His wait was over two nights, but it's hard to beat the story written for former Meadowbrook, Fork Union, and University of Virginia offensive lineman Morgan Moses.
Moses was selected #66 overall in the third round Friday night by the Washington Redskins in the 2014 NFL Draft. Moses will not only compete for a roster spot on the NFL team closest to his hometown, he'll spend his training camp(s) in his hometown at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond.
"I'm so grateful, this is crazy!", said Moses to NFL Network reporter (and fellow UVA alumnus) Melissa Stark as he finished his moment on the Radio City Music Hall stage. Some mock drafts had Moses going as high as late in Round 1, and was one of 30 college players invited to spend the week in New York and attend the Draft in the now-famous Green Room.
Moses and the rest of the Redskins will arrive in Richmond for 2014 Training Camp, their first under new head coach Jay Gruden, in late July.
