One of the top wide receivers of all time had a very nice thing to say about former Maryland wide receiver DJ Moore, who was drafted by the Carolina Panthers with the No. 24 pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Smith, who played with the Panthers for 13 years, said that nobody could replace him in Carolina, until now.

“The Panthers haven’t been able to replace me, until today,” Smith as conveyed by the Maryland Football Twitter account. “DJ Moore will be a Panther for a long, long time!”
Now, to fully replace Smith, Moore will have to do something like those 13 years along with three more in the league (with the Baltimore Ravens) and haul in 1,748 catches for 14,71 yards and 81 touchdowns.
If Moore can get anywhere close to that type of (likely Hall-of-Fame) production, he should do just fine.
He’ll also have a Terrapins alum to guide him, as he’ll join Torrey Smith with the Panthers and the elder wide receiver already OK’d Moore as a roommate for next season.
