A nice write up on Mosley:
C.J. Mosley stands at 6-foot-2 and 232 pounds. There isn't a linebacker in the college football who has displayed the type of high football IQ and instincts Mosley has on the field. He displays a great of ability to read the QBs eyes in pass coverage and hit his keys. He has a great ability to recognize route and understands down and distance situations incredibly well. In the run game Mosley uses his football IQ to diagnose the plays quickly and keep himself clean from blockers. He is incredibly disciplined in his reads and this could only be the result of excellent preparation and film study throughout the week.
He is definitely one I would be interested in if we traded down and others we considered were off the board. He's even good in coverage which would make it possible where he would be on the field more unlike all our other inside linebackers not named Brian Cushing. Gives us more diversity and he or Cush could slide outside when/if we use a 4-3 in this new hybrid approach. Depends on who stays and goes in the coming months (obviously).
Plus it would be nice to have insurance in case (knock on wood) Cushing did go down since when he does this team has looked inept on defense time and time again.
