Redskins selected Virginia OT Morgan Moses with the No. 66 overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Moses (6-foot-6 1/8, 314) made 43 starts for the Cavaliers, 12 at left tackle, 30 at right tackle, and one at right guard. He was UVA's left tackle as a senior, yielding only two sacks. Moses measured in with vine-like 35 3/8-inch arms at the Combine, running 5.35 with a 21 1/2-inch vertical. Despite athletic limitations, Moses has a chance to stay on the blindside in the pros because of his length. He projects as likely NFL starter, albeit with some bust risk. There's a concerning amount of stiffness to Moses' game, he's a disinterested run blocker, and he has a reputation for laziness. The Redskins will ask Moses to play right away, likely at right tackle. May 9 - 9:39 PM

Miami does not have a first-round grade on Virginia T Morgan Moses, according to the Miami Herald.

Trusted beat reporter Adam Beasley reports that the Dolphins, who badly need a starting RT, have first-round grades on just five offensive tackles: Notre Dame's Zack Martin, Michigan's Taylor Lewan, Texas A&M's Jake Matthews, Auburn's Greg Robinson and Tennessee's Ja’Wuan James. "In their eyes, there’s a drop-off to the next level, which includes Virginia’s Morgan Moses," Beasley wrote. ESPN's Todd McShay calls Moses "one of the 15 best players in the draft."

ESPN's Todd McShay said on the "First Draft" podcast that Virginia T Morgan Moses "is one of the 15 best players in the draft."

"Write that down," McShay said. "He's got power, he's got the long, long arms, almost 36 inch arms... not many guys like that." Moses played some of his best football against top-notch rushers such as Vic Beasley, Jeremiah Attaochu and Kyle Van Noy. Mel Kiper, however, believes Moses plays too high. Kiper scoffed at McShay's assertion that Moses is better than Notre Dame's Zach Martin. "Talk about overrating an offensive tackle," Kiper said.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl and Steve Muench said during a "NFL Draft Blitz" segment that Virginia T Morgan Moses is a "sleeper franchise left tackle."

"I think he's going to go pretty quick in that first round," Weidl said. Muench agreed, and pointed to Moses' work against GTU's Jeremiah Attaochu as evidence: While the explosive Attaochu abused Virgina's right tackle, whenever the Yellow Jackets' star lined up over Moses he was erased. Scouts Inc. draft guru Todd McShay moved Moses up to No. 14 overall earlier this month, and NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock is a known fan. His stock is rising.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Virginia T Morgan Moses' "value has increased after the injury to Brandon Thomas."

"It's not that Thomas would have been selected before Moses rather the injury precludes a team passing on Moses with the hopes of getting Thomas a round later," wrote Pauline. "I’m told the Carolina Panthers could grab Moses late in round one and many think he won’t get past the Washington Redskins in the second frame." This sounds about right to us. If Moses isn't tabbed late in Round 1, he won't have to wait too long to hear his name announced on Day 2.

When asked which draft prospect has elevated their stock that he might have missed the first time around, NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock mentioned Virginia T Morgan Moses.

Moses didn't test well at the combine, and he doesn't have a great body, but Mayock loves his game tape, a sentiment echoed by Houston SportsTalk 790 hosts Adam Clanton and Lance Zierlein. It's not hard to see why the footage swayed them: Moses succeeded against top-notch rushers such as Vic Beasley, Jeremiah Attaochu and Kyle Van Noy.
Apr 7 - 8:57 PM

Virginia T Morgan Moses is now Scouts Inc. draft analyst Todd McShay's No. 14 overall prospect.

Moses easily jumped the most spots, as he was previously listed at No. 32 overall. "Moses is an effective run-blocker, with good quickness and finishing ability and only really needing to work on his balance, but where he really stands out is as a pass protector." Moses faced some very good rushers in Vic Beasley, Jeremiah Attaochu and Kyle Van Noy, but fared quite well against each opponent.

Scout Inc.'s Kevin Weidl calls Virginia T Morgan Moses a "giant with impressive feet and lateral agility."

And Moses has already proven that he can neutralize top DE prospects, as the analyst notes. "Moses did a heck of a job against Jeremiah Attaouchu (who I'm fairly high on)," Weidl wrote. Moses will go between the late-first and early-second round.

Virginia T Morgan Moses will meet with the Panthers on Friday, as opposed to Wednesday.

Moses has scheduled at least nine private meetings. If Carolina falls in love, they'll probably have a chance to pop Moses in the latter stages of Round 1. Moses probably won't be around when the Panthers choose again.
Mar 19 - 5:09 PM

Virginia T Morgan Moses will meet with the Panthers on Wednesday.

This is one of nine private meetings that Moses has scheduled at this time. Many rank the big left tackle as a top-40 prospect, and he is certainly in play in the late first-round for teams needing to invest in offensive linemen. The Panthers certainly fit that title. Rotoworld's Josh Norris prefers prospects like Brandon Thomas and Joel Bitonio.

Virginia T Morgan Moses improved his 5.35 Combine forty to 4.99 or 5.06 seconds, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline does note the "official" pro day time could fall around the 5.06 mark, but this is still a near impossible sized improvement. Moses is listed as a top 40 prospect by many despite his upright posture, but his long arms tend to compensate for some movement deficiencies. He is a real possibility in the late first-round for a team with tackle issues.

Virginia T Morgan Moses slid into the first round of Scout.Inc's Todd McShay's mock draft.

Moses has been gaining some steam ever since an impressive Senior Bowl, and that's certainly illustrated by McShay's projection of the Saints snapping him up with the No. 27 pick. Notably, the prospect has assuaged scouts' concerns about his ability to move laterally. Moses posted an official 5.35-second forty at the NFL Combine and measured in at 6-foot-6, 314 pounds.

Virginia T Morgan Moses posted an official 5.35-second forty at the NFL Combine.

Moses logged unofficial runs of 5.19 and 5.28 seconds. His unofficial 10-yard split times came in at 1.94 and 1.95, respectively. Moses measured 6-foot-6, 314 pounds in Indy, a height that was expected but a weight nine pounds lighter than listed. He shouldn't have any problem regaining that weight, and perhaps being a tad more lithe allowed Moses to look decent on the track.

Virginia T Morgan Moses "engulfed people with his size" at the Senior Bowl, said Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage.

He displayed more lateral quickness than scouts expected, according to Savage, which could help make up for his "uneven, inconsistent career at UVA." Savage thought Moses acquitted himself well as a left tackle in practices. "I thought he had a very good week," Savage said.

Former NFL exec Greg Gabriel does not see Virginia's Morgan Moses playing LT at the next level.

"His athleticism is more conducive to playing on the right side," Gabriel writes. "He will be an early starter in the league and, perhaps, a rookie starter. If there is a run on offensive linemen like last year, he has a chance to get drafted in the first round, but I believe his true value is in the top 10 picks of the second round." Moses' technique is not good, but many will like his perceived upside thanks to athleticism and length. We worry he will turn into a waist bender and a liability.
