Baltimore Ravens rookie LB C.J. Mosley has constantly been around the football in practice and is showing a ton of potential in the Ravens defense. His impression in training camp has people talking about him as a possible defensive rookie of the year candidate.
Here is a report from ESPN’s Jamison Hensley:
The Ravens have to feel like they got two first-round picks this year in inside linebacker C.J. Mosley and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. Mosley is continually around the ball, and Jernigan is constantly in the backfield. If Mosley makes the same types of plays in the regular season, the Ravens’ top pick has a shot at being the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Jernigan, a second-round pick, has been sidelined recently with a back injury. But it’s not expected to be long term, which is a big relief for the Ravens.
Mosley has plenty of talent around him. With Jernigan getting attention up front, Mosley will be able to run around to make plays in the backfield. He has a nose for the football and will make plenty of plays on defense. Can’t wait to see him on the field this preseason.
