Moses was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the third round (66th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.[5] He signed a four-year, $3.05 million contract on May 29, 2014.[6] He did not start a game that season and was placed on injured reserve that December because of a lisfranc injury.[7]

During training camp of his second season in 2015, Moses won the starting right tackle job despite initial belief that new first round draft pick, Brandon Scherff, would win the job. Scherff instead became the starting right guard.[8]
