Every week, a group of young Alabama players is asked to impersonate specific opposing players to help the first-team offense and defense prepare for the game.
This time around, the scout team’s task is replicating the Tennessee Volunteers attack, and the young man “playing” quarterback Josh Dobbs is an unlikely selection.
That’d be Jamey Mosley, a freshman linebacker and the younger brother of NFL star C.J. Mosley.
The younger Mosley is 6-foot-5, 225 pounds — larger than the 6-foot-3, 207-pound Dobbs — but played quarterback at Theodore High School in Mobile, Ala.
AL.com‘s Michael Casagrande reported that Jamey was taking scout team snaps as Dobbs, who will be perhaps the toughest Vol to slow down when Tennessee comes to Bryant-Denny on Saturday afternoon (3:30 pm ET, CBS).
C.J. was a two-time consensus All-American linebacker at Alabama before the Baltimore Ravens made him their first-round pick in 2014. He made the Pro Bowl — and was second-team All-Pro — after his rookie season.
