2012 POD Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills Select Bobby Massie

Ole Miss Rebels offensive tackle Bobby Massie (79) blocks against the Oklahoma State Cowboys during the Cotton Bowl.

With the 41st pick of Pride of Detroit's 2012 NFL mock draft, the Buffalo Bills select Mississippi offensive tackle Bobby Massie. CLF is serving as the Bills' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below.

In round one, the Buffalo Bills found the best value with a much-needed No. 2 WR in Michael Floyd. In the second, the Bills get value and need at the offensive tackle position by selecting Bobby Massie, an OT from Ole Miss.

Massie stands at 6'6" and weighs in at 325 lbs. He has an arm reach of 35 inches. While a lot of draft boards have Mike Adams ahead of Massie, the Bills prefer a player with no off-the-field black marks. Not only that, but Bobby earned the starting position as a freshman in 2009, a year when Ole Miss had the fewest sacks allowed in the SEC and vaulted Dexter McCluster into the spotlight. Plus, he has a very good history of staying healthy.

Massie has the ability to start at right tackle from day one and may even finally end the revolving door at LT in the future for the Buffalo Bills. Either way, Bobby will improve a much-needed position for years to come.
