Default Brandon Marshall

out of Central Florida. Anyone know anything about him? I heard a bit about him while listening to the combine, measured in in the 6'4'' 230 range I think and I think they said his forty time was around 4.5. I looked up a bit on him and he has only had one really good college season but it was his senior season, he had 1195 yards receiving and 11 TD's. So does anyone know anything about the guy or where he may go in the draft?

I saw him play at the Shrine game and he has really good hands He was clocked at 4.5 in the 40 yd dash. I even got him in my mock draft in a later round.

I like the kid but there's no way he is going in the first, second, third , or even fourth round. He has great potential but a lot of teams aren't going to gamble that early in the rounds for a WR that is just leanrning the postion and has only had one big year (his senior season).

I agree, but was thinking if he is there in the 6th or 7th round maybe take a shot at him just because of his size and speed...

This site ranks him as a fourth rounder.

I think he will be gone by the end of 5th. Like Mathis last year, to much potential for teams to let slide that for down. Someone will take a run at him.

Brandon is a big, strong, tall, powerful receiver. He has very strong hands and catches the ball away from his body. He shows excellent quickness for his size and has a great burst off the line of scrimmage. Brandon does a very good job blocking and shows excellent leadership skills. He looks to be an excellent teammate and at this stage of the draft, does not seem to be on anyone's radar screen except for ours here at THR.

Needs to Improve
Some people will suggest that he might be a TE. Trust me, he is too quick in and out of his breaks to waste at TE, although if you want to put him in the slot on third and long, he will impact.

Bottom Line
I think the most intriguing aspect of Brandonís game is that he has a relativity short stride for such a large person. We are definitely talking about first round talent that should be picked sometime the first day, but you never know what will happen in a draft. Brandonís first step off the line is large, but quick. Then I notice that he never over-strides after that first step. This keeps him on balance to make quick cuts, stops and fakes while he is running his routes at full speed. At his size, he is probably the quickest in and out of his breaks that I've ever seen. This makes his 40-yd speed, no matter what it is, a non-issue. He has very strong "run after catch" abilities along with strong hands -- and is mentally tough. He is also just learning the WR position. He really wants to be ďthe manĒ, but also understands how he should fit in a team concept. Personally I wouldn't hesitate to take Brandon at the end of the first round, but as you all know, thatís just me and not the reality of where a player will actually go in the draft. To be truthful, isnít that what THR is all about -- the ability to project when a player will be taken in the draft? THR is not solely about profiling players. What makes THR so valuable to so many GMís, Head Coaches, Directors of Scouting, National TV Commentators and Player Agents is the over 80% accuracy rating of what round or what day a player is projected to be picked in the draft. So now, I have profiled a sleeper. It should be fun to see how many people agree with me before the draft and then where he gets picked. I think Brandon has big time written all over him. A new Marshall has come to town and heís ready to clean up. His name is Marshall Brandon! (Or is it Brandon Marshall? I always get that mixed up!)

The Huddle Report
I've checked the stats and rosters from the Shrine game. I cannot find mention of Marshall in the game.
Do you have a list of his stats from the game?
