About Morgan Moses
Moses, a Richmond-area native, attended Meadowbrook High School in Chesterfield where he was a two-time all-state, all-region and all-district selection. Moses went on to attended Fork Union Military Academy prior to enrolling at the University of Virginia. As a senior at UVA, Moses earned third-team All-ACC honors as well as a Coaches All-ACC second team nomination in 2013. The 6-6, 335-pound tackle was selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round (66th overall) in the 2014 NFL draft. Moses made his NFL debut on Sept. 14, 2014, and his first NFL start on Nov. 24, 2014. He appeared in eight games his rookie year and has stated all 16 games the previous two seasons (’15 & ’16) for Washington. Moses has developed into one of the most reliable offensive lineman in the league, resulting in a five-year contract extension in April. The 26-year-old has started the last 32 regular season games for the Redskins over the last two years including Washington’s wild-card round game against the Green Bay Packers following an NFC East championship in 2015.
