RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Ravens drafted Mosley 17th overall last year, and he was all Baltimore could have asked for. Not only did he rank eighth in the league in tackles, with eight for loss, but Mosley also intercepted two passes and improved as a pass rusher by logging three sacks in the final six weeks. After playing 1,065 snaps last year — a huge total for a rookie — Mosley likely will get all the work he can handle in 2015. He underwent a wrist surgery this offseason, but is expected to be ready for training camp.
Even though he's a rookie, there's every reason to believe Mosley will approach LB2 relevance in most IDP formats. The 17th overall pick in this year's draft, Mosley showed exceptional skill at Alabama, displaying ideal play recognition while making plays both as a blitzer and in coverage. The Ravens likely selected him with the intention of making him a three-down player, even ahead of 2013 second-round pick Arthur Brown. Durability is a bit of a concern with Mosley, however – he had significant injuries to his hip, shoulder and elbow while at Alabama. Even if he doesn't play 16 games, Mosley should make his way to 100 tackles.
