The SEC Blog will be counting down the top 150 players in the SEC every day, concluding on Aug. 30, at the start of the college football regular season.


66. T.J Moe No. 28, Missouri Wide Receiver

2011 stats: 54 catches for 649 yards and four touchdowns, 23 punt returns for 47 yards, 26 kickoff returns for 607 yards, 11 rushes for 61 yards, completed 2-of-3 passes for 71 yards and one touchdown

 

Strengths

Moe is a savvy veteran who has great hands and the ability to find holes in the defense. He had a relatively down season last year as Missouri's offense shifted with dual-threat quarterback James Franklin under center. He had 92 catches and 1,045 yards as a sophomore in 2010. 

 

Weaknesses

Moe's role shifted a bit last season as Missouri became more of a run-oriented team. The combination of Franklin and Henry Josey limited his touches. Franklin is back, but Josey isn't likely to play in 2012. Offensive coordinator David Yost may adjust his style more in Moe's favor because of that and the emergence of freshman receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.

 

2012 Prediction

Moe's stats may not suggest that he's a top-tier SEC wide receiver at the end of the season, but he will still play an important role in the Tigers' 2012 offensive success. Whether it's as the No. 1 receiver, the second option behind Green-Beckham or as a decoy/blocker in the running game, his leadership will be very valuable as Missouri transitions to the SEC.
