NFL Draft Rumors: C.J. Mosley expects to go in top 10


Former Alabama Crimson Tide inside linebacker has a been a popular topic of conversation leading up to Thursday’s NFL Draft.

The Denver Broncos are flirting with the idea of trading up for Mosley, the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens have supposedly shown the most interest in the former Crimson Tide star and the Minnesota Vikings could target him with the eighth-overall pick.

“I heard top 10, I talked to my agent, I heard eight through 17,” Mosley told Bob Glauber of New York News Day. “But at the end of the day, you never know. Teams trade up, they pretty much know who they’re going to pick, but they’re just looking to try to get the upper hand on other teams. I’m just going to go in with my family and my friends, just have fun and be happy wherever I get drafted.”

The Green Bay Packers are another team who is very interested in Mosley, but would have to trade up to get him.

Mosley made 108 tackles with 9.0 coming for loss for the Tide last season.
