New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore is entering his second year in the National Football League. That fact has no bearing on the 22-year-old’s confidence, however. In a recent media session, he fired off a bold warning to NFL defenses.

“We’re all different,” Moore said, referencing fellow starting wideouts Corey Davis and rookie Garrett Wilson. “I just feel like there’s no way a team should be able to guard three of us, plus all the other guys that are coming along, too. So I feel like we’ve got a good group.”

The idea that no team should be able to guard the Jets’ wideouts is certainly a bold claim to make. However, it speaks to the confidence the 22-year-old has in those around him. Plus, Moore has a reason to be confident in his own game.

Moore started out slow in the NFL but quickly found his stride before an injury took him out of the remaining few games of the season. (He was shut down because of a quad injury and also had to deal with COVID-19 and concussion issues.) The Jets team website notes that isolating his production from games 7 to 12 put the Ole Miss product on pace for 96 catches. He also was on pace for 1301 receiving yards.

Of course, taking the slow start into account changes things. However, if Moore can regain that mid-season pre-injury form, he might be right in insinuating that the Jets’ receivers will be a problem in 2022.

Davis’ first season in New York didn’t go as planned. He played in just nine games in 2021 before undergoing core muscle surgery. Wilson was the Jets’ 10th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, a pick that started a small run on receivers.

Moore is confident that he will bounce back, and seems as motivated as ever to get back on the field.

“I feel like I’ve got so much to do, so much to accomplish,” Moore said.

“Really, it’s just understanding the offense inside and out. When you understand the offense, you’re going to ball. So get on the same page as Zach (Wilson), score a lot of touchdowns.”
