SDSU’s Moss now waits for NFL call


he Jackrabbits’ basketball-standout-turned-football-star has put all of his work in and now waits for the NFL Draft this weekend, April 27-29, in New York City. Moss will stay close to his phone this week to see if he’s among the 253 picks that will be called during the three-day event.

“Honestly, I’m excited. It’s out of my control, so I’m really not stressing about it. I’m ready for this week to be done so that I know where I’m going to be at,” he said.

If you’re watching specifically for Moss, Saturday will be your time to tune in when rounds 4-7 are selected amongst the 32 league teams. The six-foot-four target remains confident that he’ll be picked — he visited with the Cincinnati Bengals last week.

He is ranked 250th among prospects on and a seventh-round pick on their website. Sports Illustrated has him ranked as a fifth or sixth-round pick and lists the New Orleans Saints as a potential landing place in addition to the Bengals.

Moss said that his route work — the aspect that he said he needed the most work on in February — is where he needs it to be and that his agent, Scott Smith, is confident that he’ll be picked this weekend. Moss said that the posting of his pro day and making the dunk video that is making the rounds on the internet have only helped increase his overall profile. Like all draft hopefuls say, it only takes one team to like you.

“Just the difference that a year makes,” Moss said after the spring game, talking with his former teammates. “I was just thinking about how far I’ve come between last summer and the preseason and it’s just been a process. To get drafted would mean a lot.”
