Ravens draft Cincinnati wide receiver Chris Moore in 4th round

The Ravens used the draft pick they received Friday from the Miami Dolphins to select Cincinnati wide receiver Chris Moore with their second fourth-round choice -- 107 overall -- on Saturday.

"I had a little bit of a good feeling about it," Moore said of the Ravens selecting him. "I know the style of their offense and the quarterback that they have that I would be a good fit for them. I met with their coaching staff at the combine. They were always in the back of my mind. I'm very excited to be a Raven".


The 6-foot-1, 206-pound Moore caught 40 passes for 870 yards for 21.8 yards per catch. He ranked him fourth among Football Bowl Subdivision wideouts in yards per catch.

Moore's breakout game came as a junior when he caught three passes – all of them for touchdowns – for 221 yards in a 50-28 loss to Ohio State.


"I'm a deep-threat receiver," he said. "I can take the top off of any defense."

At the scouting combine, Moore performed well in the 3-cone drill and broad jump. His 40-yard dash time, 4.53 seconds, isn't considered particularly fast for wide receivers, although Moore did show in-game speed for the Bearcats.

"My 40 [time] doesn't really show how fast I am. I think my game speed is a lot faster than what I did in the 40," Moore said. "I think when I'm on the field, I can run pass pretty much anybody. I showed it all year. And also, when the ball is in the air, I believe that it's mine. I have that feeling when the ball is in the air, I'm coming down with it, and that's it. That's how it has to go."
