Oakland- The Raiders decided to add another threat to their offense by selecting tight end Foster Morea as their #135 pick.
Morea will be a great addition with the Raiders because he is very consistent with catching passes, can create mitch- match problems for defenders because of his quickness and he is a game changer. During his career at LSU, Morea racked up 52 receptions for 629 yards and six touchdowns. He became the 7th all-time tight end at LSU.
Before the pick was announced Jon Gruden called Morea and asked if he wanted to be a Raider and this was Morea’s response.“I’d love to be a Raider, coach,” Moreau replied.
Some critics did not like the Raiders’ pick and broke down why they felt like Morea needed more experience. “Moreau was underutilized as a pass catcher at LSU, but he showed an ability to cleanly snap routes and adjust to the football when targeted, although he appeared limited after the catch,” said Dane Brugler, NFL draft analyst for The Athletic. “While assignment sound as a blocker, he tends to lunge and has little margin of error. Overall, Moreau isn’t overpowering and appears indecisive at times as a receiver, but he is a functional positional blocker with the athleticism and ball skills to be a steady downfield option, projecting as a low-ceiling, high-floor backup “Y” tight end.”
