      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

Overview

Undersized outside corner by trade who will move inside due to a lack of desired NFL size. Moreland is a ball-hawking playmaker who saw six of his 18 career interceptions turn into touchdowns. He's tenacious and physical from press with the fluidity and speed to hold up in trail technique but his off-man coverage needs work. He's thin and needs more functional mass and strength to play the NFL game, but his ball skills and toughness give him a shot at eventually finding NFL playing time as a press-happy nickel.

 

Strengths

  • Fast with consistent history as playmaker
  • Has 18 career interceptions including six for touchdowns
  • Turned in explosive 39-inch vertical leap at pro day
  • True annoyance in coverage
  • In-your-face press with accurate initial jam
  • Adequate footwork and twitch to dog routes from trail
  • Uses physicality and well-timed reaches into passing lane to disrupt
  • Trusts his eyes
  • Comes off his man to overlap in coverage
  • Rare talent as kick blocker with six total during career

Reminds me more of Merton Hanks without the head bob celebration.

 

That celebration was dubbed the “hanky panky” by Merton.

I like the Jimmy Moreland pick. I saw several mocks that had him going as early as the fourth round.  Daniel Jeremiah is high on Moreland and thinks he could be moved to safety, even though he's on the small side.  The kid has mad ball skills.  If Jeremiah is correct and if we see Moreland as a potential free safety, then I'm very very happy.  With the addition of Collins, Sweat, and R. Foster, we are a solid free safety short of a terrific defense.

Looking forward to following his progress through the offseason & preseason to monitor his shot of getting some playing time

Stroman's main criticism at first, was for being undersized and this guy is even smaller than Stroman in several areas.

Questions is, can his 18 INT's translate into a much bigger man's league ?

BIGGEST SLEEPER: Jimmy Moreland, CB, James Madison
Washington Redskins, Round 7, No. 227 overall

Thought about putting Bryce Love in this space. The fourth-round pick showcased rare explosiveness before tearing his ACL last December and could eventually serve as the perfect complement to bruising Redskins RB Derrius Guice. But can a former Heisman runner-up be deemed a sleeper? Not in this file! An undersized cornerback from the FCS, on the other hand? Yeah, that'll do. Moreland's slight stature might force him to move inside at the NFL level, but who cares: Nickel corner is essentially a starting position in 2019. Moreland turned heads at the East-West Shrine Game, earning a late invitation to the Senior Bowl, where he more than held his own. (Deebo Samuel, who ended up going early in the second round, said Moreland was the best cornerback he faced in Mobile.) The JMU product has a nose for the football and a mouth for the pros. Asked how he ended up with 18 interceptions (including five pick-sixes) during his college career, Moreland didn't stutter: "I'm a dog." Indeed. Roll that beautiful ballhawking footage!

I love Moreland as our slot CB of the future. He has the physical talent, and his size wouldn't be as much of an issue there. He is a dog in coverage, and a ball hawk, and we need more of those in the secondary.
