2014 NFL Draft
Name: Morgan Moses
Position: Offensive Tackle
Positives: Morgan Moses has the prototypical size for an NFL offensive tackle. He has long arms and the ability to get good extension and keep pass rushers from getting into his body. He has outstanding agility for such a big man. He not only is a good pass blocker, but he moves well enough to use his quickness effectively in run blocking as well.
Moses has a lean frame for his size. He began his career at Virginia in excess of 350 pounds, and has since worked to get himself in NFL ready condition at 314.
Negatives: He sometimes has trouble with speed rushers off the edge, as on occasion he doesn’t get a quick enough jump off the snap to prevent rushers from turning the corner. And he isn’t always as dominant run blocker as a man with his size and strength should be.
Impact on the Redskins: The Redskins need to upgrade at right tackle. The health of quarterback Robert Griffin III should be a high priority for them, and Morgan Moses can help with that. I actually think he was better as a right tackle at Virginia than he was at left tackle, and that would work perfectly for the Redskins as they already have a good left tackle in Trent Williams.
Where the Redskins could pick him: If Morgan Moses is on the board in the second round at # 34 for the Redskins, then they will have to take him. He has first round talent, and they have a clear need at his position.
Teams interested: Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans
