A New Orleans native, Moreau has worked himself into a starting tight end for his home-state team. As a true freshman, he played in 12 games and started one, but did not catch a pass. He started 3 of 11 games as a sophomore, catching six passes for 79 yards and one touchdown. The team made him a more regular target in 2017, and Moreau took advantage with 24 receptions for 278 yards and three touchdowns in 13 starts. He started all 13 games in 2018, putting up similar statistics to the previous year (22-272-12.4, two scores).

Overview
Moreau is a feisty, committed run-blocking tackle with solid technique and footwork to find proper angles in-line or on the move. He's tough enough to battle at the point of attack, but at his best when he's a lead blocker on iso, wham blocks, and outside zone with his ability to locate and land on second-level targets. He lacks finesse as a route-runner and is too content to be covered when matched up against a linebacker. While he's not dynamic, he should find work as a run-blocking option who can be moved around formations.
Strengths
  • Possesses necessary base and core strength to succeed as in-line blocker
  • Understands positioning of feet and hips and usually finds it
  • Can be sticky and irritating to defenders with his desire to sustain and finish blocks
  • Long strides to maintain positioning of hips on backside zone blocks
  • Shows consistent ability to gather weight and strike with well-targeted blows in space
  • Hand placement generally inside defender's frame
  • Well-conditioned and maintains technique late in game
  • Adequate feel for using frame to shield defender and make contested catch
  • Tends to be a punishing runner after catch.
Weaknesses
  • Sluggish start-up quickness into routes
  • Slow into breaks and slow out of them
  • Easy to find and hound for linebackers in coverage
  • Doesn't work hard to create space for the throw in tight quarters
  • Needs to run his feet up under his hands rather than waist-bending as run blocker
  • Can be a little clumsy around excessive foot traffic
  • Pace needs to quicken for move blocks on next level
