Future Watch: D.J. Moore Rookie Football Cards, Panthers – D.J. Moore was selected by the Carolina Panthers with the 24th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. This Philadelphia, PA native went to college at Maryland and made a name for himself.
He appeared in all 12 games as a freshman in 2015. He caught a pass in eight straight games and had three touchdowns.
In 2016, he started in 13 games, he led all receivers with 637 yards and six touchdowns. He averaged 15.5 per catch and his name was getting bigger.
2017 was his year. He had 80 catches for 1,033 yards. He had eight touchdowns in 12 games. Those 80 catches were the best in the history of the University. He was first team All-Big Ten, and the Big Ten Receiver of the Year. It was a season to remember in his draft year.
At the NFL Combine he led all wide receivers in the long jump plus he ran a 4.43, 40-yard dash and had the second best vertical. Those are the kinds of measurables that get you selected in the first round.
Here’s a look at Moore’s first camp with the Panthers:
Collectors can rarely get in on the ground floor of a potential star like this. Steve Smith was once the guy who hauled in Newton bombs and now Moore is expected to be that guy. He could be doing that deep into the playoffs and from there you never know what that could lead to.
