The Baltimore Ravens had been eying a trade down in recent days, but they weren’t anticipating the draft to shake out the way that it did. With none of the safeties off the board and only a few linebackers gone, the Ravens had their pick of who they wanted to go after and they used their pick wisely. The Ravens selected Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley.
Fans on Twitter were quick to react:
C.J. Mosley is a gamer, a hitter and a very smart player. Perfect fit with the Ravens.

C.J. Mosley to Baltimore? Ozzie Newsome always finds great talent wherever he picks.
