Iman "Biggie" Marshall was an all-everything player at Long Beach Poly in 2014, earning first-team Parade All-American honors among many others. The accolades continued as he stepped into a starting role with the Trojans in 2015, garnering a USA Today Freshman All-American nod with 67 tackles, three interceptions, and nine pass breakups. Marshall continued to shine as a sophomore, putting up an honorable mention All-Pac-12 season (51 tackles, three for loss, three INT, eight PBU). His junior year was a bit rougher because a knee injury cost him three games. Marshall was still an honorable mention all-conference pick despite that malady (52 tackles, 10 PBU). He was a second-team All-Pac-12 selection his senior year as a 12-game starter, failing to pick off a pass but breaking up nine while posting 48 tackles, 5.5 for loss.

Round 4
Overview
Physical four-year starter at cornerback who might need to prepare for a move to safety due to a lack of functional long speed and athleticism. Marshall's size and play strength made life challenging on Pac-12 receivers, but he lacks the foot quickness and technique to stay connected to more refined NFL targets. While he could be in consideration for Cover-2 defenses, his ability to cover tight ends and handle run-support duties make him a natural candidate for a transition to safety.
Strengths
  • Four-year starter with plus size and grown-up frame
  • Offers physical, effective challenges throughout press release
  • Finds receivers shoulders with disruptive press punch
  • Turns and sinks into receiver's frame, forcing him into boundary
  • Uses big frame to constrict catch space in tight quarters
  • Plays through catch point for maximum disruption
  • Reads keys and is ready to respond
  • Aggressive tackler with no downhill hesitation
  • Attempts to make an impression as a thumping tackler
  • Has size, toughness and tools to make the move to safety
Weaknesses
  • Below-average athletic ability
  • Hips are clunky and tight in his transitions
  • Lacks clean feet and loose hips for sudden change in direction
  • Gets turned prematurely in mirror technique
  • Quality route runners will gain separation unless he grabs
  • Penalized 16 times over last two seasons
  • Grabby when he starts to panic
  • Might not have recovery speed to stick around as cornerback
  • No interceptions over last two seasons
  • Lacks agility and explosiveness to make consistent challenges on 50-50 balls
