The NFL season is just around the corner, meaning training camp is now underway. Two Virginia alumni, Morgan Moses and Quin Blanding, are with the Washington Redskins for this upcoming season and took a chance to talk to the media after practice about a variety of things.

Moses, an offensive tackle, has been with the Redskins since he was drafted by the organization in 2014.

After practice, Moses spoke about playing alongside a fellow Wahoo, even if they didn’t share the field in Charlottesville.

Blanding went un-drafted in this year’s draft, despite being a mainstay on the All-ACC First Team for his final three years at UVA and garnering All-American accolades. The Redskins picked him up as an un-drafted free agent, and he’s excited to represent his new team.

It looks like he’s fitting in just fine:

Though, when Nana asks you to put up her swing...you do it. NFL player or not.

Across the country, Blanding’s defensive superstar counterpart, Micah Kiser, is getting into the swing of things with the Los Angeles Rams.

Kiser was arguably one of the biggest steals of the 2018 draft, slipping all the way to the fifth round where LA picked him up. He led the ACC in tackles for three straight seasons, becoming only the second player (Boston College’s Luke Kuechly was the other) to accomplish the feat.

Other recent Virginia grads Andre Levrone and Kurt Benkert, have also taken to social media (or other have) to post about camp with the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons, respectively.

Been dreaming of this since I was 4 years old
