    Mace is a decent player with blazing speed. At the next level, outrunning pro defenses may not happen as frequently as in college. Needs to develop holdup skills, playing back to goal, control balls when defenders are in your face. Draftin Mace overall #1 as a fullback looks like Zakiya Bywaters part deux

    McGrady has never finished a college season injury-free. The pros play a much more rugged game. Not sure if she can finish a pro season injury- free. The pros will draft her teammate Cook first, any time any day

    Lot of decent players in this classs but No clear #1 can’t-miss prospect in this class.

      They were primarily touting Mace as a CB, not a FB

      And, as they said, she has skills and athleticism that allow her to play almost anywhere on the field.

      I don’t see a Bywaters comparison at all.

      And, regarding her skills and speed as a Fwd, these are things you can say about any college player. You have to look at her ability relative to other college Fwds, and Mace looks very good in those comparisons.
