    Whats everyone think if we draft Mosley instead of taking the Notre Dame lineman? Wheeler and ellerbe sucked and both should have been arrested. Mosley is a stud linebacker. I know it is not the preminium position nonsense. I see no downside to this guy whatsoever. Our run defense sucked last year. This guy would be a huge upgrade.

    It's a possibility and we get the OT or OG in the 2nd round.
    BTW - don't be too quick to write off Ellerbe. He can be a decent player. We are stuck with Wheeler. He is a ridiculously expensive backup but his 2nd year payment ballooned and is guaranteed. (Thx Jeff)

    I would not make that pick. Give Ellerbe another year in the system, and he should be fine. Wheeler sucks and should be replaced with Dion Jordan.

    Would be very happy with Mosley merely from a position standpoint.

    Heart says Mosley but head says lineman. Ok, forget it, just watched the sack video again...heart and head on same page, lineman.

    Its either him or Shazier imo. I think Hickey will try to find another Lavonte David.

    The only problem I have with Mosley is Bama's history of LB's recently.

    I doubt Mosley will be there at #19, that's why I am mocking Martin to the Phins, but I would be happy with Mosley. I have us taking another mike linebacker in round two...Borland of Wisconsin.

    I'd love Shazier

    But OL or even TE is a better pick than Mosley at 19. Hickey and the FO he was apart of found David in 2nd round, he can do it again.

    Mosley is my dream pick, so much depth on the oline in this draft, and no other ILB is close to mosley in this draft.

    I'd love a quality NFL LB with that pick. I'm kind of up in the air if he is the guy or not. I'm leaning toward taking him, well hoping they take him it's not like I have much say :(

    The defense badly needs what I hope he is. As previously stated there appears to be a lot of decent OL in this class and I think they have a good chance of adding some value to the OL later. Also figure they just added Albert.

    I, for one, am not impressed by Mosley. The guy was surrounded by talent, and basically every step of the way he didn't have to clean up anybody's mistakes. I just don't think very highly of the guy.

    Please explain further? I haven't seen anything about teams taking him off their boards for medical issues (and that tends to get leaked)

    Getting Mosley moves Ellerbe to the outside and Wheeler to the bench. That in itself is worth considering the pick.

    When it comes to Mosley.. I'm probably higher than anyone on this board on him, but the injury concerns (dislocated hip, and elbow) are too much to consider him in the first round. But in the 2nd round? Absolutely. I really see a Navarro Bowman type player. Plays faster than timed speed, and has outstanding awareness in pass coverage (rare for a MLB). Doesn't it seem like almost ALL of the Alabama prospects enter the draft injured or with injury concerns?

    Shazier is the definition of a "run and hit" linebacker. I'm not crazy about measurables, but 4.3 40 and 40 inch vert is absolutely insane. And that athleticism is evident on tape. He is constantly making plays and is a four down LB (meaning a star on special teams as well). I would say the one clear department that Shazier is better at than David is pass rushing. Shazier can turn the corner and rush off the edge. David isn't on Shazier's level there. Yes, Shazier struggles to disengage and separate in the run game, but he, just like David are 4-3 wills exclusively. That's not an issue because you cover him up (especially in an under front with a 3 and a 5 tech on the weakside). You don't draft him for his ability to get off blocks.. You draft him for his rare combo of instincts/ athleticism.. This guy can run all day long...

    Mosley won't be there for the Fins in the first round let alone the second.

    Why don't you think he'll be there at 19?

    It does seem that way, Saban's hard on those guys. Maybe because they're in the hunt for the national championship every season and they players feel as if they can play through the injuries to get a ring? Really not sure but it's pretty alarming.

    He's one of those defensive players (along with Barr) who is climbing draft boards across the league and that trend will continue going into draft day barring injury or something totally unforeseen. There are some players that are going to rise and others that will fall from where most people expect them to be now; Sammy Watkins for example will fall out of the top 5 (but not the top 10). There really are not many question marks over Mosley and if you are drafting top 15 you don't really want a boom or bust prospect - if the Fins get him at 19 that would be one of the steals of the first round.

    Let me put it this way, how many, start-straight-awaay 3-down ILBs are there in this class? And how many are needed right now across the league?

    Mosely is a starting MLB from day one who could go probowl. I take him anyday. Martin I think would be better at OG. I dont think phins need a guard.
