    I have never been a very big fan of him. But I was just think how fast our offense would be after adding him and bush. We would easily have the fastest offense in the league. AJ, JMathis, Moss, Bush would be pretty fun to watch. What are some of your thoughts on him.

    with the Cowboys picking up T.O this could help bump him down to the Texans, should they want him, with the 33rd overall selection :)

    I believe this would set Carr up with the weapons he finally needs to manufacture an explosive offense both on the ground and in the air

    I actually think one of the three Receivers will fall. I'm actually homing someone that needs a receiver picks up either Burleson or Moulds when he is released, thus free up either one or two of the receivers. If moss or Chad Jackson for that matter falls to the Second, I would pick either up.

    Please don't draft him, you've made so many good moves this offseason, don't ruin it.

    I actually doubt that Jackson or Moss will fall to the 2nd round. I think some team will pick up Moss in the 1st because of how well Steve Smith did last year, and hoping that he will be the same kind of player.

    I would stay away from Chad Jackson just for the fact that Florida WR's scare me. If Jackson were to fall to the 2nd Casserly might get some deja vu because Gaffney unexpectedly fell to the 2nd during the Texans first draft.

    Is he worth a 2nd rounder? He barely cracked 1000 yards for his career, and only had 9 touchdowns.

    I'm coming around to this way of thinking myself ... one analogy I read about the WR position makes sense to me ....

    consider a WR like a car ... let someone else get it new and break it in .... you pick it up after 2 -3 years and miss the "learning curve" v. "depreciation" costs .... the problem is that it's easy to find a used car than a young WR in trade or free agency ...

    Not sure in that I haven't seen enough of his tape or really heard anything of substance from a reliable source. My understanding is that he is a flat-out burner and thus I have to think he is worth the look, but from what I hear, I doubt he will make it to us in the 2nd.

    There's barely any tape to look at on Moss, he was never a playmaker, and never stood out during his entire college career.

    He's fast, but other than that, he hasn't shown much.

    Darrell Jackson is a good Florida WR.

    Reche Caldwell WR - 2nd round
    Ike Hilliard WR - 1st round
    Darrell Jackson WR - 3rd round
    Taylor Jacobs WR - 2nd round
    Travis Taylor WR - 1st round
    Jabar Gaffney WR - 2nd round

    Jackson is the lone good one. The funny thing about Jackson is he was drafted later then all of the other Florida WR disappointments.

    I believe Sinorice Moss will be a great #2 WR & will be there at #33. He falls because this high in the draft teams are looking for a #1 WR which he is not because he lacks size but the Texans already have a #1 in Andre Johnson. Moss is a playmaker, with break away speed that is a excellent route runner & Hurricane he will eliminate the double teams & create mis-matches.

    He also has his brother Santana Moss who has proven what speed can do despite lacking ideal size. While I'm not going to say he is as good as his brother (who was selected 16th overall in 2001) he does have the pedicree.

    here is an old scouting report circa 2001 on Santana Moss-University of Miami Hurricanes. Height: 5:09.5. Weight: 181. Hometown: Miami, Florida

    Hard worker who simply loves the game...Has a small, but well-defined body with outstanding stop-&-go action...Flashes tremendous quickness off the line, maintaining balance and body control in and out of his breaks...Plays at a solid low pad level that allows him to easily uncover from defenders in the open...Extends his arms and snatches the ball with his hands... Excels at working back to the ball, showing fearlessness going up for the pass in traffic...Exciting game-breaker on returns, moving effortlessly past defenders, but also displaying tremendous acceleration to avoid being tackled...One of the best in the game at tracking the ball in flight... Has that great leg drive needed to break tackles near the line and despite his size, shows power, determination and a solid hand punch to disengage from the press coverage...Extremely effective on crossing patterns, separating from his defender in an instant...Very flexible in his adjustments turning on the ball...Gives a good blocking effort upfield in run support...One of the best “high flyers” in the game, possessing a 42-inch vertical jump.

    Sinorice Moss WR 5'8 183 Miami NFL Combine Stats: 40-yard dash - 4.38 42" vertical

    Sinorice is no longer just Santana's little brother anymore; he is a bonafide NFL talent himself. After backing up for his first two seasons, he became a part time starter as a junior, catching 20 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns. He emerged this season as a true playmaker, hauling in 37 balls for 614 yards and six touchdowns.

    There may not be a bigger playmaker at wide receiver in this years draft. Sinorice is electric with the ball in his hands. He has outstanding quickness and elusiveness, and the speed to outrun defenders. Even though he does not have a lot of experience on special teams, his talents could make him an excellent return man.

    Just like his brother, he lacks great size. Sinorice is even smaller though. At just under 5'8, he simply does not provide the size to be a go to target at the next level. He may be relegated to slot duty. His talent suggests he could be a great returner, but he lacks the experience at that spot due to the return ability of Devin Hester.

    Moss did not make much of an impact his first three seasons in Miami, but he had a solid senior campaign. It would have been better had he not played through Kyle Wrights first year as a starter, which had its ups and downs. Moss showed in the Senior Bowl that his speed and quickness is a step above, hauling in MVP honors during the game. In a weak wide receiver class, Moss's lack of size may be overlooked a bit because of a teams' needs at receiver. He carries a solid second round grade.​

    I think Moss's preformance at the Senior Bowl vaulted him into the first round. I hope not though.


