Alabama's Mosley now on 5 preseason watch list

Posted: Updated:

Alabama Linebacker C.J. Mosley is now listed on a fifth award watchlist. The 6-2, 232-pound senior is seen on watch for the Maxwell Award, Bednarik Award and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. Today, his name also shows on watch for both the Butkus Award and the Lombardi Award.

According to Alabama Media Relations, Mosley was named first team All-American by the AFCA, Walter Camp, Associated Press, Sporting News and Sports Illustrated. He leads the team with 99 tackles (43 more tackles than the next player), has made 10 starts and is ninth in the SEC in tackles per game (7.62).

Alabama Linebacker Adrian Hubbard also made the cut for the Butkus Award watchlist. In 2012 Hubbard made 41 tackles and seven sacks.

The Butkus Award is given annually to the top linebackers in the nation from high school to professional players and honors the player for "playing clean." The award is presented by the Butkus Foundation and is a non-profit organization that supports the anti-steroid program.

The Rotary Lombardi Award watch list was also released today and it includes four Alabama players. In addition to Hubbard and Mosley, the list also recognizes Junior Offensive Linemen Cyrus Kouandjio and Anthony Steen.

The Lombardi Award is presented by the Rotary Club of Houston and benefits the American Cancer Society. The award is given annually to honor either an offensive or defensive lineman who exemplifies outstanding performance and ability as well as the discipline of legendary Green Bay Packers Coach Vince Lombardi.

According to Alabama Media, in 2012, Kouandjio started 13 games at left tackle, blocking for eight individual 100-yard rushing offense per game. He has allowed only 3.5 sacks. Senior Anthony Steen started all 13 games at right guard.
