Projections Galore

247 used history to project Mason Rudolph’s 2017 season.

Here are Rudolph’s projected stats for this upcoming regular season: 266.5/413.5 (64.4%), 3,434.3 passing yards (8.3 YPA), 29.0 TD, 9.0 INT, 91.2 rushing yards, 1.2 rushing TD.

These projections show a slightly improved completion percentage and increased touchdown rate (from 6.3% of throws to 7.0%), but worse yards per pass (from 9.1 to 8.3) and interception rate (from 0.9% to 2.2%). That likely speaks more to how difficult it is to maintain the level of efficiency Rudolph was at last year than anything else. While it’s unreasonable to expect that kind of efficiency and explosiveness two years in a row — his 9.1 YPA last year was No. 10 in the country — Rudolph is certainly capable of pulling it off.

With those numbers, Rudolph will shatter the record books – owning nearly everything except Weeden’s insane single season numbers.


Prior to the 2017 class, these are the weights of the signed running backs (per 247): 180 pounds, 170 pounds,  170 pounds and 200 pounds (Chris Carson). They beefed up with the 2017 class.

Physically, however, the players appear ready for the opportunity. King is 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds, while Hubbard is listed at 6-1, 190.

“They’re physical enough to be able to play,” offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said. “They have the frame. They have the strength to be able to be that backup.

“I don’t know if that will happen, but they’re not guys where you say automatically, this guy’s gotta redshirt and put on 20 pounds.” [NewsOK]

OSU’s running backs had somewhat been on the offensive linemen path – gain weight for a year then compete. JD King and Chuba Hubbard appear to be on a different track.
