After going undrafted within the 2022 NFL Draft, Jordan Mason has worked hard to make the San Francisco 49ers roster and today, Mason scored his first NFL touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 49ers needed this win to remain alive for the No. 1 seed within the NFC and Mason’s touchdown helped them get the win and eliminate the Raiders from playoff contention.
Mason has settled into his backup role behind star running back Christian McCaffrey and is a pleasant complement within the 49er’s system. This season, Mason has carried the ball 33 times for 217 yards and is averaging 6.6 yards per carry.
Mason was an easy contributor from the time he stepped foot on campus back in 2018. On just 108 carries in 2018, Mason totaled 659 yards and had seven touchdowns, while averaging 6.1 yards per carry. Mason had his career-best yr in 2019, Geoff Collin’s first yr in Atlanta. He totaled 172 carries for nearly 900 yards and 7 touchdowns. His yards per carry dropped, but Mason was essentially the most effective player on the Georgia Tech offense.
Mason and the 49ers will face the Arizona Cardinals next week of their regular season finale before they head to the postseason.
