Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

Only two LSU tight ends have had their names called (both in the later rounds) since the Dallas Cowboys made David LaFleur the 22nd overall pick back in 1997.

Like LaFleur, Moreau was born and raised in Louisiana and opted to remain close to home despite the Tigers' focus on a power running game at the expense of its pass-catchers. The decision certainly won't be criticized by scouts, who will appreciate Moreau's unselfish play (especially his willingness to block) in an era in which many tight ends are essentially just overgrown receivers.

Scouts had better appreciate Moreau's tape because they won't have to spend much time with his statistics or all-conference accolades. He caught just seven passes over his first two seasons, despite playing in 23 games.

His "breakout" campaign came as a junior when he caught a career-high 24 passes for 278 yards and three scores. Moreau posted similar numbers as a senior (22-272-2), though flashes at the Senior Bowl and Combine suggest there could be more in store for this Louisiana-native in the NFL.

ANALYSIS

Powerful blocking specialist with limited production as a receiver. However, he impressive athleticism shown at the Senior Bowl and Combine (4.66-second 40-yard dash, 36 1/2-inch vertical) suggest this may be due to how he was used at LSU rather than his own limitations. Turned heads with the soft hands he demonstrated in Mobile as well as more attention paid to his route-running.

While possessing intriguing traits worthy of development, make no mistake that at this time Moreau remains a raw route-runner and pass-catcher. He certainly didn't play up to his timed speed or explosiveness (36.5" vertical) at LSU, struggling to make an impact as a receiver with just 52 grabs and five TDs for his career, showing limited awareness of defenders near him in coverage.
