Overview

Mastrud is a good collegiate tight end but may struggle to make the transition to the next level. He does not play the game as fast as he times and will struggle to gain separation vs. good man-coverage linebackers. He is a bit stiff in the hips and knees and struggles to sink his hips to get in and out of his breaks quickly. He is effective when running routes vs. zone coverage and knows how to read secondaries and find the open seams. Looks comfortable catching balls up high. He will struggle with low passes, as he lacks the flexibility to reach down and catch the ball while on the move. He shows effort and good hand use when blocking but lacks the strength to drive opponents off the line. Tends to block with a narrow base, which causes him to fall off too many blocks.


Strengths

Mastrud is tall with a muscular build. Heady player who finds soft spots in zone coverage on underneath routes and shows the ability to set up defenders by using fakes. Does not shy away from contact in the running game and uses his hands to get inside the defender's pads.

Weaknesses

A bit slow getting off the line and lacks the speed to stretch the field. Runs too high and loses momentum in transition, which prevents him from separating in man coverage. Lacks the fluidity to make catches away from his body. Struggles to drive opponents off the ball when blocking and loses balance too often due to a narrow base.

Grade
