Im turning draft off soooo disapointed. I was sooo happy that dix had fell. You drafted a guy who wont even play for a year. I'd rather trade back.

ozzie must be going senile, I have never doubted ozzie until now. im even madder then I was when we passed on hakeem nicks for Michael oher. ive vocally been against drafting HHCD, but jesus the guy was expected to go at 13 AT THE LATEST, and he slides all the way to 17, clearly the BPA, better value than mosley, and fills the biggest glaring need on our roster, there is literally no bigger hole on our roster than FS, on the other hand, we traded up in the 2nd for Arthur brown just a year ago, signed daryl smith to a long term contract, and ILB is practically locked up. I am LIVID about this pick right now. worst pick since kyle boller, and this is only the 2nd time since I started following the draft in 06 that I have been mad about any of our picks, I generally believe every pick ozzie makes is a smart one in some way, whether or not it is the player I "like", but this seems like a completely idiotic pick to me. neg away.

I was expecting a free safety,but history says Ozzie knows what he's doing.If Ozzie didn't trade down the pick then chances are this guys a football player.

I think everybody is severely underestimating how good Mosley is.

 

Go watch some tape. Ravens wanted an impact player at 17; well they just got one.

he was trying to trade back, you really think he sat and contemplated that pick for 7 minutes? no he was fielding offers and couldn't find a deal without moving too far back and risk losing any chance at taking a player high enough on his board

Ozzie didn't make this pick on his own. Eric, Harbs, the scouts all had input. How soon people forget teams running the ball down our throat last year. Do you remember Toby Gerhart gutting us for a potential game winning run? Le'Veon Bell among others punishing us on the ground. Mosley will be an outstanding chase guy against the run and be a leader for the defense down the road. Not head over heels in love with the pick but I can respect it.

 

Also consider that we might love a guy like Buccanon or Terrence Brooks for the value. Maybe even trade up if Jimmy Ward get's in range. I predict we get a FS in the 2nd and a WR with one of our 3rds.

Smith is gone after year 2.  He signed a 4 year deal and he's already 32.  They won't keep him when he's 35.  Now you have two guys at ILB that you don't have to sub out for in nickel packages.

Have you guys watched Mosley play?  I didn't watch many guys this year but Mosley is a 3 down ILB.  Those guys are rare these days.

I do indeed, and Brown was one of the many who missed a tackle on that play, interestingly

A solid player, I'm not thrilled. Time will tell. That ends my cliché barrage.

what are the odds we make a move back into the first to get jimmy ward? maybe our 3rd and a 2nd next year for a 29-32 range pick?

lol....this is the first hig IQ player we have picked in a while.

 

I was horrified by the elam pick last year

 

IM actualy pretty happy with this pick. The guy is a football player. Dare i say it, he reminds me of a young Daryl smith in college.

 

We took BPA

 

I have him higher then HA HA and Pryor.

 

Just Get a saftey in the 2nd. Maybe trade up for ward. A DE and WR in the 3rd. RB and TE in 4th.

 

Call it a day

Also consider that Arthur Brown is more of a developmental talent then we originally thought. The talent is there for Arthur to be a good player but Mosley will be a day 1 starter and is ready to go NOW. Much more of a finished product then Arthur was coming out, 2 time captain for Nick Saban.. this isn't a developmental ILB.

Well,

 

I still cannot make sense of the pick but I will trust the Ravens with the pick.

 

I like his performance on the field lets see how well it transfers to the NFL.

 

Like someone else said he's an impact player and if he comes in and makes an impact well that's just dandy.

Like others Im not a huge fan of this pick, but we'll just have to see how it pans out to really complain. And think about it this way, in two years having brown and mosely as our starting ILBs. Both are extremely fast, I actually like the sound of that. As of now, him and brown will rotate in and out. Hopefully ward falls down the boards and we somehow manage to nab him!

Once the top three tackles went off the board, this was my guy.  I heard someone earlier say this was arguably the lowest priority position on our team.  Someone needs to explain that one to me.  We have ONE proven starting ILB on the team, and he is already in the second half of his career.  Mosley is the best ILB in the draft, and we got him at 17.  This pick will benefit us immediately in terms of depth, competition and talent on defense.

 

If we someone managed a way to get Jimmie Ward, as well, I might not even have to watch the rest of the draft.  We win automatically at that point.

being more like a guard, i dont know if that pick would have made any more sense from a 'draft by need' perspective. The front office also said they had mosely as there bpa at pick 10. Hey we'll just have to see how this turns out!

