TCU S Moehrig to enter NFL draft
TCU safety Trevon Moehrig has played his last game for the Horned Frogs, as he announced on social media Saturday that he is forgoing his senior season to enter the 2021 NFL Draft.
Moehrig, who finished tied for second in the Big 12 with 11 passes defended, recorded two interceptions and nine pass breakups to go along with 47 tackles. He is one of three finalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, presented to the nation’s top defensive back.
The two-time All-Big 12 first team selection also received All-America honors from multiple outlets, including the Sporting News, The Associated Press and ESPN.
“Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of playing in the NFL, and taking care of the ones I love most. After much prayer, thought, and talking with family I’ve decided that it is best for me to forgo my senior season and enter the 2021 NFL Draft. I will cherish all the memories I’ve made at TCCU and I will always be a Frog. Thank you for the support over the past 3 years,” Moehrig tweeted.
At 6-feet-2 and 202 pounds, Moehrig is expected to be an early round pick, though no safeties were taken in the first round of last year’s draft.
The NFL draft will take place April 29-May 1 in Cleveland.
