Morgan Moses won’t have to travel very far to get his professional career underway.

With the 66th-pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected the 6-6, 314-pound offensive lineman out of the University of Virginia.

Born and breed in the heart of Redskins Nation, Moses is a big-time quarterback protector with very nimble feet for his size.

The thought of Trent Williams on one side of the line and Moses on the other already has fans jumping for joy.

Just to let you in on a little secret–he has been compared to three-time Pro Bowler Ryan Clady. Yeah, go ahead and do a few more jumps of joy.

Here’s a quick highlight package during his time with the Cavaliers and NFL.com’s and CBSSports.com’s analysis of the big man:

The Washington Redskins bolstered their linebacking corps this evening with the selection of Stanford linebacker, Trent Murphy, with the 47th-overall pick.

Jim Haslett, Redskins defensive coordinator, likes his ‘backers equipped with a high motor and the versatility to d0 a variety of tasks in the 3-4 scheme.

Apparently, Murphy ran track in high school. Yeah, this boy has some wheels, but he isn’t just some fast guy. Last season, he sacked quarterbacks 15 times. That’s not a typo, Redskins fans. 15.

Imagining Murphy paired with Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan and Brandon Jenkins (remember, he was a sack master at Florida State, too) is something that will have surely have Redskins Nation excited for quite some time.

Here’s a highlight package of Murphy along with some media outlet analysis:

We put out the call to Redskins fans on Twitter earlier today to get your thoughts on what the team should do with the 34th overall pick this evening.

Now that the first 32 players are off the board, having been selected in Thursday night’s first round, national members of the media have also taken their best guesses as to what Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen and the personnel team will do with the second pick of the second round, all focused on the offensive line:

Don Banks’ mock (SI.com): Joel Bitonio, OT-G, Nevada

Bucky Brooks’ mock (NFL.com): Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

Rob Rang’s mock (CBSSports.com): Xavier Sua-Filo, G, UCLA 

Evan Silva’s mock (Rotoworld): Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

Nate Davis’ mock (USA Today): Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

WalterFootball.com:  Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

While the first-round certainly provides flash and cornerstone quarterbacks, right tackles and linebackers, it’s the rest of the draft that delivers the workhorses that complete a team.

Tonight, 64 men will be selected in Rounds 2 and 3. There’s no need to look any further than the Washington Redskins’ current roster to see what these rounds offer.
