J’Mon Moore, WR, Missouri Tigers
One of the unfortunate realities from Mizzou’s forgettable 2016 season is that most fans probably won’t appreciate the dominant season put together by receiver J’Mon Moore. Moore became one of just four MU receivers to pass the 1,000-yard mark since Jeremy Maclin’s departure following the 2008 season. With 1,012 receiving yards, Moore joined Danario Alexander, T.J. Moe, and Bud Sasser as wideouts who have managed to achieve that feat.
Moore also had nine total touchdowns from scrimmage, the fifth-most by a Mizzou receiver over that period. Those feats are all the more impressive considering that Moore had a five-game stretch during the middle of the season where he was extremely quiet, scoring no touchdowns while accumulating yardage totals of 16, 15, 74, 12, and 54, respectively. Moore had over 100 receiving yards in six of the Tigers’ 12 games and had three multi-touchdown games over the course of the season.
Moore, who has led the Tigers in receiving yardage for two straight seasons, has a chance to become the next in a long line of Mizzou receivers who have gone on to have NFL careers if he can remain successful next year during his senior campaign.
