The Redskins have signed all of their draft picks

The Redskins have finished their journey through the relatively painless process of signing draft picks.

The team announced Thursday morning that tackle Morgan Moses has agreed to a four-year contract with the team. The third-round pick is the last of the team’s eight picks to agree to a deal, knocking one item off the team’s offseason to-do list three weeks after the first round took place.

Moses started at left tackle at Virginia in 2013, but played on the right side of the line earlier in his career and Trent Williams‘ presence in Washington means he’ll be looking for work on the right side in the NFL as well. His chief competition at right tackle will be incumbent Tyler Polumbus, who hasn’t impressed as a starter over the last two seasons.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been there. … Just getting that feeling back,” Moses said, via CBS Washington. “One thing about me, I’m ambidextrous, so being able to adapt to both sides is something I’ve been able to do throughout my college career.”

If he can transition back to the right side quickly, a starting job could be in his future as a rookie.

    What! No gratuitous backhanders about the Redskins team name? Shocking – but welcome.

    I’m impressed that he knew the word ambidextrous and was able to use it in context. That alone is an amazing feat for an NFL player.

    What draft picks? They gave the next 2 years away. They don’t have any to sign until 2016. Bruce Allen. GM of the year!!!

    If Moses keeps his learning process on top of his “to do” list, and doesn’t slack off, he’ll be a great addition! But Polumbus has gotten better each year, and although he’s not a pro bowl tackle, he’ll do until better talent can be found, either in FA, or the draft! Maybe even upcoming cuts could bring us one! But Tyler would be a fair backup in any case!

    So Rick Ross started a new career. Guess that means no more horrible songs. Thank god. He was the furthest thing from a “Boss”.

    It’s so nice not having rookies hold out all summer like they used to when they were overpaid before they ever took a snap

    Excited about Murphy, Moses and Breeland. Think they all have plug and playmaker ability. Moses was INCREDIBLE value in the third as a top of the first prospect. Beware NFC East. The REDSKINS do/will have the most prolific offense in the division bringing the BEast back to the East. Truly the toughest division in the NFL
