Las Vegas Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins: 2021 Week 3 defensive grades
When the Raiders walked away with rookie safety Trevon Moehrig in the second round of the draft, Raider Nation and all the draft pundits were pumped. Moehrig was seen as the best safety in the draft and only dropped due to a late injury.
So far this season, he hasn’t had the impact that many fans were thinking he was going to have to start the year, but that being said, he hasn’t been bad either. In fact, when it comes to Moehrig, he has been a key for the changes in this secondary and is someone the Raiders can already count on in a big way.
Johnathan Abram really seems to be fitting into his box safety role. Abram finished the game with seven total tackles and hasn’t made any of the same mistakes that he made last year. Abrams’s maturity has not only affected him off the field as he seems more serious and focused when he speaks to the media, but it also has been showing on the field.
He has done the one thing Raiders fans were asking him to do all last season, just focusing on his job, and not trying to play hero ball, so far so good on that front for Abram this season.
