The Jets made a number of changes to their wide receiver room this offseason, most notably with the signing of Corey Davis and drafting of Elijah Moore with the 34th overall pick in April.

As the two get accustomed to their new surroundings, Moore said the two have been building their relationship as well, and that he sees that Davis has a lot to prove this season.

"As soon as Corey got here we chopped it up," Moore said after OTAs on Friday. "I know he's a great player, he went like five overall a couple years ago, so I already know what type of timing is on his mental. I just know he wants to be ready and show people everything that he didn't get the opportunity to show at the other place. I feel real confident that I have him on my team. It's definitely a blessing."

While Davis has already played four seasons in the NFL, Moore is just getting started, and it can take some time to adjust.

But the rookie has started showing flashes and the chemistry with Zach Wilson is building.

"It's just like anything: the more you work at it, the more comfortable you get," Moore said. "We're just out there repping it and the more days that I go out there, the more comfortable I'm getting running the routes, adjusting to the schemes, reading the defenses. So every day I'm just really trying to craft, you know I'm trying to get better, focus on that one thing and put my best foot forward."

The Davis-Moore pairing could become a lethal one if the two pan out the way the Jets envision they will, and then there's still Jamison Crowder, Denzel Mims and Keelan Cole out there rounding out the group.
