Previously: Timmy Jernigan (Defensive Tackle, Florida State)


CJ Mosley is a player that deserves to pick selected in the top-15, but will drop out of the top-20. I don’t know if he lasts until number 31, but if John Elway lands him, linebacker goes from weakness to strength for the Denver Broncos. Mosley is like a defensive quarterback. He does a good job reading the offense and is versatile enough to play the run, rush the quarterback or drop back. Tackling is a bit of an issue, but this can be fixed.


If this pick actually happens, I will turn off my TV and swear off the remainder of the Draft. This is an obscene steal, as the Broncos have made a killing this offseason by adding defensive lineman Demarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib and safety TJ Ward. Mosley is the top inside linebacker of the draft and fell by product of teams opting to fill other needs, much like Arthur Brown was insanely talented and slipped to the Ravens’ second round pick last year. If Mosley makes it here, there’s a lot of luck in Denver.
