Tyron Johnson Praises ‘Pro’ Approach of Mason Rudolph

During Big 12 Media Days, Mason Rudolph was asked about his newest (and only) five-star target — the one who has been in Stillwater sitting on the sideline for a year awaiting eligibility after transferring from LSU.

“Tyron Johnson’s going to surprise a lot of people,” said Rudolph “just because his make-you-miss and change-of-direction ability.”

If he surprises us after the Tyreek Hill-level offseason hyperbole attached to his name, what are we actually going to see?

“In the open field, I think he may be the best receiver we have right now with the ball in his hands with people in front of him,” Rudolph said as he raised the hype bar two levels higher.

Whether or not you consider that doing him a favor depends on Johnson’s actual on-field results. But the obvious second coming of Dez Bryant returned one anyway to his senior partner in the passing game.

“It’s like catching balls from a pro,” Johnson told PFB. “I mean, he’s a pro guy. He treats his body like he’s in the pros. He treats his passes like he’s in the pros.”

Johnson followed up his praise of the Cowboys’ Heisman hopeful with some insight into a receiver’s mentality when running routes for QB1.

“He throws to a spot,” said Johnson. “Line mark, not players. So, it’s up to the receiver to get to the spot that [he]’s throwing it.”

With Rudolph’s arm and the talent occupying those line marks, this should be a fun season for Oklahoma State fans.
