Former Cincinnati Bearcats wide receiver Chris Moore was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round of the NFL Draft

Former Cincinnati Bearcats wide receiver Chris Moore was selected early Saturday afternoon in the fourth round with pick No. 107 by the Baltimore Ravens. Moore is the Bearcats All-Time leader in receiving touchdowns.

The Cincinnati Bearcats have been known for their high-powered offenses under Tommy Tuberville. Saturday afternoon, Chris Moore became the second Bearcat taken in the fourth round as his teammate Parker Ehinger was selected just two picks ahead of Moore. Moore was taken by the Baltimore Ravens with the ninth pick of the fourth round and 107th overall.

Moore is a Tampa, Florida native he hold the Bearcats All-Time record for receiving touchdowns. During the 2015 season he had 40 receptions, 870 yards, and 7 touchdowns with an average per catch of 21.8 yards. Throughout his playing career he was known for his ability for the big play, I’m pretty sure he would’ve had over one thousand receiving yards if it wasn’t for an ankle injury that knocked him out for a game and a half.

For his career Moore had 119 receptions, 2301 yards, 26 touchdowns and a 19.3 yards per catch average.

The Ravens are desperate for some big play receivers and Moore should get a lot of opportunities to show his worth. I’m pretty sure he will have a chip on his shoulder after seeing a lot of experts had have as a second round pick. The only thing that sucks for Moore is a lot of Bearcats fans or Cincinnati Bengals fans so we he rolls to Paul Brown this season the same people that used to cheer for him might be booing him on a consistent basis.

Per Cincinnati.com

"Hopefully my Bearcats fans don’t hate me now, trying to score a touchdown now against the Bengals. It's going to be a nice little homecoming."

UC coach Tommy Tuberville said he was pleased to see the Bearcats break their draft drought.

"It helps your recruiting and gives you some publicity, but mainly I'm just proud for the players," Tuberville said. "Both Parker and Chris obviously earned what they got. I think both of them will be excellent NFL players because of their work ethic, and they've got excellent skills."
