NFL Mock Draft 2014: Steelers select C.J. Mosley at No. 15

New, comments

Alabama's C.J. Mosley may just be out of the Steelers' reach at 15, but the three-down linebacker is a tricky position to grade from a draft probability standpoint. He very well could last until 15. If he does, the Steelers would anxiously scoop him up.

It's fun to see what can happen when a little chaos is introduced.

So call NFL.com writer Charles Davis "The Joker." His mock draft, though, doesn't come off as well as Heath Ledger's performance in "The Dark Knight."

Still, it's awesome to read (and watch).

According to Davis, the Steelers watch Alabama LB C.J. Mosley fall all the way to 15, where a team looking to begin really adding athleticism to its defense would happily snatch him up.

Tough and physical linebacker would be perfect fit in Pittsburgh.

Yes. Yes he would. The question is whether Mosley would fall that far. Looking at the impact high level linebackers are still making - guys like Luke Kuechly and NaVorro Bowman immediately come to mind - it's hard to see how the 15th overall pick shouldn't be spent on him. But there are 14 other teams who need to pass over him first. Maybe the first nine teams will. After that, how much longer is he going to last.

Put Mosley on the outer edge of possibility, but don't take an eye off him, either.
