    46 Carries 304 yds 4TDs vs MO one week after doing Alabama for almost 200. Might be someone to look at in the third or fourth.

    Was watching that game and his balance and leg drive are outstanding.

    Tre Mason/RB/Auburn : Tre Mason has been one of my favorite running back prospects dating back to last season. He has a compact build and the burst needed to break off long runs. Mason is a versatile runner capable of working the edges and picking up yards between the tackles. I absolutely love how he finishes each run with power. Mason reminds me of a more explosive version of Ray Rice. To reach that level, he needs to improve his ability to contribute in the passing game. 2nd Round

    Mason, the SEC's leading rusher 1,620 yards and 22 touchdowns on the year, was nearly unstoppable, nearly matching the previous SEC Championship Game record for rushing yardage in just the first half, rushing for 195 yards on 23 carries. By the time he was through, the record 201 yards Justin Vincent ran for LSU seemed to have occurred much longer ago than 2004.

    While Mason lacks the bulk scouts look for in a traditional running back, the 5-foot-9, 205-pounder's compact build, vision and ability to cut and go with underrated power is reminiscent of a young Ray Rice.

    Much of Rice's success at Rutgers and since with the Baltimore Ravens has come from a traditional I-formation attack.

    Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn's attack is hardly as ordinary, helping each of his backs star when given the opportunity.

    Malzahn's shotgun-heavy, triple option attack neutralized Missour's talented defensive line, the most fearsome in the SEC. Using Missouri's upfield burst against them, Robinson and the rest of Auburn's offensive line paved huge holes, allowing Auburn to rush 72 times for a jaw-dropping 546 yards.

    Quarterback Nick Marshall only attempt

    He looks a little shorter and a bit lighter to me, but still looks big enough for today's NFL.

    I would much rather draft Carlos Hyde later on.

    What about his fullback, Jay Prosch? I know it's a spread, but he may be worth a late round pick.

    I was watching Auburn's LT and I noticed that their RB has great burst and change of direction skills. He's really impressive.

    I was impressed watching Mason. I can't help but draw comparisons to Lynch, has a similar skill set but a little smaller. He looks every bit of a great back right now.
