Overview

Massaquoi entered the 2008 season as a solid three-year contributor for the Bulldogs, averaging 33 catches for 454 yards and three touchdowns from 2005-2007 and piquing the interest of NFL scouts. The tall, smooth receiver stepped up his play considerably as a senior, catching 58 passes for 920 yards and eight touchdowns, while also extending his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 33.

The breakout performance earned him first-team All-SEC honors from the conference coaches. His coaches and teammates, however, appreciated Massaquoi as a leader as much as a player -- especially in the way he served as a mentor to star freshman A.J. Green. Had an arm span of 33 1/4 inches and a hand span of 9 7/8 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Prototypical NFL build for the position. Good height and surprising overall musculature with the frame to add additional mass. Possesses at least adequate straight-line speed to challenge deep. Can throttle down to separate from defenders. Long arms which he extends well to make the tough reception. Flashes good leaping ability and body control to snatch high passes out of the air. Good vision for the cutback. Good elusiveness for a receiver of his size. Good size and strength to run through arm tackles and create positive yardage after the reception. Stepped up his level of play as a senior. Became a vocal and on-field leader as a senior. Negatives: Simply drops too many passes. Prone to lapses in concentration or not looking the pass into his hands before trying to make a defender miss. Allows passes into his frame too often, resulting in some ugly bounce-backs. Bit of a long-strider with build-up speed. Lacks elite foot quickness and agility to consistently gain separation from NFL-caliber cornerbacks. Tends to disappear for long stretches.
