Richard Marshall - CB

 Richard Marshall Grade: 4.03
 Position: CB
 Class: Jr
 School: Fresno State
 Conference: Western Athletic
 Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 189
 40 Time: 4.47
  Selected by: Carolina Panthers
  Round 2, pick 26 (58 overall)

BIO: All-Conference selection as a junior after leading the team in tackles, posting 78/3/11. Sophomore totals included 61/3/5 including an interception return of 100 yards.

POSITIVES: Physically gifted cornerback who shuts down opponents. Works to get out of jams against opponents at the line of scrimmage, displays good footwork in all directions and loses nothing in transition. Displays a great burst of speed, timing and flashes on the scene. Clings to opponents in downfield coverage, not afraid to mix it up, and is a willing defender in run support.

NEGATIVES: Hesitant in zone coverage. Struggled against top competition last season.

ANALYSIS: Possessing excellent size/speed numbers, Marshall is an athletic prospect with a great amount of upside. Needs to fine-tune his game yet offers starting potential.

PROJECTION: Early Second Round
