Mason was the sixth Wolverine drafted, joining Kwity Paye, Jalen Mayfield, Nico Collins, Ambry Thomas and Cameron McGrone.

Mason played numerous positions at Michigan during his four seasons but was most effective as a fullback. He scored seven touchdowns as a short-yardage back in 2018 and was a competent blocker — especially in the run game.

His blocking prowess should make him a good fit for Baltimore, which relies heavily on the run game and has utilized a similar player in fullback Patrick Ricard with great success.
