Morgan Moses graduates from U-Va. with Redskins logo on cap

After reacquainting himself with the right tackle position during the Redskins’ rookie minicamp on Friday and Saturday, Morgan Moses, who played left tackle during his senior season at the University of Virginia, graduated Sunday with a degree in anthropology.

“I remember when he was here, people said he couldn’t make it here. He couldn’t make it academically,” U-Va. Coach Mike London said of Moses before the draft.

Well, Moses made it, and the third-round pick sported a Redskins logo on his mortarboard during the graduation festivities in Charlottesville.

Moses told reporters he studied anthropology because he wanted to become “the next Indiana Jones.” He is the first U-Va. player drafted by the Redskins since they took guard Jim Huddleston in the sixth round of the 1986 draft. Huddleston didn’t appear in a game for Washington.
