Morgan Moses: 'Getting These Reps Means A Lot'

Posted Aug 20, 2014

Picked by the Redskins in the third-round of this year's NFL draft, Morgan Moses is using the preseason slate as a litmus test to see where he stands.

For rookie offensive lineman Morgan Moses, each day represents another stepping stone towards progressing into the player he wants to be at the NFL level.

Listed as the second-string left tackle on the team’s unofficial depth chart, Moses has two preseason games with significant playing time under his belt – a huge plus in his continued development.

“Being able to go against different defenses and doing some different things is really helping me a lot,” Moses said Monday after the Washington Redskins defeated the Cleveland Browns 24-23 in preseason Week 2 action. “Because it’s allowing me to see things on the field during the preseason and getting these reps on the field means a lot.”

Also aiding in his growth both while he’s on the field against an opposing defense or on the Redskins’ sideline is left tackle Trent Williams – a two-time Pro Bowler who is considered one of the best lineman in the league by his peers.

“First of all, being able to learn from a guy like Trent and learning from him hands-on is really helping me elevate my game,” Moses said. “So when I get there on game day, I can see things a lot clearer. But I’m going out there and giving 100 percent effort, and that’s all that I can ask for.”

But the on-field assistance doesn’t stop at just Williams.

At practices, Moses is tasked with the responsibility of keeping the quarterbacks out of Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan’s way.

Combined, Orakpo and Kerrigan have 66 career sacks, and both have started the preseason slate this year with at least one sack apiece.

They also join together to provide Moses a constant reminder that the NFL is a much quicker-paced game.

“In practice, we move at high tempo,” he said. “Going against guys like Orakpo and Kerrigan, it definitely helps and translate into games.”

The Browns game included, the next nine days will let Moses and the coaching staff know where he stands entering the regular season.

On Saturday, the Redskins face the Baltimore Ravens – a perennial top team in terms of defensive play – and then travel to Tampa Bay just five days later to face a revamped Buccaneers defensive unit.

It may sound simple, but Moses said focusing on daily improvement continues to be his main goal over this final stretch of the preseason.

“Whether it’s a practice, walkthrough or a game, I just (want to) let the coaches know that I know the playbook and I’m trying to get better every day," he said.
