Washington Redskins: Thaddeus Moss, Tight End, LSU
Thad Moss is the son of Hall of Famer Randy Moss, so the football genetics run in the family. Moss, the UDFA, took advantage of playing on college football’s biggest stage last season. In the College Football Playoff, Moss accrued 135 yards on nine catches for three touchdowns in the two-game stretch.
The tight end actually started his career at NC State before transferring to LSU in 2017. In his lone season for the Wolfpack, Moss corralled 6 catches for 49 yards and a touchdown while appearing in only five games. His season was shortened due to a shoulder injury that he suffered.
Injuries may have been a crucial part of why Moss wasn’t drafted. He would have been a second or third-day draft pick if it wasn’t for a fracture in his foot. Moss has a boatload of potential. Not only does he have great hands, like his dad, but he is also a very good blocker for a tight end.
Meanwhile, the Redskins lost their two starting tight ends. Longtime Redskin Jordan Reed was released by the team because of injury history. And Vernon Davis retired after a 14-year career. Moss could end up starting for the Redskins by the end of the season, or even the end of the preseason. He is a talented player who could make a major impact for the team at a major position of need.
