BIO: Four-year starter and All-Conference selection who totaled 82/2/7 as a senior after 120 tackles the prior year.
POSITIVES: Productive run-defender who is best playing downhill. Throws his body around the field and displays solid range to the sidelines. Reads the action, quickly locates the ball and wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Not fluid or explosive. Stiff pedaling in reverse and lacks ball skills in coverage.
ANALYSIS: A long-strider with marginal playing speed, Mason is potentially a backup for a two-deep system.
