The Baltimore Ravens have been delighted thus far in their first round pick from this past May’s NFL draft. With the No. 17 overall pick, the Ravens selected former Alabama University star linebacker CJ Mosley, and he has already shown promise in the preseason and training camp.
Although it is entirely too early to determine how great Mosley can be, he has shown quite a lot of promise displaying his defensive prowess during his time on the field. His play thus far has Mosley in line to start Week 1 for the Ravens against the Cincinnati Bengals, and has fans and pundits alike believing that he can become a future force in the NFL.
Although much of the hype surrounding Mosley has been positive, today we will deviate from the norm and lambast Mosley. Now, let’s make this clear, we are not getting on Mosley for playing bad by any means. In fact, we agree with the pundits suggesting he could win defensive rookie of the year.
Today we are criticizing Mosley for his horrendous autograph. Just take a gander at Mosley’s autograph in this rookie card:

A fifth grader could produce a more enticing autograph than Mosley’s. In fact, you would likely be hard pressed to find a worse autograph in sports than the one above. Mosley does not even attempt to write more than one letter let alone his last name.
To be fair, Mosley likely had to sign quite a copious amount of cards, so this could have been one of them towards the end of the batch. Either way, Mosley needs to step his autograph game up so that when kids ultimately get Mosley’s signature, they are not wallowing in sadness.
