Some prospects transferred at one point in their collegiate career. Even more NFL players are cut at least once in their professional careers. But few prospects are playing for a program that ends up being cut by the school. Maysonet fits in this category, as he started his career at Hofstra in 2009 just before the sport was removed. He led the Pride in rushing that season, tallying 385 yards and three touchdowns.
Maysonet was not forced to redshirt after transferring to Stony Brook and heavily contributed during his sophomore year. In 2010, he rushed for 1,128 yards and 12 touchdowns on 176 carries. Maysonet added 99 receiving yards on nine carries. The next season he continued that momentum, rushing for 1,633 yards and 15 touchdowns on 252 carries. Finally, as a senior, Maysonet topped it off with 1,964 yards and 21 touchdowns on 267 carries. His lack of receiving opportunities showed, since he only caught 18 passes for 191 yards in the last three seasons combined.
Sees snaps from single back, I formation, and pistol. Decisive upfield cuts to continue forward momentum. Sees front side lanes even if run calls for different gap. Determined runner, little wasted movement, makes a choice and sticks to it. Refuses to go down on first contact, takes some big hits because of it. Patient on zone read and sticks with mesh point. Always churning his legs, that's his best quality, never stops. Rarely anything fancy. Protects the football confidently and absorbs contact. Has enough long speed to sustain.
Runs a bit upright, arms flailing to keep balance on occasion. Rarely looks back side for cut back lanes. Eyes can be bigger than stomach in terms of hurdling tacklers in the open field. Does not possess break away speed. Lacks creative quickness to create when stopped behind the line of scrimmage.
Maysonet's collegiate career was abnormal, but he was extremely consistent on the field. While on the path to not missing a game in the last three seasons, Maysonet set multiple records due to an aggressive and decisive running style. He isn't flashy and hasn't shown passing down ability because of limited repetitions, but he could produce as a ball carrier if given an opportunity.
Future Hall of Famer
A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
