TBird Posted February 21, 2016 Share Posted February 21, 2016 As a rookie he just missed DROY by 7 votes to Donald. He made the pro bowl team as a rookie but he seemed to enter a sophomore slump with less tackles (not by much) and some not so hot coverage skills as always mentioned by our own T. Sylvestor. PFF seems to agree with him here and gave CJ a bad rating of -4.8. CJ doesn't worry about critics like T. He had an off-season wrist injury that kept him from working out but he didn't use it as an excuse. He also had another good linebacker D. Smith taking tackles from him causing his output to dwindle but he just missed his projection by 17. He's working hard this off season and to improve. In spite of all the doom and not making the pro bowl again he was an alternate for the all star game in Hawaii as his tackles numbers increased in the 2d half and the Ravens defense lost 14 of 16 games by only 8 points. Linebackers: C.J. Mosley, Ravens (-4.8) and Manti Te’o, Chargers (-4.8) Mosley’s grade comes almost entirely from his poor run defense. He had nine total tackles on the day, but only three of them were stops, and those were all in the passing game. Against the run he was just unable to get involved in anything early on in plays, which led to his poor grade. Te’o struggled in coverage, as all six targets he saw were completed for 58 yards. He also missed two tackles on the day, and finished with a poor run defense grade as well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
