Mississippi Rebels offensive lineman Bobby Massie does the 40 yard dash during the NFL Combine.
Earlier this week we tossed out a few names that the St. Louis Rams could consider with their two early second-roundpicks. Offensive linemen are definitely an option, and one name to keep an eye on is Bobby Massie, a 6'6" 316 lbs offensive tackle from Mississippi. Tony Pauline of SI.com and Draft Insider, says Massie is rising up draft boards as the big event gets closer.
Massie has a massive wingspan, 35 inches, and strong legs. He reads and reacts to plays well, and has nearly three years of starting experience in the SEC. You can read a scouting report on Massie from Pro Football Weekly right here.
With Kalil almost certain to be drafted when the Rams pick in the sixth spot, their best chance to draft an offensive tackle capable of stepping in right away may be at the top of the second round. Holding up Massie side-by-side with Mike Adams, you can see why the later is falling and the former is falling. Adams has the raw talent; Massie has the consistency.
