Rams selected Auburn RB Tre Mason with the No. 75 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Mason (5-foot-8 1/2, 207) spent three seasons at Auburn, breaking out as a junior with a school-record 1,816 yards and 23 TDs on 317 carries (5.73 YPC). He managed 19 career receptions and needs a ton of work in blitz pickup, a flaw Mason won't fix quickly if pre-draft reports he needs wrist surgery prove true. Strictly as a ball carrier, Mason is laterally gifted with lightning-quick feet. He demonstrated explosion at the Combine with a 4.5-flat forty, 38 1/2-inch vertical, and 10-foot-6 broad jump. Mason's talent reminds of Ray Rice, but he must improve significantly in all phases of the passing game to become an NFL feature back. Mason also fumbled eight times over his final two college seasons. He would appear to be the favorite for No. 2 duties behind Zac Stacy, possibly marking the end of the Isaiah Pead failed experiment. Daryl Richardson and Benny Cunningham are ahead of Pead on the depth chart. May 9 - 10:14 PM

Auburn RB Tre Mason denied media reports that he will require post-draft wrist surgery.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has been reporting Mason needs surgery to repair a chronic scaphoid fracture in his wrist since last month, and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Saturday that two NFL doctors said the same. Mason has denied these reports several times on Twitter, writing, "I WILL NOT be having any type of surgery on my body! Well and healthy. Media is trying to paint a picture!" Rapoport apparently needs a better canvas, because he added that all six teams with whom he discussed Mason's injury agree that it won't hurt his draft stock any.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports, that teams are being informed that Auburn RB Tre Mason needs surgery to his wrist for a bone that needs to be fused, "that hasn't healed properly."

"The surgery teams have been informed Tre Mason needs is to fuse a bone in his wrist that hasn’t healed properly," Rapoport tweeted. It's interesting to note that, Tre Mason himself has tweeted out that "Once again. I WILL NOT be having any type of surgery on my body! Well and healthy. Media is trying to paint a picture," Mason tweed. At this time of year it's hard to believe everything your reading and perhaps an NFL team is hoping that Masons stock could drop because of this.

Auburn RB Tre Mason and Wisconsin RB James White have worked out for the Dolphins.

Disappointed in RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, Miami signed free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason. The team may not be done with its backfield yet, however. Because the Dolphins aren't desperate for help, it doesn't seem likely that they'd grab Mason in the second round, but a Day 3 pick of a back like White wouldn't surprise.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell believes Auburn RB Tre Mason can be effective in any system.

"Whether it is zoned based, whether it is power based," Cosell said. "Whether you are going to run a conventional offense, with let's say one running back and two tight ends, or you are going to run a little more spread type stuff... I think he can be that guy in any offense." Mason was not asked to pass protect all that often, which is a critical piece in running back evaluations, but he is a physical runner. Cosell considers Mason the No. 1 back in the class.

NFL Films guru Greg Cosell tabs Auburn's Tre Mason as his top running back in the 2014 class.

Most experts have fallen in line behind Ohio State's Carlos Hyde as the class' top RB, but Cosell isn't one of those analysts who succumb easily to groupthink. Cosell believes Mason "can be successful in any system." Former NFL player Ross Tucker, the host of the podcast, said he saw in Mason a "good back who benefited greatly from Auburn's scheme and Gus Malzahn's offense." Cosell countered that Auburn doesn't run a typical spread and Mason proved his effectiveness in a variety of different running formations, proving that he can handle either a power or zone running scheme at the next level. The 5-foot-9, 205-pound back was a Heisman finalist after ending last season with 1,816 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns. He received a third-round grade from the NFL's advisory board after the season.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell says Auburn's Tre Mason is the running back that he's most intrigued with in the 2014 RB class.

"I think he can be a foundation back in the NFL," Cosell said. The analyst isn't alone in his admiration, as NFL.com's Gil Brandt ranked Mason as the draft's best running back in January. The 5-foot-9, 205-pound back finished last season with 1,816 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns and was a Heisman finalist. Mason, who bolted school after his junior campaign, received a third-round grade from the NFL's advisory board. We think that's about right.

