Scouting Report
Because of his sizable frame for an offensive lineman and longer arms, Moses is projected by some as a late first-round pick. Because he needs some work on his technique and might have trouble keeping his weight down, he's also considered perhaps a fourth- or fifth-round selection. Moses made 43 starts and played both sides of the line in his four seasons at Virginia. He was the program's third true freshman to start at tackle along with two players taken in the 2006 draft, D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Brad Butler. He gave up only two sacks on 506 pass attempts and helped Kevin Parks become the Cavaliers' first 1,000-yard rusher since 2004 this past year while playing his first full season at left tackle. Moses might have to switch to right tackle or guard initially because of his need for refinement. His most significant weaknesses are his inability to adjust during a play and his higher pad level. Some scouts have also stated that Moses needs to develop more aggression. Moses entered Virginia at around 350 pounds and his weight reportedly fluctuated over his four years, but he was down to 314 at the NFL combine. He was also measured with an arm length of 35 3/8 inches and that could help his stock. By at least most accounts, he had a strong performance at the Senior Bowl but didn't turn any heads at the combine. He failed to make the top 10 in any of his drills but did not participate in the bench press. According to the NFL's official website, Moses also did not lift during Virginia's pro day because of an ailing pectoral muscle from the Senior Bowl, and he pulled his left hamstring while running 5.14 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
