Packers are liking what they see in Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley
Green Bay has been lucky and wise when it comes to who they draft, and ESPN’s Rob Demovsky believes that the next in line for the Packers’ draft day success could be Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley.
Neither A.J. Hawk nor Brad Jones can run with the best inside linebackers in the league. So to your point, perhaps that is the better way to go with the first-round pick. Certainly a player like C.J. Mosley of Alabama would fit that description if he were still on the board when the Packers pick at 21.
I have also heard from several people that if C.J. Mosley is on the clock when the Packers select it will be very hard for them to go a different direction, unless there is a player they feel is rated extremely higher. Mosley fits a need on the team, and at the 21st pick in the draft would be considered a steal by many. It is looking like C.J. Mosley could be joining his former teammate Eddie Lacy in Green Bay if he is there when the clock strikes.
