Here’s a great prospect Philadelphia Eagles fans don’t discuss enough.

Former Rebel Elijah Moore is listed as five-foot-nine, but his game film erases his lack of height off of the board as one of the concerns. He plays with physicality, and he has the speed to create separation.

His route running is filled with tons of head fakes and jabs, and he constantly keeps defenders on their toes. The manner in which Moore runs his routes and gets off the line of scrimmage is truly a treat to watch. Kadarius Toney may turn defenders around with the ball, but Moore can make them look silly without the ball.

While Moore’s height suggests that he should be a slot receiver, he is also capable of becoming an effective outside receiver. Ole Miss has produced some quality NFL receivers over the course of the past few years, and Elijah Moore should add to that list with relative ease.