Hate the pick. Haha was right there. And now Jimmie Ward is gone. Would have preferred Ward at 17 rather than Mosley.

He was BPA. Was hoping Fuller would fall further. He was better than HA HA and Pryor, IMO. Dennard or Cooks would of been interesting.

ward off the boards at 30, and I was PRAYING for ozzie to trade up to NE or SF and take ward, and boom, SF takes him. so, what in the hell are we gonna do about safety now???

 

I understandmosley may have been your BPA, but FS is such a ridiculously big need for us, that I just don't see how we passed up both of the safeties. where else are we gonna address this? pick up a scrub or washed up vet who gets cut after training camp so he can come in and be a liability? I know Terrence brooks wont be ozzies BPA in the 2nd, and he wont be there in the 3rd, so we either trust darian stewart(which I don't) or we go with elam at FS again and waste his talent.

Most people considered Mosely a top 10 talent in this draft, maybe not of great value considering his position is being diminished, but still a top 10 talent.  So I could easily see how he was BPA when it came to pick 17.  I just hate it because so many analysts pegged the pick and I love it when some of those guys are proven totally wrong.

I do agree intellectually, BUT man my gut is sick. I am less than pleased from a draft value standpoint/position need for this team. Not saying that I loved Dix at 17 either, but I would have felt a heck of a lot happier with Martin, though as you say only time will tell.

 

I think my pissism is compounded by the fact that Cleveland manipulated themselves quite well in this first round, addressing needs with some stellar potential. 

 

But again only time will tell, and I hope I look back on my grumpiness with a chuckle in a few years.

Great pick I think we will have dynamic LBing duo for years to come. Mosely was the BPA and I think is a better prospect than Luke Kechkly from Carolina coming out of Boston College. PPl dnt worry Arthur Brown will be on the field more snaps this year, but the value was just to high to pass up in my opinion.

Surprisingly with my love affair for Brown and Beckham Jr I'm not mad at this pick. I think Mosley signifies that we may very well be switching to a 4-3 more than a 3-4 like the past. I'm okay with this. I just want Marqise Lee! Please, God, let it happen!

on the bright side, marquise lee has officially slipped to the 2nd round. I would be high as a kite to think he would slip anywhere near our pick, but maybe if he slides a little too far then ozzie pulls the trigger?or on latimer? or maybe we just hold tight and reach for Terrence brooks, or we hope that moses falls to us, or we get the steal of the draft in Jordan Matthews if he falls that far.

 

although if we ignore WR in the 2nd, and Jarvis landry is there in the 3rd, I would boycott the season if we passed on him.

Ozzie and Decosta had Cj Mosely quite high on their big board...most likely at number 1 and obviously higher than ClintonDix. BPA is BPA and Ozzie should have that mantra tattooed on his chest by now. 

 

If this pick was last year everyone in the state of Maryland would be doing backflips and jumping for joy. We left last years draft with a so-so project MLB in Arthur Brown in what was a weak ILB draft class. The fact that we could come in here and finally solidify that position for the future is definitely not a bad way to go. Really the only knocks on Mosely are injury concerns and athleticism questions, he is a very talented MLB who we will most likely get some good use out of this year.

Hopefully we get brooks in the second or elam will be playing FS again. I just don't understand why we did get a S in the first, Pryor and Elam we have been amazing, i would of been fine with haha. I don't hate the pick I jus don't think we really need a linebacker this early,  unless he turns out to be a Luke kuechly or a Bowman. But i'm hoping he can play like he's nfl comparison Lavonte David, now that would be nice

Is everybody upset that we took Mosley in the First round this year or that we took A. Brown in the second last year?  Just think about it for a second because by looking at Moselys game tape, he's a complete monster and tackling machine.  Love the Pick, hate the Brown pick last year.

At some point Ozzie needs to find Flacco some help, but the lack of quality safeties is concerning. They just all started flying off the board fast after we made our choice.

I agree 100 percent udfa aren't going to cut it year in and year out . I hope we do but I'm not holding my breath . I just knew we were going to grab a plug and player receiver, one who can go over 1000 yards and catch a 100 balls a season .when they called ANOTHER lb I was stunned.

The amount of negativity in this thread is ridiculous.

 

Mosley is a beast, not to mention he is a natural born leader and incredibly smart.  Give him a few years and he'll be the leader of our defense.

I watched  Ray Lewis on ESPN as the Ravens picked CJ Mosley. I agree with Ray and Ozzie, they like the pick and so do I.
