NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout for the Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles, praised Mosley during a conference call Thursday for his scheme flexibility for the 3-4 or 4-3 defense.
"I think he can play in either defense," Jeremiah said. "C.J. Mosley is somebody I think
that doesn't get talked enough about. When you watch him on tape in scouting we talk about guys being clean players on tape. I don't have a lot of negatives when I watch him. I thought he could play in the 3-4 defense. I thought he could take on blocks better than he gets credit for, and I think he's ideally suited to be a Mike (middle linebacker) in a 4-3.
