Curtis Marsh
Round 3, Pick 90
Position: CB
Class:  5Sr
School: Utah State
Conference: Western Athletic
HT: 6-0.5
WT: 197
40 Time: 4.42
Biography: Former running back who moved to cornerback in 2009. Senior totals included 45/2/13 when he was a full-time starter. Made four starts as a junior and finished the year with 32/1/5.

Positives: "Well-sized and athletic defensive back who is still learning the position. Remains disciplined with assignments, displays the ability to drive to the action out of his plant and possesses a burst of closing speed. Fluid pedaling in reverse, quickly changes direction and plays an aggressive brand of football. Fast up the field defending the run, mixes it up with opponents throughout pass routes, and physically defeats them to defend the throw."

Negatives: Displays a poor sense of timing. Loses a sense of where he is in relation to the receiver he is supposed to cover. Not consistent with his defensive back mechanics.

Analysis: Marsh took a quantum leap last season and started to develop as a defensive back. He possesses desirable size/speed numbers for the next level but will need a lot of work before he's NFL ready.

Projection: 4th
