re: Thaddeus Moss in this offense could be SICK
He’s a good TE but nothing overly special. We need a TE so I wouldn’t be opposed to taking him in mid rounds.

He could be a Jimmy Graham-style threat


Stephen Sullivan would be more of a Jimmy comparison.

But even thats not even close.

Thadd is great, would love him in B&G, but their games aren't all that similar besides pass catching TE. Thadd had 4 TDs and I don't remember a jump ball threat (which might not be his fault).


Moss would be more shockey than jimmy. He does a great job finding the soft spot in zones and sitting. He’s also a VERY underrateD blocker. He plays low on his blocks and explodes, often dominating his man and setting the edge.

He has above average speed at the position and will run a 4.6 or so, and is a PITA to tackle. His hands are very good and he uses his body well to shield defenders from the ball. He catches the ball at the highest point, with his hands extended from his body.

His knock is that he is 6’3. That is big for a WR, but today’s dominant TEs are 6’5 and up. That doesn’t mean that Moss cannot he a good if not great TE in the NFL. Pairing him with cook in 2 TE sets with Murray in the backfield would be brutal for offenses. It would
Force teams into their base and the Saints could really exploit that. With someone like Kamara, teams may be forced to play nickel, which will take one more big hat out of the box, and Moss would devour light LBs and CB/S who attempt to shed blocks.

He’s a 3rd round guy who will make an impact on a fortunate team. I would love to see him in the dome on sundays.

He’s more in the mold of Dallas Clark, but not as big. He’s fast enough and really physical.

re: Thaddeus Moss in this offense could be SICK
Moss is a way better blocker. Mid late round pick. With that said I don’t fret too much on draft day. The saints almost always draft well. A few misses since 06 but we have drafted a lot of talent so I trust the front office to bring in the guys we need.
