Bobby Massie scouting report


Bobby Massie OT Ole Miss #79
Ht: 6’6″

Wt: 316

 
Strengths:
Prototypical size. Decent mobility; has the athleticism to get to the second level. Strong, physical blocker. Strong upper body, has the strength to recover even when opponents gets into better leverage position. Does a nice job staying low despite his height. Good all-around fundamentals. Quick off the snap and has great footwork to be able to keep up with more athletic edge rushers.
Weaknesses:
May lack the strength to anchor against some of the more physical bull rushers at the next level. Primarily played right tackle at Ole Miss, and may be limited to that position in the pros. A bend-but-don’t break pass protector; gets the job done, but always seems to be cutting it close – may not hold up as often at the next level. Struggles to adjust to delayed blitzes; lacks the athleticism and agility to change direction on the fly. Only one full year of starting experience.
Comments:
Massie has the skills to be an adequate right tackle at the next level. However, while he does everything reasonably well, he lacks the elite skills in any one area project as anything more than an average starter. One thing teams will need answered this offseason from the Ole Miss coaches: why wasn’t Massie playing left tackle? Ole Miss senior left tackle Bradley Sowell was a below-average college lineman and there is no question Massie was better suited to play the position. Is there a red flag somewhere that we’re not aware of which forced them to play him on the right side?
