  • Brandon Marshall - A STEAL!

    Wud up Bronco fans... I am a Fin fan and I go to UCF. I came here to tell you that you guys got an absolute steal . I have watched him play almost every game of his career... and Brandon Marshall is a stud. I wrote this on a couple of message boards before the draft:

    He will be the steal of this draft. I dont know if you guys know much about him, because UCF doesnt exactly get alot of national coverage... but the guy is a stud. He is huge and can physically dominate CBs. He is almost impossible to press... especially for smaller CBs. He is a short strider, so he is much quicker than most his size... and it allows him to get in and out of his cuts faster. Marshall is agressive when the ball is in the air and catches it with his hands and doesnt allow it to get into his body often... And he is great at using his big body to shield the ball from defenders. Also, he is fearless across the middle.

    One thing hurting him is the fact that he didnt play WR his junior year. After the defense was devistated by injuries... B-Marsh was moved to safety in a "Troy Brown" type situation to help out. However, he led the defense that year in tackles.

    Also, the scouts at the combine nicknamed him "Baby T.O." because of his similar size, quickness, and playing style. (Not to worry... Marshall is a great guy, it had nothing to do with off the field issues)

    The guy is an animal. In the Hawaii Bowl(UCF's Bowl game), on the biggest stage he has ever been on... he had 11rec for 210 yards and 3TDs!

    And then followed it up with a 130 yards and a TD in the Hula Bowl(like the Senior Bowl). Throughout that week, scouts and coaches loved him in practice. He was the best and most dominant player all week in practice and in the game as well...
    Great pick for you guys! I wish you guys luck this season, and I will probably come around here more to keep track of B-Marsh...

    If you guys have any questions about him... I could probably answer them too...

    EDIT: 2 more things about Marshall...

    1) He will NOT be playing TE anytime soon. The only thing about him that translates to a TE is his size. Nothing else... His skill set is not that of a TE. He can block for a WR... but he wont be blocking any DEs...

    2) Marshall is a little raw because of his time spent playing safety. He will need a year to develop... but his time spent at safety will end up paying off big time. He has said himself, that playing safety for a year gave him a much better understanding of coverages and improved his ability to read them...

    Hey welcome aboard.

    I do have one question tho, the kid was suspended for something. I remember reading about it, but I don't remember what it was. Care to shine some light?

      Welcome to the boards!

      Thanks for the input on "B-Marsh". Honestly, I've never heard of him until yesterday, but I can't wait to see him in action

        I have heard some about this guy and I hope he can step up and be a #2 or 3 guy in the next couple of seasons. He seems like he would be nice for going over the middle for us. We are also about to lose 2 of our 3 good receivers.

          Thanks... :wave:

          I dont remember what it was... but it wasnt anything to serious from what I can remember. It was earlier in his college career with the old coaching regime.

          Ever since George O'Leary and the new regime took over... he has been fine.

              I've been saying it all along. the guy is like a Mushin Muhammed. I love the kid. He will start and comtribute this year. Believe that . the kid is physical and mean plus he is humble and coachable. My favorite pick in the entire draft.

                          Oh... I dont know if I mentioned this.... but he is a BEAST in the red zone... There is pretty much nothing a smaller CB can do to stop him... He has 1/2 a foot and 30-40 lbs on them...
