    The word on young Mr. Moreland so far is that he has a ton of confidence and is just an all around baller. He's a smaller, corner, but then again, so was Darrell Green Love his attitude and he may be just what we need. His draft profiles all talk about his speed, that he's got a nose for the ball, great ball skills, small school gem, Rooting for him to excel. He probably projects as a nickel back due to his size, but you have to like his athleticism and he plays well beyond his size. Love our Virginia products and we may have gotten a huge steal from JMU.

    Some additional highlights and a short interview:

    He was indeed, but somebody either forgot to tell HIM that or he just ignored them it they did. He was going to scratch and claw his way through any game scenario whether he had any chance of winning or not. A warrior to the bone, and if memory serves, despite fighting out of his weight class, so to speak, nearlly as many times as not, he gave at least as good as he got. Usually better than he got. If the league hadn't decided to allow the zebras to look the other way at Michael Irvin's blatant shoves, err, use of hands out of his breaks to create space, then DG would have played all those years having never come close to being outplayed by his opposite number, no matter what size they were. I hope this kid has a little of that fighting spirit in him, cuz you can never have too much of that on a squad.

    'The Yorkie', gonna be fun to watch

    The more videos I watch on our 2019 draft class the more I love our draft picks. I don't want any of them to go on the practice squad.

    Redskins rookie Jimmy Moreland becoming “the people’s cornerback”


    Hype moves quickly in the NFL offseason, and a certain Redskins rookie is doing his part to fuel the fire.


    Organized team activities provide the very first opportunities for incoming rookies to prove they can stick around with the veterans of the NFL. The Washington Redskins found, on Wednesday, that one late-round pick might be better acclimated for the pro game than expected.


    His fans gave him a nickname in which an expletive became his middle name in college, and as he moved on to the NFL, he was described as a pick machine, with a dog mentality. James Madison product Jimmy Moreland didn’t have your average seventh-round pick reputation. Coming off of a four-year college career with 18 interceptions and 63 pass deflections, Moreland was No. 120 on our Top 150 big board, and in Round 7, he was considered great value.

    Moreland backed up that suspicion on Wednesday. Beat reporters live tweeted in awe as Moreland caught not one, not two, but three interceptions in organized team activities. The way he acquired these interceptions varied as well. On the first pick, he ripped a screen pass from the hands of Darvin Kidsy. On the second, he snared a pass deflected by Deion Harris. And on the third, Moreland read Dwayne Haskins‘ eyes and undercut a route in the red zone, taking the football 100 yards the other way, with a parade of Redskins players behind him.


    After practice, a reporter asked Moreland how many picks he had that day. Moreland responded, with a smile.

    “Three. Hat trick.”
