RICHMOND -- It's not everybody can refer to 6-foot-6, 335-pound Morgan Moses as little in any capacity. This specific context didn't involve size by seniority.
"I took him under my wing," Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams Tuesday said of his younger and right side counterpart. "He's like a little brother to me."
Wobbly upon entering the league, Moses emerged as a starter last season next to rookie right guard Brandon Scherff. While the Redskins had issues at left guard and center throughout the year, the right side turned into a strength. Now it's to the point that the only questions asked of coach Jay Gruden about Moses and Scherff involve just how good they can be.
Perhaps that's why Moses is one smiley lineman even after leaving the field following two heat-filled practices.
"I'm just happy," he said Monday.
Same goes for the coach.
"[Brandon] and Morgan both on the right side, to see how far they’ve come along from last year at this time, it's night and day," Gruden said.
As for the upside, Williams showed no restraint.
"I see so much potential in him and so much talent in [Moses], and you know, I’m just pleased to see how hard he works and how much he tries to continue to improve his game on the field and off the field, in the meeting room… I mean, he’s a scholar of the game and the sky’s the limit for him," Williams said. "I definitely think that right side is going to emerge as one of the best right sides in this league in the next couple years."
