New Ravens linebacker
Mosley hardly celebrates at all. Manziel flashes money signs.
But as up-and-coming faces of their respective organizations, they could be a much talked about rivalry for years to come. They already bring a little history from their college days.
“I hope I get another sack on him,” Mosley said of Manziel.
“It’s going to be fun. He was a great player, a great person, so I wish him much success in the NFL with his team.”
Mosley faced Manziel and Texas A&M twice during his Alabama career. Molsey had a monster game in 2012, recording 14 tackles, including the aforementioned sack. In 2013, Mosley notched 12 tackles, yet did not drop Manziel.
Alabama beat Texas A&M in 2013 but lost in 2012. So the two first-round picks are 1-1 against each other so far.
During a Google hangout with Ravens fans the day after being picked, Mosley was asked to name which AFC North quarterback he expects will be his favorite target.
“I guess I’ll go back to Johnny,” he said. “I played against him two years and both games were a battle. He’s just an exciting player to watch and to play against.”
Although Manziel is his closest tie to an AFC North rivalry for now, Mosley does understand what lies ahead when he faces those guys in black and gold – the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“I’m ready to see how it’s going to be,” Mosley said during the Google hangout.
“I always hear about it when they play each other. It’s always physical from way back in the day. Now to be part of it, I guess I can relate it to Alabama-Auburn. So I’m just ready for it.”
