The Jimmy Moreland hype was real in the 2019 off-season, and it looked like a legitimate thing once he stepped onto the field in the pre-season, too. 

However, things dramatically faded away once the regular season started. He had his fair share of rookie mistakes but also had some bright spots. 

Nevertheless, with a year under his belt, Moreland is looking to take significant strides in his development. Let's take a look at the Moreland as he enters the 'Skins spotlight.

Inside the Numbers:

Moreland finished his 2019 campaign with five starts, a combined 42 tackles (32 solos), and four passes defended.
