The Chicago Bears interest in CUSA.
By now, the news has already circulated that the Chicago Bears are bringing in Mason Fine for a workout. Mason Fine was my first sleeper quarterback before I had watched Anthony Gordon film. I will get very excited talking about this kid, so I want you to remember that he wasn’t drafted, and nobody signed him as an undrafted free agent.
I first had an interest in Mason Fine when I searched seniors entering the NFL draft in 2020. I came across the kid from North Texas and looked at his stats and noticed that he fit the Bill Parcells rule.
Mason Fine was a senior, that had over three years of starting experience. Fine started over 30 games and just won over 23 games by a small margin. He only completed less than 60% of his passes once as a freshman and shatters the 2:1 touchdown to interception ratio. Fine tossed 93 touchdowns to 34 interceptions on his collegiate career.
So what are the negatives? If you haven’t heard, Fine is 5’10 3/4 tall and 190 pounds. You will see some list him at 5’9 and some list him at 5’11. But according to an interview back in November last season, he shared that he was right in-between.
The other negative thing Fine has going for himself is he played at North Texas college. North Texas, Louisiana Tech, UAB, Southern Mississippi, UTSA, Rice, UTEP, Old Dominion, Middle Tennessee State, FIU, Charlotte, Western Kentucky, Marshall, and FAU make up Conference USA. That isn’t the best competition, but it isn’t the worst.
