The first thing that strikes you about Bobby Massie is that he is big but not sloppy. So often rookie offensive linemen come in and they don’t look the part. Not yet. But Massie, who stands 6-foot-6 (scouting assistant Josh Scobey, below, had to use a mini-ladder to measure him yesterday) carries his 316 pounds well. In some ways, he doesn’t look like an offensive lineman, and when I mentioned that to him, he just smiled.
“Everybody always thinks I play D-end, something like that, or tight end,” Massie said. “People always tell me that.”
Now, don’t take this the wrong way — the man is big and no doubt strong, and in a short conversation (Massie is a nice guy but isn’t going to ramble on) mentioned that he is ready to hit people more than a few times. With rookie camp starting in 45 minutes or so, it will be interesting to see Massie out on the field moving around for the first time.
P.S. Go here for a few pictures of the rookie reporting day yesterday. More pictures from today’s work will come later.
