4. Thad Moss, LSU, 6’2″, 250 pounds

The last name looks like an all-time NFL great and that is because this is the son of Randy Moss. However, while the name says one of the greatest athletes of our time, his son Thaddeus is built a bit differently.

Moss is shorter and thicker. He also does not have the same juice that his dad does. Of course, Moss is still athletic.

However, when many see his name they think of a seam stretcher, when in reality, Moss was a solid blocker, whether in the run or pass game.

He had strong hands and did not drop passes. However, he caught short passes near the line of scrimmage and never threatened after the catch.

The question with Moss is surprising to some, but there is legit concern whether he is athletic enough to hang in the NFL. He is not expected to be fast, but is he too slow? What about his vertical? He is shorter, he needs a strong vert.

This week is much bigger for Moss than the casual fan realizes. Fans should see how he performs before clamoring for a draft pick to be spent on him.
