Cowboys’ Potential Draft Pick: Miguel Maysonet, RB, Stony Brook
At NBC, I posted a scouting report on Stony Brook running back Miguel Maysonet.
While I’m generally a proponent of using a running back’s college stats to grade him, it doesn’t carry as much weight for small-school prospects. Sure, Maysonet’s 7.36 YPC is impressive, but it’s not standardized in the same way that it would be for, say, a prospect coming out of the SEC.
That’s why measurables can be so important. We’ve seen Maysonet dominate inferior competition, but what does that really tell us about his game? He looks to have moderate speed on tape, but the 40-yard dash can tell us more about his long speed than just guessing it from his film. Maysonet was invited to the Combine but couldn’t work out due to a hamstring injury, but he ran between a 4.59 and 4.65 and his pro day. He also recorded a 31-inch vertical, 8-11 broad jump, and 4.27 short shuttle. In short, he’s not a terribly explosive player.
