Overview

Wisconsin's starting left tackle the past three seasons, Marz was given honorable mention All-Big Ten notice in 2013 and 2014, and third-team recognition in his senior season due to his strength and footwork in the run game. He started 40 straight games for the Badgers, showing great durability and consistency while leading the way for running backs like 2015 first-round pick Melvin Gordon and giving quarterback Joel Stave enough time to make plays.

Analysis

Strengths

Three-year starter. Shoots his punch with decent timing and placement. Scans for blitz possibilities and processes post snap movements quickly to assess his task. Not the quickest pass sets, but finds his way in front of rusher. Looks for work down the field.

Weaknesses

Plays with little knee bend and his upright pass sets get him knocked back into the pocket by even average bull rushes. Consistent leaner who struggles to sustain and secure without falling off blocks. Doesn't possess athletic qualities to climb and get cut­off blocks. Issues with core strength and bend will always plague contact balance.

Bottom Line

Despite his three-year run as a starter in a quality conference, Marz might not check the strength and athleticism boxes to make an NFL roster. At some point, he might be asked to move inside to guard or maybe even center due to his limitations.
