C.J. Mosley lands on first-team in Baltimore, for now

The top position battle for the Baltimore Ravens comes at inside linebacker, where 2014 first-rounder C.J. Mosley squares off against 2013 rookie Arthur Brown.

The first officially unofficial depth chart has been issued for the Ravens, and the winner (for now) is (no drum roll necessary if you read the headline) Mosley.

That doesn’t mean Mosley will be the Week One starter.  And it definitely doesn’t mean that Mosley will be an every-down linebacker.  Last year, Brown contributed in the nickel package by covering receivers.

“Arthur is playing better now than at any point last year,” linebackers coach Ted Monachino recently said. “As a cover linebacker, still can be dominant down-in and down-out, but as a run-game linebacker, he’s playing very well.  What you see out of him is the result of a lot of great preparation in the offseason.”

Elsehwere, Courtney Upshaw and Elvis Dumervil are listed as co-starters at the “Sam” linebacker position, Brandon Williams is the starting nose tackle, and friend of PFT Chris Canty remains a starting defensive end.

On offense, Rick Wagner is in line to be the post-Michael Oher right tackle, and Jeremy Zuttah has taken over the starting center position.

    In the immortal words of Bart Scott;

    “Can’t Wait!”

    Given the tremendous respect the Ravens have for O.J. Brigance, Mosley should consider it an honor to wear #57, and it shows how highly they think of his potential.

    Too bad the Broncos can’t throw 7 TDs on these clowns again

    DROY. Book it

    Mosley will be a bust. He couldn’t shed blocks in college and got routinely pushed around in the run game. Ray Lewis he is not…

    CJ Mosely is a complete LB. He is very good against the run, blitzes well and is excellent in coverage. I doubt he leaves the field.

  8. Steeler Nation is so far above you and your lowly franchise. We built this league. Pittsburgh's three rivers are made from the tears of our opponents. Bow to your supreme overlords. says: Aug 6, 2014 8:11 PM

    They plan on putting these guys out on Sundays? Really? Wow. Pathetic.

    How long has it been since Pittsburgh won a playoff game?

    Mosley is too weak against the run.

  11. hakunamangata says: Aug 6, 2014 9:05 PM

    Too bad the ravens can’t escort those broncos out of the playoffs again enroute to a Lombardi trophy against an NFC west opponent.

    How’s it go again? Sticks and stones, may break my bones but you think one regular season game is going to hurt me after we won a championship going through your house?

    well, they play the Steelers twice. won’t really matter who we put out there then. it will be two ravens blowout wins

  13. jmblosser82 says: Aug 6, 2014 9:45 PM

    Scoobs, the Steelers own the AFCN, only one to have a winning record against all the other teams. Both games will be close 4 point games in the high teen low 20s, expecting a split.

    I believe you mean Arthur Brown of Kansas State two years ago, not Art Jones of the Indy Colts

    Bronco fan talking smack? Funny!

    Mile High Miracle then 43-8. You’d best calm down, son.

    Broncos fans, no one wins a SB in week one no matter how many touchdowns you score against a transitioning organization coming off a SB appearance after 5 straight postseason appearances and 3 AFCCGs in five years.

    Just like no matter how many TDs Seattle beat the Broncos by, they would’ve only received one Lombardi trophy!

    Mosely will be exposed, starting tonight.

  18. sbchampsagain says: Aug 7, 2014 10:18 AM

    Mosely wont have to shed blocks. Just like Ray didn’t have to.

    Four words:
    Brandon Williams, Haloti Ngata.
