Round 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft is exactly two weeks away and one of the few talented wide receivers who could see himself getting selected in the first round is Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore.

Over the course of three seasons, Moore wound up playing in 20 games with the Purdue Boilermakers. He ended his collegiate career with 178 receptions for 1,915 yards and 14 touchdowns.

As it stands, several mock drafts project Moore to be drafted towards the middle or end of the first round. With that being said, here's a look at three teams that are likely to select Moore later this month.

3. Tennessee Titans (No. 22)

Beyond A.J. Brown, the Tennessee Titans don't have many wide receiver threats on the roster. Josh Reynolds is the next best player at the position, which is why it makes sense for them to draft Moore. He'd instantly become a featured weapon for the Titans. While the team's offense runs through RB Derrick Henry, the team could use more help through the air. The Titans averaged just 224.2 passing yards per game in 2020 (23rd).

2. Indianapolis Colts (No. 21)

While the Indianapolis Colts have plenty of decent receivers on their depth chart, they're lacking a major playmaker. T.Y. Hilton isn't in his prime anymore and a lot of their younger pass-catchers have dealt with injuries in recent years. Assuming he stays healthy and can reach his potential, Moore would be a great pick for the Colts at No. 21. With Carson Wentz in town, the team's going to want to have a hot start to the 2021 season and Moore could help with that.

1. Baltimore Ravens (No. 27)

If any team could use help when it comes to wide receivers it's the Baltimore Ravens. No other team recorded fewer attempted passes (25.9) or receiving yards (171.9) per game than them in 2020. While their run game is great, it won't be useful if teams shut it down and don't have to worry about the aerial game. Moore would give LaMar Jackson another receiver that he could trust and flourish aside from Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins.
