C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama

In today's NFL, it is not common for a 4-3 OLB prospect to receive much attention as a potential first round pick, but Alabama's C.J. Mosley may be the best prospect at his position and he could've come out during last year's draft. Mosley is an all-around, versatile prospect with excellent size and athleticism.

Shows great discipline in staying on his reads and driving to the football in his lane. Fantastic run defender. Downhill style of play. Explosive closing burst. Not a huge hitter, but an effective wrap-up tackler. Tremendous range against running backs. Can make plays from sideline to sideline. Must improve his ability to deflect off of offensive linemen. Will get eaten up by bigger blockers. Usually does well to dig into blocker's chest with inside shoulder while keeping outside shoulder free.

Above-average coverage skills and can hold his own dropping back into zones. Can rush the passer and loves to play aggressive. Will get his hands up and active in passing lanes. Not a natural edge rusher, but times his jump off the line well. Moves very well on the field with few false steps. At his best when staying aggressive. Should be an excellent weak-side LB.

Mosley projects as a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
