Fourth Round

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. player. 138. 843. RB. Utah. Zack Moss

Damien Williams will remain the starter for the Kansas City Chiefs for at least one more season. After that, the waters get murky. Does Andy Reid hand the keys over to Darwin Thompson, who played sparingly as a rookie out of Utah State? Perhaps another running back from the state of Utah would make sense.

Zack Moss was phenomenal in his final season as a Ute, rushing for 1,416 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also emerged as a receiving threat, catching 28 passes for 388 yards and a pair of touchdowns. His profile is pretty much the exact opposite of Williams, which could make for a terrific one-two punch right out of the gate.

Moss is elite at absorbing contact and keeping his balance. Right when you think he’s going to go down, he recovers and keeps running. He doesn’t possess game-breaking speed or even great burst, but it doesn’t matter. He runs with conviction and is one of the toughest prospects in this year’s draft.

Projections for where Moss will go, much like any running back in this year’s class, are all over the place. Should he still be on the board when the Chiefs pick at 138 (which is far from a sure thing), they could not only add a playmaker to their 2020 offense, but they could solve the starting running back question for the next few years at the minimum.
