Mason Stokke is a 2021 NFL Draft RB Prospect

Mason Stokke is a fullback from Wisconsin and a prospect for the 2021 NFL Draft. Recruited as an outside linebacker, Stokke converted to fullback during his 2018 redshirt sophomore season. He appeared in 28 games at the position from 2018-2020 (out of 34 total), starting in his final two seasons. He did not appear as an OLB prior to the position switch, missing 2017 with an injury and redshirting 2016.

Stokke had a limited role outside of blocking for the Badgers. His 19 carries in 2020 were a career-high (in only seven games), and he ran for 45 yards and a touchdown. He also caught eight passes for 58 yards and three touchdowns, all career bests. For his Wisconsin career, Stokke ran 38 times for 109 yards and three touchdowns and caught 14 passes for 105 yards and three touchdowns.

Pro Football Focus graded him the 10th-best FB (with at least one rush attempt) out of 18 graded in 2020, with a 70.0 overall rating. He received grades of 61.5 (Rushing), 76.3 (HandsFumble), and 73.3 (Run Blocking). His Run Blocking score was second-best among all 18 players.

In the NFL, Stokke projects as a starting fullback on rushing downs for teams who employ one, as both a blocker and for occasional short-yardage carries.

Measurements

At the College Gridiron Showcase, Stokke measured in at a height of 6022 and a weight of 244 pounds, with 9 4/8″ hands, 32 2/8″ arms, and a 75” wingspan. At Wisconsin, he was listed at 6’2″, 239.

Highlights

 

Positives

  • Runs like a power back, with fluid, powerful strides and no hesitations. Would have no hesitations lining him up as a traditional tailback in short-yardage situations.
  • Leads with upper body to punish would-be tacklers, while keeping ball secure.
  • Quality speed for his size, won’t blow faster linebackers away in open field but will be steady source of yardage. Compares favorably with many power backs.
  • Impressive drive with lower body, as a runner to push forward and as a blocker to clear lane.
  • Stays low as blocker, able to get leverage underneath man and lift up to drive.
  • Able to adjust to throws delivered high.

Weaknesses

  • Inconsistent receiver, doesn’t make all the routine catches.
  • Inability to adjust to throws at or below waist-level.
