NEW YORK - NY - Tre Mason found plenty of room to run behind Greg Robinson when they both were at Auburn. Now, they will look to continue their success on the ground in St. Louis as professionals.

The Rams, who made Robinson the second overall pick and first lineman selected in the 2014 NFL draft Thursday night, drafted Mason one night and two rounds later with the 75th overall pick.

Mason sent out the following tweet shortly after getting the call from St. Louis:

"Joining my brother @GRob_92 ! Let's continue to take over! #Rams."

The 5-foot-8, 207-pound Mason rushed for a school-record 1,816 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2013. On his way to becoming a Heisman Trophy finalist, he broke Bo Jackson's 29-year-old record for all-purpose yards with 2,374.