Auburn RB Tre Mason's agent, Bus Cook, believes Mason has a chance of being a first-round pick in May.

"Obviously he moves extremely well," said Cook. "We'd love to get him in that first round. That's where our goal is to be. At the end of the day I think he's every bit as good as any other 'back in the country." Mason was given a third-round grade by the NFL's Draft Advisory Board. The 5-foot-9, 205-pound back finished last season with 1,816 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns and was a Heisman finalist. We don't think he'll sneak into the top-40 picks, but Mason won't make it to the fourth round.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt ranked Auburn's Tre Mason as the draft's best running back.

Brandt isn't playing around with his evaluation, either: He continues to compare Mason to Tony Dorsett. "The Dorsett comparison had to do with Mason's unbelievable quickness -- he's the kind of back who can start and stop on a dime and leave you eight cents worth of change," Brandt wrote. Mason, who finished the season with 1,816 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns and was a Heisman finalist, received a third-round grade from the NFL's advisory board. "I would put him more around the second round. You would like to have a running back who's a little taller and heavier than Mason, but he's not a bad size for a running back, at about 5-foot-9, 205 pounds, and anyway, his speed makes up for whatever he lacks in size. It's also true that Auburn's offensive system helps players like Mason be productive, but I believe that his quickness and running ability will allow him to be very effective in whatever system he plays in," Brandt wrote.

Auburn junior RB Tre Mason will declare for the NFL draft.

Mason was the focal point of Gus Malzahn's rushing attack all season and displayed an ability to break first contact, find creases in the line, and fall forward for extra yards. We doubt he has the talent to enter the top-40 picks, but Mason should be a third-round pick at worst. The running back added that is where the NFL Draft Advisory board projected him. He has run well for two seasons now.

Auburn junior RB Tre Mason is not ready to announce his NFL decision.

"Emotions are everywhere right now. That's not really what's going through my head right now," he said. "That decision will probably come later on, but right now I'm not thinking of that." Plenty of running backs are deciding to enter the draft rather than return to school, and Mason has the tackle breaking ability that is coveted in the NFL. He is also very good at finding small creases and falling forward.

Asked about breaking Bo Jackson's 1985 school record of 1,786 rushing yards, Auburn junior RB Tre Mason said: "It would be a lot better if I was holding up that crystal ball."

Mason rushed for 195 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries in a 34-31 loss to Florida State in Monday's BCS National Championship game. "I feel like I let them down," said Mason. "It's always going to be remembered, but it's always going to eat me up inside that we had beaten some of the top teams in the nation and fell short at the very end. It's pretty much like a book that was written. It was a crazy story." Mason said he will discuss his options with his family before deciding on whether to declare for the NFL draft.

Auburn junior RB Tre Mason rushed for 195 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries in a 34-31 loss to Florida State in the BCS National Championship game.

He also had a receiving touchdown in the first quarter. Mason didn't slow down after rushing for nearly 500 yards in his previous two games against Alabama and Missouri. Mason filed for an NFL draft evaluation and is considering bolting Auburn early. "Mason should intrigue clubs that employ passing-down backs on a more regular basis," NFL.com's Albert Breer wrote last month.

An NFC GM thinks Auburn junior RB Tre Mason is a system back.

"He's a solid runner, but my gut is the offense is really the engine that drives the production," the GM said. An AFC college scouting director said that he saw, "good speed, balance, burst and vision" when Mason tacked 164 yards on Alabama and 304 yards on Mizzou, but added that Mason is slight. "Bottom line:," wrote NFL.com's Albert Breer, "Mason should intrigue clubs that employ passing-down backs on a more regular basis."

Auburn junior RB Tre Mason rushed for 304 yards and four touchdowns on 46 carries in the school's 59-42 win over Missouri.

Mason was the bell cow in Auburn's rushing attack, which is the foundation of their offense. He has been impressive all season while getting skinny through holes and making decisive cuts with speed. Many will say he emerged as a Heisman contender tonight.
