Thaddeus Moss, LSU
The son of Hall-Of-Fame WR and former Patriot Randy Moss, greatness is in the blood of LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss. He stands at about 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds. He has a very solid build at the position and has pretty good athleticism and agility.
In 2019, he would tally 47 catches, 570 yards, and 4 touchdowns for a championship LSU Tigers squad that was loaded on the offensive side of the ball. The one knock about him would be his blocking, which is something that he could improve on. But as it stands now, he could be a very good receiving tight end.
He is seen by scouts as a second-to-fourth round pick, the New England Patriots could definitely snag him up to bolster a tight end room that needs fresh talent.
Cole Kmet, Notre Dame
Cole Kmet, in the eyes of many, is the most “NFL-ready” tight end in this year’s draft. At 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, he has great size for the position. He can be effective lined up out wide, next to the offensive line, or even in the slot. Along with solid route-running, he can be a starter on day one.
In 2019, his junior season, his totals were 43 catches, 515 yards, and 6 touchdowns, compared to his sophomore season in which he only had 15 catches for 162 yards.
He is projected as a second-to-third round draft choice.
