West Virginia Football All-Time Draft: Pick #15

I'm heading back to sure up another area of the offense and guarantee my draft victory with another WVU legend.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

With the Fifteenth Pick of the draft, SmithFire13 selects...

one of the best offensive linemen Mountaineer Nation has ever seen, #76 Dan Mozes.

This analysis is not going to be highlighted by YouTube videos of pancakes and perfect form pass blocking, but that is solely due to the lack of general public interest and not because Mozes lacked talent. The center from Washington, PA, has a list of accolades that rivals the best this school has ever seen. Three-time First Team All-Big East, Consensus All-American (2006), and Rimington Trophy winner (2006) as the nation's top center. 2006 was easily his best year allowing zero sacks while anchoring the zone-read offense to 63 touchdowns.

Sadly, due to injury, Mozes never had to chance to shine with the Vikings in the NFL. Luckily for me, this draft is about WVU players and having #76 leading my offensive line is more than enough.
