Re: Signed TE Jeron Mastrud
This son of a high school football coach brings intelligence (2008-09 Academic All-American), character (named to AFCA Good Works team) and underrated athleticism to the tight end position.
A three-year starter in Manhattan, Mastrud's production took a bit of a dip in 2009 because of the passing game's struggles without QB Josh Freeman, who left early for the NFL. As a junior, Mastrud racked up 38 catches for 435 yards and two scores but only managed 21-233-1 last fall. Big 12 coaches still voted him first-team all-conference because of his solid hands, good speed and blocking ability.
After the season, Mastrud had foot surgery that will keep him out of the East-West Shrine Game and Combine. If healthy enough to impress scouts at a workout, he will be in the mix with a handful of other similar prospects for a mid-to-late round slot.
Other than that I have no clue... Must not have been lighting any fires tho...
