Zack Moss scouting report
Speed/Athleticism: Zack Moss has good speed, but his quickness and shiftiness is his best quality. Incredible burst, stemming from the absolute strength in his lower legs. He won’t be the most athletic running back in the class, but he has potential as a north/south runner and a physical power back.
Contact Balance: Moss has excellent contact balance. Very difficult to bring down, especially in the open field. A powerful lower frame makes it difficult for defenders to slow his momentum. Has excellent lower body power.
Receiving Ability: He’s a good receiver, but don’t ask him to run any complex routes. He can be utilized as a check-down option out of the backfield.
Blocking Ability: Zack Moss is a good blocker. While he needs to refine his blocking mechanics, Moss can be a very effective blocker to help secure the pocket. He doesn’t often miss assignments. Moss needs to be taught how to plant better so that he can use his lower body power to be more effective.
Field Vision/Football IQ: Moss possesses natural field vision and tends to just see the hole effortlessly. Maneuvers through traffic with ease. Shows an understanding of the offenses blocking schemes and recognizes defensive fronts.
Overall: There is a place in this league for Zack Moss who can be a very good running back. He will most likely be viewed as a rotational piece that can be used to gain positive chunks of yardage on inside zone plays. His lack of game-changing speed will be problematic, as he will probably run a low 4.5. I like him as an early to mid day three prospect, and I think he would benefit in a system much like the Houston Texans.
