The Packers could look to improve the interior of their defense. A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones are both adequate starters at inside linebacker, but Green Bay’s defense has really lacked a true “thumper” since losing Desmond Bishop.

Mosley is the top inside linebacker in this year’s draft. He plays aggressive, isn’t afraid to lay a hit, and has the speed to run sideline-to-sideline. Mosley is the heart of Alabama’s defense and could be the physcial player the Packers need to upgrade their defense.

The only downside to Mosley is he’s a bit undersized and may struggle in the NFL shedding blockers. He’ll need to add bulk to effectively play in the middle of a 3-4 defense.
