Former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker C.J. Mosley has drawn a lot of interest from teams as the NFL Draft approaches after a stellar career under Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa.
However, as is always the case, there are some that are just a little bit more interested in others, and on Tuesday Mosley revealed that the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens are the ones who seem the most intrigued with landing his services.
“I heard a lot from the Bills, and the Ravens. But I had a lot more visits,” Mosley told NFL.com. “At the end of the day, guys don’t know where they’re going to go. The only people who really know are the teams. You have to sit it out and just wait. You might get picked by a team you didn’t even talk to much, you might get traded for.”
Right now, the Bills hold the ninth overall pick while the Ravens sit at 17, which puts both in an awkward position. While Mosley is highly regarded, not many have him as a top 10 pick, meaning the Bills would have to be absolutely enamored with him to pass on some of the other talent available.
The Ravens, on the other hand, are going to be cutting it close by waiting for him at 17. While not considered a top 10 pick, it’s not expected that he’ll last much long after that, so GM Ozzie Newsome will either have to trade up or sweat it out.
