College Statistics

Player Overview

Coming out of high school, Marshall was the top WR prospect from Louisiana and was ranked as high as number two in the country by some services. As a freshman, Marshall played in 13 games and started one, catching passes in nine games. During his sophomore season, behind future first rounder Justin Jefferson and likely first rounder Ja’Marr Chase, Marshall started in 12 games. Even in that uber-talented wide receiver corps, he was able to bring in 13 TDs. He did suffer a foot injury and miss 3 games that season as well.

Despite LSU being down as a team in 2020, Marshall averaged over 100 yards per game, and began the season in a dominant fashion, scoring multiple touchdowns in the team’s first four games. Marshall cooled off a bit in the next two games, but ended his season on a high note against Texas A&M, putting up 134 yards and a TD on the Aggies before opting out of the Tigers’ final three games of the season.

  • Inconsistent blocker.

Let’s See His Work

How He Would Fit

Aside from quarterback, wide receiver is Washington’s top position of need this offseason. There’s considerable speculation that the team will pursue at least one wide receiver in free agency, but even if they do, there’s a need to spend significant draft capital on the position this year as well. At this point, Marshall doesn’t look to be in the first round discussion, but he could easily be in the early to mid second round one. Things can change between now and April as well.

Washington is set with Terry McLaurin as its number one receiver, and has several larger, slower receivers in the wings (Harmon, Golden-Gandy, and Cam Sims). What it really needs is another speedy outside receiver and reliable slot option. Marshall fits the first bill well, with a player like Elijah Moore or Amari Rodgers being a near ideal fit for the slot role. A player of Marshall’s ability at the WR position needs to be a top target for the WFT during the 2021 draft.
