Mason drafted, joining Robinson in St. Louis

Posted: Updated:

Tre Mason heard his name called in the NFL Draft Friday night, and he’ll have a familiar teammate as a pro.

Mason was chosen with the 11th pick in the third round, 75th overall, by the St. Louis Rams, joining his—briefly—former teammate Greg Robinson, who St. Louis took with their second overall pick.

The 2013 Heisman trophy finalist figures to have a real shot at playing time as a rookie. Zac Stacy was the Rams’ leading rusher as a rookie last season with just 973 yards.

Other notable draft picks on Friday:

54. Cyrus Kouandjio, OT (Alabama) – Buffalo

60. Jeremiah Attaochu, LB (Georgia Tech) – San Diego

75. Tre Mason, RB (Auburn) – St. Louis

96. Jerrick McKinnon, RB (Georgia Southern) – Minnesota
