He is a helluva player but 4.60 RB don't go at the top of the draft. IIWII. Here are the 40 times of the top 3RBs over the past 5 drafts.Check out these notable 40 times from their respective combines:
Le'Veon Bell: 4.60
Devonta Freeman: 4.58
Mark Ingram: 4.66
I'm sure there are others, but those are just a few I know of that did not post impressive times. I would think Mason could run at least a 4.60.
He ran a 4.97 too, and 5.0 is actually really fast for an offensive lineman. The Pats use him as a fullback in goal-line sets because of it.Shaq Mason ran a 5.0 and is in the NFL. Speed isn’t everything.
I've also noticed we've been highly productive in the two-back sets. We are developing some sense of identity and I think the play calling has been quality lately.I just watched some of the replays of Mason’s runs. I really like the split two back set from shotgun. It’s reminiscent of the option, but there is no pre-snap motion and the defense cable cannot flow play side as the play develops. It got some really good inside runs.
Choice had way better vision. I don’t think Mason is currently anywhere near that right now. He might get there with more experience though. Guess we’ll see.Does he remind anyone of tashard choice? I don't remember the deuce being real fast but he had Great Cuts and could run inside with Great Cuts and vision, tough?
Choice only rushed for 513 yards at 4.4 ypc as a sophomore. He jumped up to 1473 yds as a JR and 1379 as a SR. JPM is already great and has a lot of room to improve.Choice had way better vision. I don’t think Mason is currently anywhere near that right now. He might get there with more experience though. Guess we’ll see.
