Tre Mason Will Need Wrist Surgery After NFL Draft


Auburn RB Tre Mason was a surprise visitor to the Combine medical rechecks. He will need wrist surgery after the draft, but he should be able to return by the preseason, per Ian Rapoport. This might hurt his draft stock a little bit. At least he will be back for the preseason and will be ready for the regular season.

Mason is one of the top backs available in the draft and many believe that he will be the first back taken off of the board. He was projected to be taken in the 2nd round of the draft and there should be a few teams that will want to bring him onto their roster.

Mason would be an immediate help to a team’s running game and could be the starter if he is brought to the right roster. He is a smaller back, but he produced in the college game and is expected to produce at the next level. The biggest concern around Mason is his durability because of his size. After having surgery after the draft, teams will have more concerns about his ability to stay healthy.
