Biography: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting career numbers of 30/387/4. Junior totals included 13/144/1.
Positives: Natural pass catching tight end with reliable hands. Fluid releasing off the line into routes, shows quickness into breaks, and gets separation from opponents. Extends in a crowd to make the difficult reception, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Consistently catches the ball away from his frame and looks the pass into his hands. Good movement skills and fluid in every direction of the field. Bends his knees, plays with good leverage, and quickly gets into blocks.
Negatives: Lacks bulk, functional football strength and rarely gets movement as a blocker. Does not display the speed to be a true downfield threat.
Analysis: After struggling with injuries the prior two seasons, Moeaki elevated his game last season and his draft stock is on the rise. He may never be a true number one tight end yet could play in a system that constantly puts him in motion before the snap of the ball.
