Long Island native, Miguel Maysonet, is looking to impress a NFL team at this year’s combine. He is a 5-foot-9, 205 pound running back who rushed for 7.4 yards per carry and 1,964 yards at Stony Brook University last season. He hopes a team will be convinced enough to use a draft pick on him.
Maysonet thinks he is a running back with a style like former Giant Ahmad Bradshaw, saying: “He’s tough. He never wants to go down, like me.”
The play that defined Maysonet’s college career was a 71-yard touchdown in which he high-hurdled a defender. After that play, many teams sent scouts to Stony Brook in the fall to watch practice and to study him on tape.
If drafted, he would become the first player in school history to be drafted by the NFL.
