Same Career, Different Appreciation: Beloved Nate Hobbs, Doubted Trevon Moehrig, And Their Nearly-Identical Careers As Raiders

Drafted by the Las Vegas Raiders in round two of the 2021 NFL Draft, safety Trevon Moehrig has been a day-one starter in Las Vegas’ secondary. During his rookie campaign, Moehrig played the same coverage-safety role that led him to win the Jim Thorpe Award in 2020. This past season, now in year-two of his NFL career, Moehrig swapped to a utility role. Instead of playing the free safety position he was accustomed to, the former TCU defensive back spent his ’22 season at strong safety. Teammate Nate Hobbs shares a similar story.
