Elijah Moore To Prove Doubters Wrong ‘In Due Time’

Browns WR Elijah Moore thinks his career can take off in Cleveland after a difficult two years with the Jets.

The New York Jets drafted Elijah Moore in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Injuries hampered his rookie season although he still had 43 receptions for 538 yards and five touchdowns in 11 games. 

Things began to deteriorate in 2022, however. Despite playing 5 more games than 2021, Elijah Moore finished the season with only 446 yards and one score.

The Cleveland Browns saw sufficient potential in Moore to trade the 42nd overall pick in the 2023 draft for him. The 23 year old says feeling wanted motivates him to work hard.

“I can’t do anything but feel blessed to be in the opportunity that I’m in right this moment,” Moore said. 

“It feels good to be wanted, and it’s going to make any player, any human, go harder. When you feel like that and you feel like you’re around people who want you to be here, so I’m going to give it all I got every single day.

“I hold myself to be a positive person,” Moore added. 

“Obstacles come just like how I handled last year, and I feel like it only put me in a better position to go through life, let alone football now. So, from this point on, I’m looking to be a better human being, a better football player, better brother, mother, whatever it is, because that just didn’t affect — I love football. That season didn’t just affect football. It affected my life, whether it was good and bad. So, I got to learn from it.”

“Social media is going to do its thing. Media is going to do its thing,” Moore said. 

“The people in the building know who I am and what I stand for and what I do when I go home and how I am. So, I can’t really live for trying to prove myself to everybody else. And I’m still learning that. Of course, I would want everyone to see how much time I put into it, how much I love football, how much I watch highlights this, that, and the third, you know what I’m saying? But they are going to see it in due time.”
