Quick Analysis: Moritz Boehringer

Moritz “Mo” Boehringer is a 6-foot-4, 225 pound wide receiver with 4.4 speed. And he just happens to be from Germany. Mo became the first international player to be selected in the draft without ever seeing a college football snap.

Boehringer is raw, but he’s got the physical tools that had the scouts drooling. After his outstanding pro day at Florida Atlantic he became the center of media attention. He still has a lot to learn as he has only been playing American football since 2013. Boehringer first began with the Crailsheim Titans, a junior youth team in Germany. He played well enough to be “called up” to the German Football League in 2015 to play for the Schwabisch Hall Unicorns. All he did in his first season was win GFL Rookie of the Year honors after catching 59 receptions for 1,232 yards and 13 touchdowns in 16 games. Boehringer’s training at XPE Sports Academy in Boca Raton Florida has paid off as he now sets his sights on moving up the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver depth chart.
