 Draft Scout Snapshot: Filling immediate needs was obviously not the Cardinals' priority in this draft. They chained themselves to their draft board, avoided temptation to trade up or down, and took the best player available, regardless of position. Conventional wisdom had them taking an offensive lineman early, but they didn't select one until right tackle Bobby Massie in the fourth round. Instead, Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd was the first-round choice, with Oklahoma cornerback Jamell Fleming being selected in the third round. The Cardinals sent their second-round pick to Philadelphia last summer as part of the trade for Kevin Kolb. Cornerback was the least of the Cardinals' needs, yet they reasoned that it didn't make sense to pass on Fleming. Taking talent over need worked for the Cardinals in the draft a year ago, coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "A lot has been said about last year's draft and some of the players that performed for us," he said. "I think that was a good indication of not necessarily trying to fit a perceived need as far as taking players that were good fits for you." BEST PICK: Tackle Bobby Massie: The Cardinals had to be tempted to take Massie in the third round but were rewarded for their patience when he was there in the fourth. Massie has a chance to start right away. The right tackle job is open, and the Cardinals think Massie has the ability to earn it. - The Sports Xchange

 *Bobby Massie TSX Player News Log
09/13/12 - RT Bobby Massie, the fourth-round pick, played well last week in his first NFL game. Massie did a solid job in pass protection, but like all the team's linemen, needs to improve run blocking.
09/07/12 - RT Bobby Massie, the fourth-round pick, will open the season as the starting right tackle.
08/12/12 - RT Bobby Massie, the fourth-round pick, is coming off a difficult week. He is struggling to learn a new pass setup and he's dealing with a turf toe injury. Massie has not looked good in training camp, but his struggles are normal for a young tackle, coach Ken Whisenhunt said.
07/31/12 - OT Bobby Massie, the fourth-round pick, didn't stand out in his first week of work, but he didn't play poorly, either. Massie is competing with Jeremy Bridges for the starting job. At 6-6, Massie appears to have a problem with getting too high on his pass sets. At least he did in the first day or two of camp. He appeared to improve through the week.
05/18/12 - OT Bobby Massie is expected to contend for a starting job. He was the only right tackle in the three day camp and took every snap there. "It was a learning experience," Massie said. "I tried to pick up on the plays really fast and different defenses. I messed up here and there but I corrected when I could." Massie is expected to contend for the starting job, and will be challenged by veterans Jeremy Bridges and D'Anthony Batiste. "I'm coming here with the mindset to start, but there's a vet (Bridges) who has been here nine, 10 years," he said. "I'm just coming in to learn as much as I can."
05/10/12 - OT Bobby Massie, the fourth-round choice, is going to get every chance to win the starting right tackle's job. The Cardinals gambled in the draft, going with receiver Michael Floyd in the first round instead of taking an offensive lineman, such as tackle Riley Reiff or guard David DeCastro. The Cardinals had Massie rated higher than a fourth-round selection and the hope is that he arrives in camp with something to prove.
04/30/12 - Filling immediate needs was obviously not the Cardinals' priority in this draft. They chained themselves to their draft board, avoided temptation to trade up or down, and took the best player available, regardless of position. Conventional wisdom had them taking an offensive lineman early, but they didn't select one until right tackle Bobby Massie in the fourth round.

04/30/12 - A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 4/ 112 - Bobby Massie, OT, 6-6,316, Mississippi...There was some speculation the Cardinals would take Massie in the third round, but they obviously were smart to wait. The right tackle job is open, and that's where Massie played in his three college seasons. - The Sports Xchange
04/26/12 - ROB RANG'S TOP 50 PLAYERS OF THE 2012 NFL DRAFT: 34. Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi: The vast majority of the pre-draft hype regarding the 2012 offensive tackle class has focused on the talented trio of junior left tackles Matt Kalil (Southern California), Riley Reiff (Iowa) and Jonathan Martin (Stanford). Massie lacks the light feet to operate on the blindside, but he's the elite right tackle in his draft and is battle-tested, having started all three years of his career at right tackle against quality SEC competition. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/12/12 - For the most part, the pre-draft analysis at tackle has focused on the so-called "Big Four" of Matt Kalil (USC), Riley Reiff (Iowa), Jonathan Martin (Stanford) and Michael Adams (Ohio State), with Georgia's Cordy Glenn, who most scouts feel projects better to guard, thrown in as a sort of wild card. Keep an eye on Mississippi's Bobby Massie, who is jumping up some boards the past two weeks, as a potential late first-round pick. Right tackles tend to be a bit devalued in the first round, and Massie (6-feet-6 1/8, 316 pounds at the combine) doesn't seem to have the feet to play the left side, but some teams have taken to him, and he merits a strong look now. Word is that Pittsburgh, which has been linked to Adams in a lot of rumors, likes Massie just as much, if not more. Remember, over the last five years, an average of five tackles have been chosen in the first round, including six in the opening round last year. The position has become a priority. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange
