When the Tennessee Titans meet with a player once, it doesn’t mean as much as the media may portray. But when they meet with a player multiple times, it has to mean something, right?
Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore is a popular prospect within the Titans community. It seems that may also be the case inside the Titans war room as they’ve met with Moore on multiple occasions.

Moore is a talented prospect, no doubt. His explosiveness and speed would give the Titans the field-stretching wideout they’ve been looking at getting.
Moore looked incredible in his games last season and has the stats to back it up. He had 1,193 yards receiving with eight touchdowns. Those are both highs for him with Ole Miss.
With A.J. Brown’s ability to get separation and yards after the catch as the true WR1, the Titans need a compliment to him on the other side in strength, size, and most importantly, speed. An upgraded Corey Davis, if you will.
Moore’s speed certainly fits the bill. He ran a 4.35 forty-time during his pro day. But his size, coming in at 5’9″ and 178 pounds, makes him more of a slot guy in the NFL world.
If the Titans didn’t sign Josh Reynolds, Moore would be a great pick to be the new slot receiver. Yet, they need another guy on the outside, and Moore’s size may prevent him from being that in the NFL.
The Titans could move the 6’3″-tall Reynolds to the outside, but then they would have to bank on him taking that next step in his career, which is possible, but risky.
We know A.J. Brown wants Moore, though. Once A.J. Brown advocated for the Tennessee Titans to draft his former teammate, Moore became a popular prospect among the Titans fanbase.

With other needs on the roster, we will see who is available at 22 when the Tennessee Titans are on the clock. I am willing to bet some better prospects than Moore will be up for grabs.
But, if the Titans select Moore, it will be fun to watch his speed and versatility on the offense. Maybe he will be able to overcome the size difference and become a vital weapon in the offense.
