Masoli’s chances at playing in the NFL are less clear.
He threw for 2,039 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his senior season, while also rushing for 544 yards and six touchdowns. He also had an exceptional career at Oregon — accounting for 5,277 yards of total offense and 51 touchdowns — over two seasons before transferring to Ole Miss after being dismissed from Oregon after two run-ins with police over a six-month span.
At just 5-foot-11, quarterback might not be his professional position. At pro day, he threw passes and also caught passes out of the backfield.
“Different teams have different answers,” Masoli said. “A couple of guys might use me in their scheme as a running back or a wildcat guy, or other guys are talking about QB only.”
He said his preference is to play quarterback.
“I’m a QB at heart, but I’m also a baller at heart,” Masoli said. “Any position, I’ll take it.”
