NFL Pro Day - Buffalo Linebacker Willie Moseley
This Tuesday, March 5 at 11 am the Buffalo Bills Fieldhouse UB will hold it's annual pro day. This year there are three seniors of note who perhaps have a chance to end up trying out for a professional team if they have a solid day. Over the Next Three Days Bull Run will cover those three players.
Day 2 - Giving an Offense the Willies
It's hard to share a defensive backfield with Khalil Mack. It's even more difficult if you initially came in as a defensive lineman.
Willie Moseley came to Buffalo as an All-District as a defensive end who, for at least a year seemed destined to play the same position at the collegiate level. In 2009, after one year as a red shirt, Moseley played in a hand full of games as a defensive end racking up three tackles, including one for a loss.
Then came the staff changes of 2010. The new staff dumped the old 4-3 defense and brought in a 3-4 defense. To help fill in at linebacker the coaches took the Athletic Moseley off the line and moved him to the outside linebacker spot behind Khalil Mack.
Going into 2012 it looked as if Moseley would once again be depth behind Khalil Mack but once again Willie demonstrated his ability to be whatever player his team needs him to be. UB still had depth issues, now at inside linebacker, and Moseley was able to fit the bill.
At his third position in five years Moseley Quickly settled in and saw significant time in all 12 UB games, starting many of them.

His best game of the year came against Western Michigan where he put up seven tackles, two for loss, and had a critical interception which helped lift the Bulls over the Bronco's.
Being a starter for just one season puts Willie in a tough spot. Even multi year starters sporting conference honors have a hard time making noise in the NFL draft. Moseley, at this point, may be trying out for other pro leagues and benefit from some of the scouts there for Means and Ozkan.
