Terrace Marshall 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Name: Terrace Marshall, Jr.
Height: 6’2 1/2"
Weight: 205 lbs (pro day)
Overall Rank: No. 35 overall
Position Rank: WR6
Strengths: In a class of smaller wide receivers, Terrace Marshall Jr. stands out as a legitimate big threat at the position. At 6’2 1/2” he has the size, length and strength to beat press coverage. And with 4.38-second speed at his pro day, Marshall showed he has the vertical acceleration to stretch defenses. Marshall is consistently fast and runs with a smooth motor. With the ball in his hands, Marshall is able to make enough moves to create space from defenders and pick up yards after the catch. He’s a reliable redzone target as he has the size and leaping ability to climb the ladder to get the ball.
Weaknesses: Durability and a lack of separation skills are the biggest concerns with Marshall’s tape and history. He had a great 40-yard dash time but that didn’t always translate to on-field separation. He can struggle to run away from sticky cornerbacks and doesn’t have the fluid hips for quick cuts. Focus drops are a frustrating part of his game.
What I Love: Marshall is a true big wide out in a class of so many slot receivers. He can post-up defenders and is still raw in terms of what he can learn and become at the position.
