Report: Concerns About C.J. Mosley's 'Longevity' Health-Wise

The list of Alabama players who come into the NFL with health issues is very, very extensive. That apparently hasn’t changed any as after reports of Cyrus Kouandjio’s knee issues raise the concern that he may be pushed down or off of draft boards came reports that star linebacker C.J. Mosley also has ‘longevity’ concerns.


Riddick also followed that up by saying that these longevity concerns are whether or not these guys can make it out of camp, the season, or a rookie contract. Obviously, the hopes for them are pretty low.

If these reports hold true, it’s really sad. The Nick Saban era at Alabama has been extremely prosperous on the college gridiron, but in terms of these guys transitioning to the NFL, they are coming in with serious medical red flags.

You’ve got to wonder what’s in the water down there at Alabama or if this is all merely coincidence.

    Is this based on just Riddick’s opinion or is there a consensus that you didn’t bother to report? With the name of the author’s other website, I have to wonder, unless he is a Syracuse fan, if this wasn’t a story in desperate search of proof rather than the proof first. You know, like actual reporting.

      These little blog stories apparently don’t require much in the order of factual reporting. Opinion is reported as fact, then quoted as sources said, by other little blogs.

    Says who? “Longevity”? How long is “longevity”? This is just more of the same. The riff-raff reporting that’s meant to demean Alabama and Nick Saban.

    Since he says that “they are coming in with serious medical red flags”, who are the schools whose players have this innate characteristic, “longevity”?