    --------------------------
    Sinorice Moss is the younger brother of former Miami standout and Jets first-round pick (2001) Santana Moss, who has since been traded to the Redskins. Sinorice Moss gradually saw his playing time increase during his four-year career at Miami. His senior season was easily his best for the Canes.
    Moss lacks ideal size and may never be a full-time perimeter starter in the NFL. However, he is one of the fastest prospects in the 2006 draft class and shows a lot of upside as a No. 2 or No. 3 slot-type receiver. He can get vertical as a route runner and make plays after the catch. He also has great experience as a gunner on special teams and, despite little experience, shows upside as a punt returner.

    If Moss can show the ability to separate against bigger, stronger cornerbacks at the Senior Bowl this week and also prove capable of at least competing for playing time as a return man, he could elevate his draft stock and become late first-round pick.

    Sinorice Moss

    Height

    5-7 7/8 -- Lacks ideal height for a high-round WR prospect.


    Weight

    183 -- Possesses marginal bulk for the position.


    Speed

    4.30 -- Is one of the fastest prospects in the draft class.


    Intelligence

    Picks things up quickly. Shows ability to learn NFL schemes.


    Toughness

    Very tough. Goes over the middle. Will take the big hit.

    Strength/Flex

    Lacks strength because of his marginal size. Is flexible athlete.


    Durability

    Minor concerns due to marginal size and 2004 hamstring injury.


    Character

    Great intangibles. Emerged as a leader at Miami. Plays hard.


    Production

    Led Miami with 37 catches in 2005. Averaged 16.6 yards per catch with six receiving touchdowns.


    WR SPECIFICS

    Hands: A - Frames the ball away from his body which makes him a bigger target than size would indicate.

    Adjust To Ball: B - Very fluid with exceptional change of direction and quickly adjusts to poorly thrown balls.

    Instincts: B - Has a solid feel for the passing game and plays the game fast.

    Patterns: B - Could improve presentation but his outs are sharp and his deep routes are dangerous.

    Receive Long: A - Has rare speed to run right past defensive backs even at the NFL level.

    Receive Short: B - Makes space for himself very well and gives his QB a big target for a small receiver.

    Running Ability: A - He is a quick twitch athlete with fantastic speed and good vision after the catch.

    Blocker: C - Gives effort and is strong, but his pure size will always hold him back as a blocker.

    React In Crowd: C - Moss will not be able to go up and outmuscle NFL defenders, but his effort is impressive.

    Release: C - Should struggle early when NFL corners get their hands on him at the line of scrimmage.


    PRACTICE NOTES

    Monday (1/23/06): Moss is even smaller than advertised. His lack of height is a major concern. Practice was light with very little contact, so Moss' weaknesses were not exposed today. His quickness, change-of-direction skills and speed really stand out in one-on-one and seven-on-seven drills. He shows very good concentration catching the ball. He plucks the ball quickly on the run. He is able to tuck it away and get upfield with great initial burst. He showed the ability to adjust to poorly thrown balls on a couple of occasions today.

    Tuesday (1/24/06): Although this was not a physical practice, Moss shined on Tuesday. Clearly he is much smaller than what is ideal by NFL standards and he will be ranked very low on several team's boards that are trying to improve upon the size of their receivers, but Moss eats up a cornerback's cushion very rapidly, shows outstanding quickness and catches the ball consistently with his hands and away from his body. Moss stood out on Tuesday and made quite a few plays as a receiver and was also sure-handed as both a punt and kickoff returner.

    Wednesday (1/25/06): Like yesterday's report, it must be prefaced that this was not a contact situation, but Moss has been very impressive during the Senior Bowl practices. Wednesday was no different as he caught everything in site and showed pluck hands with balls thrown away from him or over his head. For this reason along with his ability to get up in the air, Moss' catching radius is bigger than most players his size. There isn't a cornerback on the South roster that can cover Moss one-on-one in these drills and his routes are improving and his ability to push a cushion remains outstanding.


    SUMMARY

    Moss was simply one of the most impressive players during Senior Bowl practices on either team. He played the game at a different speed than everyone else on the field and stood out to everyone in attendance. The South did not have a corner that could keep up with Moss, as his speed, quickness and explosiveness were more than they could handle. As strong of a week as Moss had in Mobile, it must be stated that although he is well built and strong, he is extremely short and none of these drills were physical, which greatly played to his strengths. Moss may have been impressive enough to have his name called in round one and is sure to be a top-40 selection.

    FINAL GRADE: A

    I would love to have Moss too, but something tells me that Pittsburgh would steal him right out from under our nose if was still there at #32. They lost Randel El and they could use Moss in much the same way. I hope I am wrong though.

    IMO:

    1. Not there at our #2 pick.

    2. We need impact defensive players.

    3. Not enough footballs for that much talent.

    4. I am not interested in breaking in another rookie WR right now. Mathis needs some more work and Carr would be better off with a WR who already has some NFL smarts.
