    Strong Points: Tall with some length. Physical in coverage -- tries to reroute receivers with a strong jam. Stays low in his pedal and turns. Plays man or off, mostly keeping good position. Reacts well to the ball in the air. Solid run-support corner and sure tackler.

    Weak Points: Questionable top-end speed -- won't gain ground in pursuit. Short stride for a taller guy. PBUs but few interceptions. Might not be sudden enough to play corner in the NFL.

    The Way We See It: Marshall was a four-year starter for USC, where he played fairly consistently throughout his career. He is physical and plays the run well, and has coveted height and length but might be a bit stocky. His movement skills are OK, but he isn't very smooth. He can play press, off and zone, off least effectively. He shows a good jam and mirror skills, but I don't see great wheels. A few times when in long pursuit, he failed to close the gap. He might not break 4.55 when he times. I also question his ball skills, as he gets his hands on some but hasn't picked a pass off in two-plus years. Ultimately, if Marshall can't hold up at corner, he might be moved to safety, where he easily would be physical enough and his man-coverage ability vs. big tight ends would be a plus. It says here he doesn't have starting potential at corner.
