The Redskins have completed signing all members of their 2014 rookie class. Earlier this morning the team announced that Morgan Moses, their third round selection in this year’s draft, had signed his rookie deal. Moses is the last timber to fall, joining all of his fellow rookie draft prospects on the Redskins roster.

Moses will have the chance to make the starting lineup this year. The Virginia product stands tall at 6’6, along with his 314-lb of sheer force. You can’t teach size and this kid has it tenfold. He will be contending for the right offensive tackle spot, fighting against incumbent Tyler Polumbus.
Both of the Redskins’ third round picks bolstered the offensive line (the other pick being guard Spencer Long), a clear indication that the team’s big priority this season is protecting Robert Griffin III. Added offensive line depth to protect their star QB could be monumental in helping the Redskins’ newly amplified offense (see Desean Jackson signing) make an impact in the NFC East.
