Which Ravens player would you put on the Jaguars roster?

The offense needs help, but the Jaguars needs on defense line up with the Ravens strength.

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a second half collapse in their 27-13 loss to the Houston Texans last Sunday, with much of the responsibility falling on the offense.

Yes, the defense has carried the team for the most part, and the team desperately needs to fix its running game, but if I was going to poach a player off the Baltimore Ravens, I'd still take one their most gifted young defensive playmakers.

Which Ravens player would you take for the Jaguars?

A first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, C.J. Mosley has lived up to the hype. His strength is definitely stopping the run, but unlike Paul Posluszny he's not a liability in pass coverage. And his sack totals don't let on to how good he is at pressuring and hitting opposing quarterbacks into bad throws. He's a legitimate Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate and for good reason.

Granted, fellow Ravens linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs are having better seasons, but for the long-term investment and the need at inside linebacker, I say pick you pick Mosley, immediately upgrade your inside linebacker position, and use a high-round draft pick on a pass rusher next year.

I took Mosely. Who would you pick?
