Thaddeus Moss just became a national champion, and now he’s ready to take the next step in his career. The LSU tight end declared for the 2020 draft on Friday, he announced on Twitter.

Moss initially was well-known for being the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Randy Moss, but he quickly made a name for himself. After starting his career at N.C. State and playing sparingly, he transferred to LSU and enjoyed a breakout season this past year. He ended up catching 47 passes for 570 yards and four touchdowns, and he had the 14th-most yards of any tight end in the nation. In the title game against Clemson this past week he played a pivotal role, reeling in two touchdowns from Joe Burrow.

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report recently wrote that he “is an accomplished run-blocker and physical player over the middle of the field” as well as a “three-down talent.” Moss isn’t going to go in the first round like his father did back in 1998, but he has the chance to rise up some draft boards as he wasn’t known to too many before this season. As a previously unknown prospect with some intriguing tools, he has the potential to be a late riser in the process.
