Ravens’ C.J. Mosley: “I feel like I’m doing a great job”

cjmosley AP

Ravens rookie linebacker C.J. Mosley has seen enough through minicamp and Organized Team Activities to know he fits right in with Baltimore’s defense.

“The coaches feel comfortable with the way I’m playing and comfortable enough that I know the defense,” he told the team’s website. “It’s all about how I feel right now, and I feel like I’m doing a great job.”

Players sometimes say the game gets a lot faster in the NFL, but Mosley, who was voted co-SEC Defensive Player of the Year (with Michael Sam) by the conference’s coaches last year, said he has no problems keeping up.

“It hasn’t really been a big deal for me,” he said. “I would say the only time the game seems fast to me is when you don’t know what you’re doing. When you know what to expect, that’s when the plays start to slow down for you.”

Mosley is clear on what the Ravens should expect: He thinks he’s going to be an impact player as a rookie.

    Bears are garbage. Bank on that. Cutler has been working on his new mechanics. LOL 31 year old still learning how to throw. Theyll never see squat as long as they are in Chicago. Bears organization is done with. And the Jags also. Poor little fans. Time to go back to sunday school.

    It’s good to have self-esteem.

    This guy is already better than any of the defenders in Putzburgh.

    So 1 co-defensive mvp is drafted round 1 and the other round 7. Actually Dan was the only defensive mvp to NOT be drafted in round 1.

    This guy may never equate Ray Lewis type play, but he’s gonna be damn good, you can can’t on that. Can’t wait to see him play. Another awesome pick by Ozzie.

  10. dhardy8207 says: Jun 29, 2014 1:41 PM

    We here in BAMA know first hand that he’s a talented player and has all the skills to make it happen at the NFL level. He’s also a great person, very humble and appreciative for where he is…

    Good Luck CJ!

  11. ravens533 says: Jun 29, 2014 1:58 PM

    I will believe that he is right in making that statement after 2 weeks of training camp with the pads on. But glad he has a positive outlook on things.

  12. brownsmakemecrazy says: Jun 29, 2014 2:02 PM

    Another great pick by the Ravens. CJ Moseley is rock solid. It’s not a mystery why good teams are good, and perennial losers like the Browns blow every year.

  13. ubepunkedagain says: Jun 29, 2014 2:18 PM

    Rolando McClain part 2. You have to give Ozzie credit for all the effort he puts in trying to shovel himself out of the huge talent hole he has put the organization in.

  14. liverpoolred04 says: Jun 29, 2014 2:34 PM

    CJ got run over by Auburn and looked like a fool against Oklahoma…he’s extremely overrated, Bama’s history of busts don’t lie

  15. mtrhead269 says: Jun 29, 2014 3:14 PM

    I hope he has a great career, but who was the last Ala. LB that has had a good career, they seem played out by the time Saban is done with them

  16. bluewinger says: Jun 29, 2014 3:23 PM

    The gmen blew it by passing on this guy.

  17. xinellum says: Jun 29, 2014 3:30 PM

    It would be nice if he had waited until he puts pads on and gets knocked down once or twice before declaring he is ready. And for the individual who feels Alabama linebackers are busts in the NFL, Demico Ryan’s, Jarrett Johnson, Donta Hightower, Courtney Upshaw and have you ever heard of a guy named Derrick Thomas. Yeah, nice you showed your football IQ.

    Your not a true Raven til you get arrested.

  19. loyalraven says: Jun 29, 2014 4:42 PM

    Can you believe the Steelers passed on this dude? They took the workout wonder with no eyebrows and skipped over the best linebacker in the draft. What a joke.. That’s the difference between us Steeler Nation – we know how to build a real team. Pittsburgh fan’s are stuck thinking about yesterday hoping their past will save them. Meanwhile, Ravens nation looks towards the future and sees that Lombardi trophy being hoisted by Joe Flacco next year. Accept your place behind the Brown Stains this season Pittsburgh. You’re done.

    Cute little piece. Did you spend all day composing it?
    Funny how Raven fans are the paper and off season champs but when the season starts they become the chumps they are. The Aravens are getting older and JmpBallJoe is still their QB….the AFCN is still happy.

  23. 6superbowls says: Jun 29, 2014 6:07 PM

    Where in the article above do the words “Pittsburgh Steelers” appear? No where.

