2,441 yards and 16 trips to the end zone. That has to count for something if you’re looking to add a burner after Round 2. We’ll have to wait and see if the Birds show any interest.
