With the 227th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Washington Football Team selected Jimmy Moreland, a cornerback out of FCS powerhouse James Madison University.
It's not very often that seventh-round picks make a ton of impact, but Moreland is one of 14 players out of the 40 selected in the final round of the draft that is still playing for their original team. Of those 14, Moreland is the only one to start 10 or more games in his career.
He was, in short, the best seventh-round draft pick in 2019. A steal.
On this episode of "Locked On Washington Football Team," hosts Chris Russell and David Harrison invite Moreland on to the show to talk about his success as a seventh-round pick, new additions to the secondary, the benefits of a full-length preseason and the impact COVID-19 has for the 2021 season.
