Round 4, Pick 128

TE Foster Moreau


Foster Moreau, 6’5” 255lbs, was a big winner at the NFL Combine. Used primarily as a blocking tight end at LSU, Morano only has 46 receptions for 455 yards and 5 TDs over the past two seasons. These pedestrian receiving stats lead one to believe he’s not the most athletic and fairly one-dimensional.

That would be an incorrect assumption.

With the exception of the three-cone drill, Moreau finished in the top-5 of every top athletic drill in the Combine. His measurables combined with his strong performance at the Senior Bowl indicate his lack of production at LSU had more to do with the scheme and play-calling than it did with the player himself.

On the Dallas Cowboys he would be the perfect addition to Jason Witten, Dalton Schultz, and Blake Jarwin. He has the best blocking upside of the three (including pass-protection) and knows how to work back to the ball and use his frame in the way Jason Witten has made famous. Also like Witt, Moreau doesn’t show much run after the catch on film. Although, that may be because he’s rarely catching the ball in-stride and usually sitting in zone.

Moreau isn’t the flashy tight end everyone is looking for this year but he’s an instant contributor with TE1 potential, who can run routes, get separation, and be a force in the red zone (something the Cowboys desperately need).
