A friend of mine asked me to list up to 5 "top" players for Alabama in 2013. I listed Mosley, McCarron, Yeldon, Cooper, and Cyrus. My friend says Mosley does not belong on the list because he is "situational" player. I say it is nuts to say the team's top tackler by far, a consensus all-American and All-SEC player is not a top player on his own team. You?
Your friend is a moron.
You need new friends.
Does your friend moo?
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
Your friend doesnt know how our defense is run. Tell him to STFU cause Mosley is the best player on our entire roster.
Your friend needs to start watching Alabama football.
Alabama has "situational players" better than any player on his team's roster.
Tell your friend that C.J. is going to add 15-25 lbs in the offseason and play every down next year.
I think the only reason you didn't see that this year is because of his injury.
Also, if by situational you mean 75-85 % of the snaps then yes, he's a situational guy. We just happen to be in that situation a lot.
Considering that Mosley was projected as a first-round talent if he had come out this year, it is probably safe to say that he is a top player next year.

And LBs that can cover and contain are about to become the new hot commodity in the NFL. Mosely is a player that has very high value.

Based on that theory, every AU QB be would be situational - 75-80% of the plays... run 3 plays / punter... run 3 plays / punter....
Mosley, who will be an every-down player next season, is the best defensive player Alabama has returning. I will be very surprised if he's not a team captain next season.
He is absolutely one of the best five players on the team.

I hope Mosely doesn't gain any weight. I thought he was great against the run this year, and any additional weight would hurt his coverage skills.
He is not going to gain 15-25 pounds. Where in the heck did you get that?
He's already an every down backer and 15-25 extra pounds in one off season would only ruin what makes him so good...speed.
Step 1 - Kick him in the nuts
Step 2 - Find a new friend
I would suggest your friend doesn't watch Alabama football games if he is reducing Mosley to a "situational" player. There is not one team in the country that wouldn't love to have Mosley quarterback their defense.
He only plays in defensive situations.
Best 5? He's the clear #1 imo.
Every player who does not play every down of the game is situational.
Coming from a player on the team that has had to block Mosely for 2 years as well as Jarvis Jones and Manti Te'o, Mosely is the best linebacker in the country and by far the hardest to block. Hard to say he's not top 5 after hearing that.
