The 2021 NFL Draft is now behind us, which means NFL teams are in the process of rebuilding all of their rosters.
The Las Vegas Raiders are probably no different before what could be a pivotal fourth season in Jon Gruden’s second era.
That’s why we’ll be going through the evaluations of the Raiders’ player roster and position groups to see how everyone’s stock measures up as summer approaches.
The Raiders did what many analysts thought was the second-round pick of the 2021 NFL Draft when they took safety from the TCU Trevon Moehrig.
Seen as the only security that could be a first-round prospect, Moehrig has built a solid record in three years at TCU. He has led college safeties in pass breakouts for the past two seasons and ended his career with seven interceptions.
Moehrig’s game peaked with his ranking by Pro Football Focus as the third best security in college football in 2019, and he was twice selected in defense in the All-Big 12 First Team.
Physically, Moehrig brings a prototype size at 6-2 and 202 pounds and has the range that allows him to come down by stopping the race. However, he needs to work on taking consistent angles with the ball, as well as making himself less likely to give up big cover plays.
His covering skills, however, are perfectly suited to what the Raiders need in the backdrop of their defense this season.
Moehrig gives the Raiders a legitimate ballhawk who has the knack for making game-changing plays defensively.
If the Raiders are to return to the playoffs in 2021, they’ll need to see more, and Moehrig just might be the catalyst the Raiders have been looking for.
