by Zach Sanders on March 20, 2009 @ 04:05:24 PDT

 


University of Georgia wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi will enter the 2009 NFL Draft after playing four seasons for the Bulldogs. In his four years at Georgia, Massaquoi compiled 2,282 yards on 158 receptions and scored 16 times. Massaquoi's best season was in 2008, when he caught 58 balls for 920 yards and eight touchdowns.

During his senior season, Massaquoi was named to the First-Team All-Southeastern Conference team by the conference's coaches. He was also named the Leon Farmer Award winner for his commitment to Georgia's strength and conditioning program.

Strengths

  • 6-foot-1 1/2, 210-pound frame is suitable for the NFL
  • Ability to adjust when ball is in air
  • Elusive after the catch and has good vision
  • On-field leader

Weaknesses

  • Lacks elite top-end speed - ran a 4.60-second 40-yard dash at the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine
  • Hands and concentration - has had problems with dropping balls
  • May struggle to gain separate at the next level
  • Inconsistent

Expected draft placement

Massaquoi projects out as a third receiver in the NFL or a weak No. 2 possession wideout and will be treated as such in the draft. The Carolina Panthers should consider adding a receiver after cutting D.J. Hackett and could look to Massaquoi in the third round at No. 93 overall.

In the fourth round, the Cleveland Browns could see Massaquoi as a replacement for departed receiver Joe Jurevicius and select him at No. 100 overall.

The Houston Texans (No. 108, No. 118), Chicago Bears (No. 115) and the Indianapolis Colts (No. 123) all could show interest in Massaquoi, who should not fall past the Tennessee Titans at No. 126.
