For five yearsMoss was that rare wide receiver who merited a high fantasy draft pick. But in2004 he had career lows for receptions (49), yards (767) and catches for 20yards or more (11), and last season he further struggled, with eight TDs and1,005 yards while enduring groin, pelvis and rib injuries and the erratic playof Raiders quarterbacks Kerry Collins and Marques Tuiasosopo. Will the29-year-old Moss return to vintage form this season? It's not likely,considering that the Raiders are counting on new QB Aaron Brooks, a model ofinconsistency during his six years in New Orleans, to right their 21st-rankedoffense.

Bottom Line: Asolid No. 2 receiver who could emerge as an elite player in '06. Worth a shotin the middle rounds.
