Has anybody else seen the clip of Newsome on the phone with Mosley? He's a lot more animated than I've ever seen him before.

And there's this:

Ravens list first-round linebacker C.J. Mosley as No. 57 on their roster. That's former linebacker Bart Scott's old number

No surprise there, he's drafting an Alabama guy...

Good to hear he's signed. And all the noises coming out of the Ravens' camp at the moment sound very encouraging.

Stuff like this:

I'm still not a great fan of the pick, but if he can become a dominant player at ILB, and a leader on the team, then it should be worth it in the end.

Complete side note, my old roommate was trying to trash talk (all in good fun) and say he was another Rolando McLain. Everything I've heard and read about him indicates the exact opposite. It's like 1% of my overall opinion on the thing, but I also really liked that Ray seemed to be a big fan of the pick. He hasn't shied away from being respectfully critical of moves made by the org in the past.

Yeah... I get that he's just trash talking and stuff but... McClain and Mosley couldn't be further apart in how they play. I had only watched a little bit of McClain's film because he wasn't thought to be in our pick range and we didn't have a major need, but what I watched, I wasn't very impressed with at the time. I thought he was a stiff thumper option that didn't attack the LOS well. He was slow from sideline to sideline and was only adequate at taking on blocks. I didn't think he was anything better than above average as a run stopper. But his leadership intangibles were being slobbered over by the media. I chalked my opinion of him up to only watching very little of him and assumed he must've been much better in his other tape. But in hindsight that most likely wasn't the case.

Mosley on the other hand isn't a thumper. Though I think he does a very good job of taking on blocks for a WILB type, he's not great, but is much better at it than most LBers his size. He does a nice job of flowing from sideline to sideline. He's very good and experienced as a coverage LBer.

My only concern with him was that I didn't see him attacking the LOS as much as I think an elite collegiate LBer prospect should. He does flow downhill, but That's likely an Alabama teaching, but I prefer that aggressiveness to be coached out of a player and not the other way around. Though Mosley is still plenty aggressive. Another concern is that I think Mosley is a superior coverage LBer to Arthur Brown... I think he's an inferior blitzer. I don't think his initial explosion is great enough nor his timing to be as effective in that role.

I see a prime Jon Beason when I look at Mosley. Will excel at both ILB and OLB. Very nice cover LBer option that makes big plays in coverage but doesn't blitz the passer as well as you'd like. If he can improve on his pass rushing skillset than I liken him to Navorro Bowman.

Just for reference, I think Arthur Brown compares favorably to Daryl Washington with his pass rushing ability inside along with instincts and pass coverage strengths to boot.

So if both players realize their potential we could be looking at:
Jon Beason - Daryl Smith - Daryl Washington... That'd definitely be a very stacked LBer squad. Arguably best in the league.


Worth noting that in limited preseason action we've seen quite a bit of attacking the LOS from him.
