Morgan Moses, OL: Kansas City Chiefs Scouting Report

 

Offensive tackle Morgan Moses comes out of Virginia as only the third true freshman in school history to start at the position, after D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Brad Butler.

At 6’6″, 314 pounds, Moses has a great build for a pro LT. Long arms and nimble footwork will make him a very attractive prospect for some team picking outside of the first five or six top linemen. He’s drawn comparisons to Ryan Clady in his skill set and body type.

From CBS Sports:

Ideal length and proportion throughout for an NFL offensive tackle. Does a good job of exhibiting patience off the snap as he routinely establishes width and good bend in his base to either absorb or mirror his opponent in pass protection. Makes good use of his long arms by extending and punching to keep defenders off his frame. Displays a fluid, consistent kick-slide when asked to track and dictate a speed rusher around the edge.

CBS projects him as a second round pick, while NFL.com has a different view:

DRAFT PROJECTION

Rounds 4-5

Big, long-armed leaner with sheer size and length and enough movement skill to function at an adequate level on the right side, though his high-maintenance conditioning, intermittent intensity and uneven performance turns off some teams.
Why he fits in with the Kansas City Chiefs:
There’s a chance that KC won’t have a second round pick this year. The only way they get one, really, is by trading down with another team. Moses might actually be available when the Chiefs pick again in the third round, and that could make him a Justin Houston-like steal.
He’s a well-built prospect with an enormous upside. He may just need the right coaching and system to succeed on a bigger stage, and I think that makes him worth taking a flyer on him.
