I posted this back before the NFL Draft…
Mason was among the final cuts for Baltimore, who already have a Pro-Bowl FB entrenched on their roster in Patrick Ricard and a deep TE group (where Mason was competing during TC).

With the Saints releasing Alex Armah, and currently not having a FB, and the uncertainty surrounding the Saints TE corps, Mason would provide a boost to both groups… as well as special teams.
I’m really hoping the Saints will snatch this kid up for the active roster or at least the practice squad. I believe he has a bright future in the NFL for a team that still uses the old school FB.


Ben Mason, FB, Michigan

I have no issue with Michael Burton, and I think he was a solid FB and good presence for the Saints... but he is a FA... and while he was good, he was also limited and has no more real upside at this point. If the Saints were to look for a potential upgrade... I submit Ben Mason from Michigan.

Mason is a beast. He has great upside and untapped potential as receiving FB. He is also a special teams stud... and he even started a game for Michigan on the DL! He can likely be had on Day 3 or as an UDFA.
