Mosley was the Dick Butkus Award winner in 2013, cited as the nation's top linebacker, after getting 108 tackles and a forced fumble for Alabama last year. And though he might not be asked to contribute right away, it's pretty clear that he'll eventually be a big part of the Ravens defense on -- and off -- the field. The team really likes his demeanor in the locker room and his work ethic wherever he is.
This isn't a pick promised to pay off right away for the Ravens -- he should play a decent amount but will need either Smith or Brown to lose playing time in order to be a factor. He's worth a late pick in seasonal leagues for the beginning of the year in case he breaks out. But his best value is in long-term formats -- expect him to be a middle- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a second- or third-round choice in rookie-only drafts.
With the No. 17 pick in the NFL Draft, the
Mosley is 6-foot-2, 234 pounds, and he will likely compete for a starting job at middle linebacker since the Ravens have Daryl Smith and Arthur Brown. Most likely, Mosley will compete with Brown, but even if he doesn't start he will see the field.
Mosley, the 2013 Butkus Award winner as the nation's top linebacker, had 8.5 sacks and five interceptions and will help the Ravens defense and Ravens DST.
