Overview

Marshall has started every game over the past three years after starting six games as a freshman for Nevada. He isn't very tall, but he is a lanky player and has a large "tackle radius" in which he can make plays on guys by diving from yards away. He led Nevada in tackles in his junior and senior years. There are some issues with his height and athletic ability as it translates to the next level, but Marshall is a sixth-round talent based off his production and energy.

Analysis

Strengths

Marshall is an instinctual player who can diagnose plays quickly and be a quick reactor. He is good to work over tight ends and use his long arms to get in their chest area and disrupt their routes. He also uses his arms well to drop and shed would-be blockers when working laterally, and he has true speed to run down plays to the outside.

Weaknesses

Marshall is a bit short for the position and has a tough time once in his pass set to make plays on the ball. He does have good athletic ability to get into his pass set, but he looks lost at times playing zone pass defense. He is better to work within the box, where he doesn't have to use his instincts against the pass.
