As a Senior (2021): Started all 13 games at safety. Led the Terps with 83 tackles (56 solo) and tallied eight pass breakups, one forced fumble and 0.5 tackles for loss. Eighth highest rated safety in FBS via Pro Football Focus (84.2 grade) & second highest in the Big Ten.

8th highest rated safety and he didnt get drafted? There were 19 safeties drafted. Kinda tells you all about the PFF rankings
Mosley looks interesting  
5BowlsSoon : 5/14/2022 7:14 pm : link
I hope he got an endorsement from our DC

His videos look,impressive.
Mosley saw his safety partner Nick Cross ace the postseason.  
Big Blue Blogger : 5/14/2022 7:14 pm : link
Cross ran a blistering 40 in Indy and went to the Colts in Round 3. Mosley had a ho-hum Pro Day and went undrafted, but the Giants must have seen something.

At the very least, in the brief highlights, he looks like he's a hitter and a bit fiesty. Good place to start. The knock on him is his overall athleticism/speed.
it seems 1 of the new preferences is players who play violently on D  
Eric on Li : 5/14/2022 7:30 pm : link
pretty much everyone from Thibs to Corker has that word somewhere in their scouting report. Beavers, Thompson, etc.

I think Wink's defense is going to be a really refreshing tone change from Graham's.
PFF just called Mosley the steal of the draft.

Quite the steal considering he didn't cost a pick, no?
Mosley is physical  
Vanzetti : 5/14/2022 8:48 pm : link
and plays with attitude.

I would agree with Eric about the type of players drafted on defense. They all look like guys who like to hit and like to play football.

they can all blitz  
Del Shofner : 5/14/2022 9:08 pm : link
that seems to be what Wink is looking for

Sure would be nice to see one of our guys make an opponent, offensive of defensive, very slow getting up.
It’d be a nice change.

seem to have a lot of strong safety types... makes me think some CB may be working out at safety too.

I also am starting to think that Wink may not want Love to start but serve as that interchangeable piece that Graham used last year.

also possible they have their eyes on winks former chess piece chuck clark. that is likely a post june 1 trade for BAL but could already be far along somewhere.

Rodarius Williams immediately comes to mind as a safety convert. At the first minicamp the Giants reportedly had Jarren Williams playing safety but that could just have been due to the lack of safeties on the roster at the time.
I don't think teams will look forward  
kelly : 5/14/2022 9:48 pm : link
To playing the Giants anymore. The Giants are going to field a very physical team. If you don't like to hit people you are not making this team.

So glad Wink is going to bring the Giant's defense back to a physical in your face pressure defense.

No more of the candy ass read and react defense .
I truly believe this team will be unrecognizable

looking at Mosley's stats, you can figure out what he does well and what he doesn't do well. He had over 80 combined tackles in his last season, but he only had 12 PDs and 1 interception in four years.

That was the day of the second Giants/Skins game.

Both teams were 11 & 2,and it was understood that the winner of this game would take the NFC title.

The Giants, of course, won the the game - Jay Schroeder threw 6 picks.

Until today, that was Sami's only Giants related anything.

She called me a little while ago with the surprising news that we now have a Giant in the family.

Sami's married to Miles Mosley.

His cousin is Jordan Mosely. Holy Shit, welcome to the family, Jordan

I watched his highlights Wow, my cuz was pretty impressive.

He hits like a maniac.

That's all, I just had to share this bit of cool news with my buds here on BBI.

The comments on this thread are very positive.

Seriously, +++Does he have a chance to make team?

If he does, what are the odds that Jordan and I become good buds, and that he'll be happy to score game tickets for his new bestie, Cousin in Law Jeff?

That's a joke, son, but I am sincere when I say, "Welcome to the New York Giants, Cousin Jordan."



Mosley is a physical player with good size.

Plays run well. Not a ball hawk but I’d like to know % of passes defended. Thanks for highlights Eric.
I hope for all the best and its a tribute  
George from PA : 5/15/2022 6:29 am : link
Making it this far....

But they still has substantial hurdles...making from 90 to 65.

Do they still have the larger PS?

I also expect more roster movement..the more the coaches see what they have ....

Some very crowded position groups
Schoen definitely going against the grain  
RetroJint : 5/15/2022 6:30 am : link
Taking Hoosier defenders . Carl Barzilauskas was selected in the first round by the Jets in 1974. Barzo didn’t exactly light it up but he did have a bar named “Barzo’s Blitz “ on campus . These 2 guys might help . The Giants don’t have any depth at all at S. McFadden is an impact downhill linebacker who can’t be worse than Crowder in coverage or losing his run fit . Nobody can .
Adamg, I was poking fun of PFF and the draft grades  
George from PA : 5/15/2022 7:43 am : link
I view it funny....that so many feel their view is more important than the teams

If they agree with us....they did good.

Yes, Love may play the Logan Ryan role. He could play the deep safety when McKinney moves down in the box.
In past years, there were always guys on the 90-man roster who had no  
Ivan15 : 5/15/2022 11:20 am : link
Chance of making the team. This roster is so bereft of talent that it seems like every player has a shot at least to be a backup.

So many players to sort through that there are bound to be some players cut who turn out to be productive.I don’t know if I can wait for a couple of years until the Giants have a set roster with only a few training camp battles.
They are called highlights for a reason  
gersh : 5/15/2022 12:49 pm : link
But he sure looks physical and athletic at safety. If he was that highly rated and just signed maybe he was weighing his options and he liked his opportunity with the Giants.

terptacular : 5/15/2022 1:22 pm : link
I watch all their games. I went to 4 last year.

You could make the argument that Mosely was the MVP of that defense last year. He is really great against the run and is always where you need him to be.

He may be limited in athleticism as mentioned. But he is a hard nosed kid who will let the opponent know he's there.

I was at that game. Went by bus charter. After the game some idiot Redskin fan starts yelling that he's going to slash my tires. I told him if he's mad enough to drive to North Carolina to slash my tires then go make yourself happy.

Reminds me of something George Will said about why football is the quintessential American sport: "It's violence punctuated by committee meetings."

Corker, Thompson, and Mosley all seem like they will hit hard and make opponents remember the day they played the Giants. Like that attitude that Daboll/Martindale are bringing. Even if we lose it won’t be for lack of effort.
Ryder Anderson is interesting. He's more of a 3-4 DE, I think  
Heisenberg : 5/16/2022 10:56 am : link
than a true Edge. Weighed 277 at the Shrine Bowl. He offers versatility and there's not a ton of depth at DE on this roster.
