Marcus Tillman
Position: DE
Class: 4Sr
School: Mississippi
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-3
WT: 265
40 Time: 4.76
Biography: Four-year starter with totals of 31/.5/5.5 as a senior after 26/6/1 the prior year. Posted a career-best 41 tackles during his sophomore season.

Positives: Athletic defensive line prospect who does not play to his size/speed numbers. Plays with good pad level, fights with his hands throughout the action, and quickly changes direction. Gets off the snap with a nice first step, collapses down the line and chases the action hard.

Negatives: Stiff, displays limited agility in his game and a marginal burst of speed. Slow to react, is late finding the ball.

Analysis: Tillman showed flashes of some ability as a sophomore in 2007 but never took his game to the next level. He possesses the size, growth potential, and speed to play in the NFL yet must quickly elevate his game to make it out of camp this summer.

Projection: FA
