The latest Las Vegas Raiders roster news includes today’s signing of safety Tre’von Moehrig, their second-round pick. The announcement came from the team Monday and leaves only two Raiders draft picks unsigned: third-rounders Malcolm Koonce and Divine Deablo.

Moehrig was picked in the 43rd overall position in the 2021 draft. The 6-foot-2, 202-pound safety out of Texas Christian was projected as a possible first-rounder. He is expected to compete for a starting position in the Raiders backfield.

Moehrig played three seasons (2018-20) at TCU, appearing in 34 games with 24 starts over his career and compiling 125 tackles (86 solo), seven interceptions, 28 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

As a junior in 2020, Moehrig was the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award Recipient as the nation’s top defensive back while being named to seven All-American teams, including garnering second-team honors by the Associated Press. He was also named a semifinalist for the Chuck Bendarik Award and was tabbed first-team All-Big 12.

A native of Spring Branch, Texas, Moehrig was a four-star recruit by 247Sports.com, being ranked the No. 4 cornerback in Texas and No. 19 in the country while attending Smithson Valley High School.
