Round Four

According to most of the draft analysts out there, Mason was the most powerful, and arguably the best run blocking offensive lineman in this year’s class. He played at Georgia Tech, where a pass play was about as frequent as a Peyton Manning playoff win, so his pass protection needs some work, but his skills as a powerful run blocker will be utilized here in Foxboro. Obviously New England will need to develop him, but right now he provides excellent interior depth (which the Pats didn’t have last year), and when they want to go to a six, or possibly even a seven offensive lineman set, they now have an absolute mauler in Mason..
