Miguel Maysonet (RB), Stony Brook

5-9 | 209 lbs. 

2012 Stats:

267 ATT, 1,964 YDS, 21 TD

Projection:

4th-5th round

Strengths:

Maysonet was highly productive for the I-AA Sea Wolves as he never missed a game in his three seasons there. Tough, downhill runner for a back his size. Rarely goes down on first contact and is always fighting for the extra yard. Doesn't do anything flashy but is very decisive with his cuts. Has good but not great speed (4.55 40-yd dash) and solid ball security. 

Weaknesses: 

He's not the type of runner that will make anyone miss. Doesn't have that home-run speed to break away in the open field. Not quite polished as a pass catcher and pass protector. Questions about whether he could continue production from I-AA to higher levels. Runs too upright and sometimes holds ball away from body.

Fit for the Bears:

The depth chart for Chicago at the RB position doesn't look favorable for Maysonet. If he had better third down skills, there's a chance they could take a flyer on the Stony Brook product in the 5th. The Bears did send scouts to his Pro Day so they have done their homework on him. If they did select him, he could compete with Armando Allen and Harvey Unga for the third spot on the depth chart and work his way in on special teams.
