O'Fallon Native T.J. Moe Takes on NFL Combine
The former Fort Zumwalt West Jaguar is hoping to make it to the NFL.
Moe has spent the past 4 seasons as a key player for the Mizzou Tigers, where, this past season, he caught 40 passes for 399 yards and one touchdown. In his 4 years at Mizzou, Moe was just 12 catches shy of the 200 mark. He had 2101 yards and 11 touchdowns.
On the Columbia Daily Tribune, Moe has been keeping an inline diary of his preparations for the NFL:
On New Year's Day, my dad and I made the 17-hour drive from my hometown of O'Fallon to Naples, Fla., where I have spent most of the last six weeks. I'm training with a group of 15 guys from across the country. When I first arrived, I was feeling a little apprehensive about being in a new environment, but this group bonded very quickly and made the transition seamless.
NFL.com has this assessment of Moe:
Moe is a tough, gritty wide receiver. He's built to play the slot receiver position, due to his compact build, toughness, and physicality. While he will likely never be a standout player, it's tough to imagine that he won't fight himself onto a roster.
The NFL Scouting Combine is a yearly event for coaches and general managers to assess college players who are eligible for the NFL Draft, which will be held April 25th to April 27th at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
