Featured Prospects

Selected by: Philadelphia Eagles
Round: 3
Pick (Overall): 26 (90)

Pick Analysis: The Eagles take another athletic defensive back with the selection of Marsh. He is a press corner with the size and speed to run with quick receivers on the edge, and his emerging instincts make him an intriguing addition. Marsh should compete for time immediately as a nickel or dime corner for the Eagles.

Overview

Marsh is a high cut corner that struggles in transition, but he has very long arms and could contribute in a press heavy scheme. He lacks the hip fluidity to play in off man coverage, but he is a good presser and is fast enough to turn and run with receivers. He uses his long arms to break up passes even when he is giving a step, and also has the body control and hands to pick off passes. Marsh is a limited prospect due to his tight hips, but he is fast and long and could be a mid-to-late round pick.


Strengths

Marsh is tall with a great frame. Uses long arms to effectively press and reroute receivers at the line. Shows a closing burst when the ball is in the air. Excels in jump ball situations and has reliable hands to make interceptions. Willing tackler in run support that always wraps.

Weaknesses

Lacks the hip fluidity to stick in man coverage and will not be able to contribute over the slot in sub packages. A moment slow recognizing routes and can be fooled by play action. Takes poor angles in run support and struggles to break down ball carriers in the open field.

Grade

5.4
