Ravens rookie middle linebacker C.J. Mosley grades out as the best LB after 8 weeks

mosleyThe Baltimore Ravens have been looking for a replacement for Future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis since he hung up his cleats.  Well they might have found their man.  Mosley had a monster game on Sunday, despite Baltimore suffering a 27-24 loss in a key AFC North divisional game at Cincinnati Bengals. Mosley was in on 13 tackles, including eight solo, and he intercepted a pass late that looked like it was going to help secure a win. Mosley has now been responsible for 76 total tackles (49 solo) in just the first half of his rookie season, a pace that would leave him at an incredible 152 for a full NFL season.

The NFL’s top-graded inside linebacker by @PFF after 8 weeks: Ravens rookie C.J. Mosley.

According to Pro Football Focus Mosley grades out higher than any inside linebacker in the NFL.  That is pretty impressive, considering he is a rookie. Both Mosley and Khalil Mack of the Raiders have been super impressive this season. Both have been outperforming the number 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney.