    Love how the insecure Ratbird fans feel the need to compare themselves to the Black and Gold. Still looking up to us after finishing 3rd in the division last year. That’s most likely where you’ll be if they don’t address the run game this summer. With Ray “Woman Beater” Rice facing suspension (which he most certainly deserves)’, it’ll be Jump Ball Joe all game long. Good luck with that Jealous Birds.

    That’s right Stoolers fan. Why are you reading this then. Jump ball Joe will be burning your OLD slow defense this year and you will be crying …wah wah

  25. steelerstrong says: Jun 29, 2014 7:22 PM

    Ah the raven faithful. They’re just so cute….. And delusional, insecure, etc…

  26. dickjagger says: Jun 29, 2014 8:50 PM

    Speak for yourself steelerthong. Living in the past, delusion, arrogance equates the steeler-troll way. How long since you guys last made the playoffs (when Tebow knocked you guys out)?

  27. mrpkg says: Jun 29, 2014 9:16 PM

    Pouncey and DeCastro will plant him in the dirt first play September 11 2014 at 8:38 PM.

    Most ghetto franchises in NFL
    #1-packers
    #2- shehawks
    #3- Ravens
    #4- Skins- can’t even say this name without offending 1% of the population

  29. reed20fence says: Jun 29, 2014 10:57 PM

    Casurferho, funny how the ghetto ones are the ones winning super bowls.

    U mad bro?

    The Steelers are the oldest team in the NFL…and SLOWEST.

  31. watermelon1 says: Jun 30, 2014 12:50 AM

    Oh my gosh, everyone shut up about if he can play or not. The season is in September and we’ll see then.

    The bigger issue here is… Are the ravens actually going to field an offense this season?

    How long until Steve smith can’t afabd a other mis-thrown ball and knocks out flacco?

    And lastly, something that actually deals with Mosley… Will the ravens get more pressure on the opposing QB? Because their corners are really lacking after lardarius Webb. Jimmy smith can’t cover faster receivers. He’s not agile. And after him… It gets even uglier on the depth chart.

  32. dcapettini says: Jun 30, 2014 8:29 AM

    All this preseason chest pounding and name calling is tiresome. The proof is in the pudding and they don’t start handing that out until mid September. It is funny how every team has addressed all their issues and has improved mightily since last season. Like Mike Tyson said “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”. When CJ gets “punched in the mouth” we will see how good he is.

    But it’s necessary for the pft website to keep getting ad revenue-generating page views even during the off-season, to which I am also guilty of contributing.

    Talented player, but the buzz during the draft was that his knee problems would make for a short career.

    “Funny how Raven fans are the paper and off season champs but when the season starts they become the chumps they are. The [Ravens} are getting older and [Joe Flacco] is still their QB.”

    1. I never proclaimed the Ravens to be off-season champs at anything, paper or otherwise.

    2. The Ravens did win Super Bowl 47, in case you forgot. They aren’t that far removed from their championship.

    3. The Ravens currently have 9 players on their roster who are at least 30 years old, 7 of whom are expected to start. The Steelers have 12 players currently on their roster who are at least 30, and also have 7 of whom expected to start. How exactly are the Ravens getting older than the Steelers, or any other team in the league for that matter?

    Like any bad comedian, you need some new material.

  36. crownofthehelmet says: Jun 30, 2014 11:08 AM

    If the steelers passed on drafting him, then he certainly wasn’t first-round LB talent.

    – Shazier, Jones & Timmons

  37. sbchampsagain says: Jun 30, 2014 12:04 PM

    Baltimore gutted thier SB team and finished at 8-8 and has some good talent in the wings.

    Meanwhile the Steelers finished with the same record but claim superiority?

    If I were Steeler fans, I’d be more concerned that the Steeelers have been rebuilding for 3 years with no obvious signs of improvement.

    Ravens fans should hope the Steelers hold on to Kevin Colbert as long as possible…

  38. texasbornlsufan says: Jun 30, 2014 12:20 PM

    I was really hoping the Saints would have got this guy but he was long gone. Very good player!!!!!

    Both of these comments are spot on, honest, and best I’ve seen in a while. The rest are so predictable.

    The only person DeCastro has ever planted in the dirt is Pouncey.

    With their affinity for the past, any self-respecting Steeler fan should know that.

  41. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2014 1:06 PM

    if pouncey and decastro even make it onto the field, the won’t get past ngata. cj will be crushing bell all game long
