Best Raven: C.J. Mosley

It can’t be easy to come into Baltimore as the heir apparent to legendary middle linebacker Ray Lewis. That’s just what happened for inside linebacker Mosley, the Alabama product drafted by the Ravens in the first round of the 2014 draft, and he more than impressed. On his way to finishing second for the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award, Mosley racked up 89 solo tackles, three sacks, eight passes deflected, and two interceptions. At only 23, Mosley has already become a crucial part of the Ravens’ typically stout defense, and he should only get better as he earns more experience.
