Draft Scout C.J. Mosley News
05/21/13 - 2013 LOTT IMPACT TROPHY WATCH LIST: C.J. Moseley, LB, Alabama...Consensus first team All-American and first team All-SEC choice in 2012...named first team All-America by the AFCA, Walter Camp, AP, Sporting News and Sports Illustrated...was a finalist for 2012 Butkus Award, presented to the nation's top linebacker, and a semifinalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award (top defensive player). - Alabama football
05/16/13 - Mosely's deflection vs. UGA among Bama's top plays...Alabama has a long list of unforgettable plays in its football history. Here are three: Van Tiffin's 52-yard field goal to beat Auburn in 1985. Barry Krauss's goal line tackle of Penn State's Mike Guman in the 1979 Sugar Bowl. Kenny Stabler's 53-yard run in the mud to beat Auburn 7-3 in 1967. Somewhere on the list there should be a place for C.J. Mosley's defensive play on the last snap against Georgia in last season's SEC Championship game.
Trailing 32-28, Georgia put on a torrid drive in the final seconds. A 26-yard completion to tight end Arthur Lynch moved the ball to the Alabama 8-yard line. Out of timeouts, Georgia decided to run a play instead of spike the ball. Murray called for a fade pattern into the end zone for Malcolm Mitchell. Mosley pressured from the outside and battered the ball in the air. Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley caught the ball on the 5-yard line and time ran out.
It's fair to say that play decided the national championship because in January that same Alabama team would easily dispatch Notre Dame in the BCS title game. "It was just a normal red zone call for us," said Mosley, a rising senior from Theodore, Ala. "The truth is my job was to cover the running back man-to-man. But when Murray threw it I just jumped as high as I could. I thought I had my whole hand on it. "When I saw the Georgia guy catch the ball I knew the game was over. I couldn't believe it." - Tony Barnhart, CBSSports.com
05/04/13 - NFL DRAFT: 'WAIT-TIL-NEXT-YEAR' DRAFT OVER; HERE ARE 21 TO WATCH IN 2014: Seniors...3. C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama: Turned down the chance at NFL millions to return to school. Mosley's athleticism and instincts -- especially in coverage -- will make him an even more coveted prospect in 2013 ... and quite possibly a three-time BCS champion. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange
05/04/13 - 2014 NFL DRAFT: EARLY TOP-50 DRAFT BOARD: 7. LB C.J. Mosley, Alabama (6-2, 232, 4.56)...A versatile linebacker, Mosley is outstanding in pass coverage with a nose for the ball and understands how to put himself in position to win. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/07/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: LB C.J. Mosley has been at his best against spread offenses, but the Irish definitely don't fit that mold, even though QB Everett Golson is a mobile athlete who can run and throw. But Mosley is arguably this defense's top playmaker, able to get after the quarterback or drop back into coverage and make a game-changing interception. The front seven is full of interchangeable parts, but it's at its best when Mosley is having an impact on the game.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "It has not been easy this season and there are several different times we could have let the opportunity slip away, but we pulled together and fought through adversity." LB C.J. Mosley, on the Tide's season. - The Sports Xchange
