Mason Cole

Mason Cole OL07

  Michigan   6040 307 x
Gollin - JOATMON - (i.e. Jack of all trades etc. etc.)... Last year, the Cards learned a bitter lesson about how injuries can shred an offensive line. Although the Cards appeared to be satisfied with Shipley's performance and Boehm's development as backup, it wasn't as if the center position was the strongest OL position. While not an athletic marvel, Cole can play all 5 positions along the OL and brings a lunch-pail mentality to work each day.

USA Today - Versatile prospect with starting experience at multiple spots...Cole has been the anchor for the Wolverines up front throughout his career, regardless of where he’s lined up. His 51 consecutive starts are the most by any offensive lineman in Michigan history...Though the majority of Cole’s experience has been at left tackle, a deeper look at the film shows he might project better as a center at the next level. His frame and arm length are rare for the position, and he looked more effective and consistent as a blocker when lined up inside. Intelligence and awareness make him a strong center prospect, but his versatility will certainly be a bonus for NFL teams...

Lindy's - Jack of all trades/master of none...Versatility and nasty playing-temperment are his calling cards...Squarish frame....With the exception of length/leverage issues has the frame, lower body and thick legs and wide hips suitable for the position...Looks to bury his man/not just block him...High pad level a concern...

PFW - as a tackle - Alert, tough and smart...Plays with good strength...Consistent run and pass blocker...not a top athlete...on the ground too often...short arms...has experience at center and should be also able to play OG.

Combine: Forty: 5.23
