Morgan Moses of Virginia remains promising OT prospect

Representatives from 28 NFL teams were present Monday for Virginia’s pro day, where six players — including one prospect who could be selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft — worked out indoors on FieldTurf.

Morgan Moses, OT (6-foot-6 1/4, 311 pounds) — Moses — who was at the NFL Scouting Combine — ran the 40-yard dash just once, doing so in 5.14 seconds and pulling up with a left hamstring pull. He had a 26-inch vertical jump and 8-foot-11 broad jump, but didn’t do any strength lifts on the bench press due to a pectoral muscle issue from the Reese’s Senior Bowl. Moses was not able to do a positional workout after pulling his hamstring in the 40.

Despite the pro-day setback, Moses is probably going to be selected somewhere between picks Nos. 30-45 in the draft. He is spoken very highly of as a person, and the athleticism he displays at his size suggests he has a lot of upside as an offensive tackle in the NFL.

Brent Urban, DT (6-6 3/4, 296) — Urban — who was at the combine — was injured and couldn’t do any drills. He has 33-inch arms.
