The Dallas Cowboys are one of a handful of teams to meet extensively with Georgia wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, TheRanchReport.com has learned.
According to a source, the Chicago Bears will be working out the Bulldogs receiver in less than a week. Then he heads to Tennessee and Dallas for official visits with the Titans and the Cowboys. And he's already worked out for the New England Patriots, who have shown such strong interest in the First-Team All-SEC player that they sent their offensive coordinator and wide receiver coach to Georgia's Pro Day.
Massaquoi has also been drawing interest from a number of other teams, including the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound receiver has prototypical size for the NFL and has been drawing a lot of attention from teams since improving or matching all of his Combine numbers during Georgia's Pro Day. While projecting a fearless attitude about going across the middle to make catches, Massaquoi rang-up 58 catches for 920 yards and scored eight touchdowns during his final year at Georgia.
"My high school coach used to always say that you're going to get hit anyway, so you might as well go across and catch it," he told Scout.com during a phone interview.
Massaquoi's maturity and poise are undoubtedly earning him points with talent evaluators as well. It's obvious that he's a player who's not going to be easily distracted at the next level.
"I'm a guy who will help with the locker room chemistry, who loves to play the game and who loves life," he said.
"Massaquoi is a competitive receiver with good size and skill," notes NFL draft expert Chris Steuber. "He gets a good release off the line, runs solid routes and shows great awareness coming back to the ball.
"While he doesn't possess elite speed, he's able to get vertical and adjust well to deep balls. He also has soft hands and doesn't allow many balls to get in on him."
Massaquoi is currently ranked as the No. 19 wide receiver available in this year's draft according to Scout.com.
