The Lounge>Utah RB Zack Moss details formal meeting with Chiefs

Utah’s Zack Moss is widely considered among the top running backs in the 2020 NFL draft class, and he’s out to prove it at the NFL Scouting Combine. He’s been compared to great players like former Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and even models his game after him. This past season Moss became one of the most prolific rushers in Utah history. He now holds career records for carries (712) rushing yards (4,167), 100-yard rushing games (18), rushing touchdowns (38) and total touchdowns (41).

Moss met with the Kansas City Chiefs for a formal meeting on Tuesday night, where he positioned himself to become the next explosive weapon added to one of the NFL’s most fearsome offenses.

“It was really good,” Moss said of his interview. “I was able to meet head coach Andy Reid, all of their offensive coaches, the RB coach and offensive coordinator. We talked some football and I just picked their brains and they picked mine.”

There’s no hangover from Super Bowl LIV for the Chiefs’ front office and coaching staff. Moss learned a few things about the franchise and their approach to the combine during his interview with the team.

“They’re business first,” Moss told Chiefs Wire. “They’re down to the nitty-gritty, from every single detail. When you come in there you have to be prepared to go — you feel like it’s a hostile environment.”

Moss felt that he left a positive impression on the Chiefs’ coaching staff following the formal interview. It sounded like the type of impression that could make him an option for Kansas City come April’s draft.

“I feel like they learned that I’m going to be a knowledgeable guy,” Moss said. “That I’m more than just a run-between-the-tackles [type of player] and that I can adapt to any offense.”

Moss describes himself as a versatile player, one that teams will never have to take off the field. He feels comfortable catching, blocking, and in short-yardage situations. He’s faced adversity in college football, suffering a knee injury in 2018, but he bounced back from it. It’s given him an added layer of confidence throughout this process.


One thing that added confidence in his interview with the Chiefs was familiarity with a member of their staff. Chiefs defensive quality control coach Alex Whittingham played with Moss at Utah. Moss says they’ve kept in touch since Wittingham graduated and joined the Chiefs’ coaching staff.

“I’ve talked to Alex, two or three times in the past couple of months,” Moss said. “I shot him a text message saying ‘Congratulations on the Super Bowl’ and things like that. I was able to see him a little bit earlier [before the Super Bowl] last year.”

Great vision, quick feet, deceptive speed and very good power. I think the Chiefs see some KH in this guy.

He might end up being the best back in this draft. He reminds me of Kareem in that way where he might be sitting there late round 3.

I’d love that pick.

You wonder if other teams will start moving guys that we like/interview/workout (especially on offense) up their draft boards because of Andy and Veach’s ability to identify talent.

A guy like this may benefit simply because we were sniffing around

They would never let real targets go to the press like that. Veach plays his cards close to the chest.

if some back like that drops to the very last pick of the first round, I'm good with taking him. I kind of like this whole picking last thing.

It's like watching Kareem all over again...crazy how similar they are. I think with Swift, Taylor, Dobbins and Clyde Edwards likely going before him, we may be able to get Moss In the third or fourth round tbh.

Andy is going to evolve the offense, Running back is certainly an area that can be improved. Said it before scariest thing in the world for the Nfl would be Pat getting a defense and a running game.
