2014 NFL Draft: LB C.J. Mosley Selected By Baltimore Ravens

C.J. Mosley - LB Alabama, 6’2″, 234 LBS, 33.375″ Arm Length

Drafted Round 1, Pick 17 , Baltimore Ravens

Combine Results: N/A Forty | 35.0″ Vertical Jump | 118″ Broad Jump

  • Won the Butkus Award (nation’s top linebacker) and was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year (coaches) in ’13.
  • Team captain won a pair of national championships.
  • Did not bench press or run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine because of a right shoulder injury.

NFL Impact: Mosley enters the NFL with an unbelievable amount of skill-set and personal traits that would make any organization that drafts this kid very happy. While he does lack true size for his position, playing on a narrow frame, he is a weight-room fanatic who also stays late as he is a film room junkie. Playing with great instincts, speed and awareness, Mosley plays bigger than he is. Playing with authority, urgency and an abundance of passion, the Alabama product should be taken within the first fifteen picks of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He deserves to be as not only is he a great physical presence on the field, but he is also an exceptional leader who commands respect form his teammates, leads the positioning on the field and is selfless. He is all about the team and is completely focused on the ultimate goal at hand. 

Fantasy Impact: The former Butkus Award winner has a chance to really make an impact in fantasy football IDP leagues. He has the build to play any linebacker position and with his speed, strength and awareness combination, he should have no problem racking up plenty of tackles. If he earns a starting position at the start of the year, barring a reoccurrence of injury which he has fallen victim to in the college ranks, Mosley will earn a spot on plenty of 2014 fantasy football IDP rosters.
