This isn't a question of if C.J. Mosley is a top-rated linebacker prospect, because he most certainly is. The question is if he makes sense for the Titans.
At one point, Mosley was the most popular pick for the Titans in the first round. With what they are implementing in defensive coordinator Ray Horton's new defense, though, Mosley really doesn't fit in like he did early on.
If the team was sticking with a 4-3 defense for next season, then Mosley would make total sense.
Also, the Titans still need to add to their ability to rush the passer.
Per Jim Corbett of USA Today, Hall of Fame linebacker Dick Butkus sees Mosley as being a great middle linebacker for a team that runs a 4-3 defense. He will be an excellent addition to the team that drafts him, but it most likely won't be the Titans. Sometimes, the pieces just don't fit.
