Zack Moss

Zack Moss is a 5-foot-10, 222 pound running back out of the University of Utah.

Over his four years at Utah, Moss surpassed the 1,000-yard mark in each of his final three seasons in Salt Lake City, including 1,416 yards on 235 carries and 15 touchdowns as a senior.

Moss also found some success as an on-again, off-again receiver coming out of the backfield, catching 29 balls as a sophomore for 243 yards and 28 balls as a senior for 388 yards.

While he has size and power to finish off goal line possessions, Moss is also capable of busting loose for huge chunks of yards in the open field.

Moss was also named the 2019 Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year, despite playing alongside sure-fire first-round picks like Oregon‘s Justin Herbert and Utah State’s Jordan Love. Why? Because was a very productive player at Utah.

At the 2020 NFL Combine, Moss ran a 4.65 40, recorded 19 reps on the bench press, and performed a 33-inch vertical jump. While none of these numbers are particularly impressive on their own, together, they highlight a well-rounded power rusher with starter-upside.

Whether tasked with handling a heavy workload or utilized as a change-of-pace power rusher Moss is a solid fit in Doug Pederson‘s offense alongside Sanders and Boston Scott.
