Denver Broncos: C.J. Mosley Wouldn't Be Worst First-Round Pick

The Denver Broncos hold the 31st overall pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft. While the team has to wait for 30 other teams to have their turn in the draft, the team may not have the player that they were looking for when they go on the clock. The Broncos are not in a prime position draft-wise, but knowing John Elway he can make things happen in order to draft a player who would be a good fit for a repeat chance at a Super Bowl title. The one player who would seem like a stretch but would do wonders for the Broncos’ defense is inside linebacker C.J. Mosley.

The Broncos have a huge need at inside linebacker. Most experts believe they do not need to draft one right out of the gate on day one. However, if the opportunity presents itself or if Mosley shockingly drops in the draft, the Broncos would be in good hands with the Alabama Crimson Tide prospect. He is a very intelligent linebacker who would make offenses cringe. He has a high football IQ and is smart when it comes to making a play on the football.

He rarely makes any mental mistakes when on the field and has a nose for smelling out the ball carrier. Because he is constantly searching for the football, Mosley can make anything happen in favor of the Broncos’ defense. With those kind of abilities, he has the potential to become one of the most feared linebackers to ever play the game.

There are so many ways the Broncos can go with the first-round pick, but I strongly believe having Mosley on the defense would really put together a strong defense that has the potential to become on of the best units in 2014. Hopefully we will see C.J. Mosley in the Broncos’ facilities when all is said and done.
