NFL experience: 4th year
One of many former Tennessee football players to overachieve in the pros, Emmanuel Moseley went undrafted after the 2018 NFL Draft. After signing with the San Francisco 49ers and being cut early, Moseley re-signed to the practice squad and eventually was able to make his way onto the active roster later in the season.
By the halfway point of the 2019 season, he became the full-time starting cornerback for the franchise and hasn’t relinquished his role yet. A model of consistency, Moseley suffered from playing under Butch Jones and on a defensive staff that had no chemistry his last two years at UT.
At 5’11” 190 pounds, Moseley has 17 starts over the past two years and has appeared in 28 games. He has two interceptions, 17 pass deflections and even two tackles for a loss on his career. Overall, he has 98 career tackles, 77 of which were solo.
Simply put, Moseley is a model of consistency and the perfect fundamental defensive back. He wasn’t able to play the full season last year, but he still appeared in 12 games. This season, he should be a full-go, and after helping San Francisco reach the Super Bowl his first year as a starter, he’s already proven a lot.
