Weaknesses
Needs to feel the pressure from the blindside better. Has average athletic ability. Average footwork. Shows good competitiveness. Had surgery on right foot (2015) to repair small fracture.

Summary
Mason Rudolph can make throws that WOW everyone. Continues to improve on his accuracy every year, and has come a long way since 2014 when accuracy was very inconsistent. Needs to improve his footwork and fine-tune his overall throwing mechanics to become even more consistent. Has a nice touch-pass. If he continues to improve at the same trajectory during his senior season then he will be in the first round discussion of the 2018 NFL draft.
