1. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama – 6-2, 234 pounds
Why he makes sense: Selecting C.J. Mosley would allow for taking the best player available and would provide a significant upgrade at inside linebacker for the Packers. Mosley has great instincts and has the ability to quickly diagnose a play. His ability in coverage is something the Packers lack from their current linebacker group. His versatility and physical brand of football would be a welcomed addition in Green Bay.
Why he might not: Mosley has some durability concerns. He has had some injuries at Alabama, but nothing that kept him from putting together an impressive collegiate resume.He also might have a hard time turning and running with more athletic tight ends. He is better in zone coverage. Finding reasons not to select Mosley are more difficult than finding reasons to just go ahead and make the pick.
