Mosley has a wide range in terms of where he could be drafted in May’s NFL draft with Scouts Inc. grading him out as one of the top 10 players in the draft, but because he plays a position that has been devalued in recent years, he’s been placed in the bottom half of the first round in most mock drafts.
The Ravens own the 17th pick in the draft and could be on the board for John Harbaugh’s team who could slot him in the middle of their defense. He is versatile enough to play a couple different linebacker positions and is familiar with a 3-4 front from his time with Alabama.
The Ravens drafted Arthur Brown in the second round last year out of Kansas State and could form quite a nice young duo with Mosley if they go that route. Mosley had 109 tackles last season en route to being named a consensus All-American and winner of the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker.
