Byron Marshall RB Oregon #9
Strengths: Elite explosion as he hits the hole. Acceleration is special. Can stop on a dime. Fairly well built for his an undersized back. Plenty of experience in the passing game and could be a weapon from the slot also.
Weaknesses: Doesn’t play in a traditional offense and rare used to run between the tackles. Doesn’t use his size to his advantage, even though he has the build to take a few hits.
Overview: Marshall is among the best athletes in this draft class and can make an immediate impact in the league as a change-of-pace back and a weapon in the passing game. If he develops his ability to run between the tackles, which he has the build for, he could develop into a more well-rounded runner and emerge as a legitimate starter in the league.
