Former Missouri receiver T.J. Moe isn’t very big (about 6 feet, 200 pounds). He’s strong and he’s white. He is called “tough” and “gritty” by scouts and wasn’t drafted.
So naturally he’s compared with Wes Welker.
“It’s an honor to get compared to a great player,” said Moe, who was signed by the Patriots last week. “I’m not worried about that, I’m worried about trying to make the Patriots roster and trying to do everything they ask me to do, so from start to finish here we’ll be listening . . . I’ll let the comparisons [be] left to you guys.”
Moe was invited to the NFL scouting combine; Welker was not when he came out of Texas Tech. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
