Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BEN MASON: Michigan, 6026 256 4.77. Appeared in 45 career games, starting five, Newtown, CT. Won a team award in 2017 for being the team’s toughest player. Has been used on the defensive line, on special teams, in the backfield as a traditional fullback, and in space as an H-back. He is a throwback-type player who will elevate the physicality of a team right away. An elite power blocker but also shows intriguing straight-line explosion. Was only given the ball on a game-by-game basis one season. He got into the end zone seven times. Also a credible defensive and special teams player who can see snaps there in the NFL. A team will need to be specific with him the way the Ravens use Patrick Ricard. Meanest and most powerful player on the field. Creates tremendous force when moving downhill. Doesn’t need much space to reach his top speed. Will send a violent jolt to whoever he comes in contact with. A reliable and nearly flawless lead blocker with an incredible success rate against lone defenders. Squares his man up, wins the initial contact battle, and keeps his hands inside with a low pad level. Keeps his base wide and active while engaged. Has overlooked and underutilized athletic ability. Was productive as a ball carrier the one year they used him often. Just one rushing attempt and two receptions over his final two seasons combined. Has lateral movement issues. Doesn’t always adjust well in pass protection with an athletic pass rusher moving his way. 2020 stats: 2 rec, 17 yds, 8.5 ypr, 1 TD. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32, H-9 3/8, BP-29, SS-4.44).
