PROSPECT SUMMARY – BEN MASON
Ben Mason is one of a dying breed: a true fullback prospect in the year 2020. Mason does offer more than just lead blocking skills—he’s been a special teams contributor throughout the course of his time in Ann Arbor and those reps will prove to be valuable in his bid to make a 53-man roster. Mason should be regarded as a short-yardage and 20 series specialist at the pro level, which will whittle the field of interested teams a fair bit. But any team committed to I-formation and two-back sets will see the appeal in his game and find peace knowing he’ll man the kick coverage units as well.
Ideal Role: Short-yardage specialist.
Scheme Fit: Multi-back, multi-TE offenses.
