The son of NFL Hall of Fame receiver Randy Moss, Thaddeus is no stranger to the biggest stages. In 2019, Moss was an integral pass-catching threat for the national-champion LSU Tigers.
However, Moss is also in a difficult position heading in to the draft. It was revealed at the NFL Combine that he needed surgery, which was completed in late February. However, with COVID-19 wiping out travel to teams and many pro days, it will be difficult to get an accurate read on Moss’ health.
As such, the Bills get a chance to nab their backup tight end in the fifth round. If healthy, this is a steal – and Josh Allen will be very grateful.
In 2017, most in the league saw Adams as a first-round talent who would anchor an offensive line for a decade. Unfortunately, a torn ACL and a back surgery later, and Adams is working to stay healthy as he pursues a career in the NFL.
The talent is there. As a sophomore in 2017 he was an All-Pac-12 selection. Someone is going to take a late-round flyer on his murky medicals.
This might be too low for Adams – but people with worrisome medicals are the most impacted in this draft by the novel coronavirus. He also struggled mightily at the Combine, pushing his stock down further.
Even with the addition of Diggs, the Bills could still use some depth at receiver. Cole Beasley projects as the slot receiver, and he was hardly effective in 2019. Proche might not overtake that role in 2020 – but he does provide some depth for Buffalo.
Proche is pretty average, but where he really excels is with his hands. They function almost like magnets and they will definitely give him a chance to make a roster come summer.
Allen is entrenched as the starter, but it’s always good to take a quarterback in the late rounds, develop him and see if he’s worth a backup role, or even a good piece of trade bait.
