The Other Browns Rookie Receiver, With The Hard To Spell Last Name, Mohamed Massaquoi


Written by Daniel Wolf
Article originally posted on Dawg Scooper: An Unofficial Cleveland Browns News Source

Let's spell it out together.

M-A-S-S-A-Q-U-O-I

Mohamed Massaquoi.

Who is the player with the difficult name?

Massaquoi is the Cleveland Browns second, second round wide receiver that was picked in April's NFL Draft.

He was pick No. 50 out of the University of Georgia where he was catching passes throw by Heisman Trophy winner and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Massaquoi finished his senior year at Georgia with 58 receptions for 920 yards and eight touchdowns. For his college career he finished up with 158 receptions for 2,282 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Standing at six foot two inches and weighing in around 210 pounds, Massaquoi has good size to succeed as a wide receiver in the NFL today.

Massaquoi has good speed and that speed was shown may times in Georgia with various deep patterns and long touchdowns throughout his college career.

Now that training camp approaches, Massaquoi has a big uphill battle trying to gain a roster spot by opening day.

The one thing that may benefit Massaquoi is the uncertainty of the wide receiver position after starter Braylon Edwards.

He has the skill set to make the team, but will he be able to outshine other receivers including: fellow rookie Brian Robiskie and veterans David Patten, Mike Furrey and Josh Cribbs to name a few.

With training camp so close, only hard work and dedication will help Massaquoi from here on out.

One false move on the field can cause him to fall into the abyss of the depth chart and never to be seen again....kind of like former Browns receiving prospect Travis Wilson.

  1. I think Mohamed has the size and talent to make it in the pros, but he will not get an active roster position this year, absent injuries. One of the vets will get the most playing time after Edwards and Robiskie, likely Patten.
