Brandon Marshall 

Post#1 » by JurassicJake » Thu Feb 7, 2008 1:46 pm

When I see this guy play, I am amazed by his combination of skill, size, and speed. While he runs a 4.57 40-time, he's 6-5 230. He is just a monster. Playing this year with 2nd-year QB Jay Cutler and a weak/injured O-Line, a depleted WR corps Marshall still was great and I think pro-bowl worthy. He caught 102 balls for 1,325 yards and 7 tds. He was the only option basically for the whole season as Walker was out a lot and Smith can no longer get open. Watch out for this guy. Dare I say T.O? (without the craziness/insanity/whatever)

Brandon Marshall really stepped it up this year and played very well but I would not compare him to TO. He is not as strong as TO and he actually looks lank on the field a better comparison would be Chad Johnson.

He isn't like eithet player. He is alot slower than Chad Johnson, he dosen't get alot of distance between him and the recievers. But he can get up, and goes over the middle. He dosen't drop nearly as many as TO does either. But I think him and TO are similar players.

He's going to be a problem for a lot of years.

I cant believe alot of teams passed on this guy. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2006 draft.

He is a big, physical possession receiver. But he does have that, WR/DB cocky arrogant, my **** dont stink attitude(which is funny because both positions, might be the most replaceable positions in the league).

Most teams come draft time, are in love with speed. Which is why Anquan Boldin, Marshal, etc are not top notch prospects.

Coming out in the draft Marshall was no where near the better receivers in that draft. Granted that draft was a bit weak in the WR department but he was no where close to Chad Jackson, or Santanio Holmes.

You could also say why did nobody take Marques Colston he is a moster and he was drafted in the 7th round.

Marques Colston - 2 years pro - chosen 252nd overall
Career Totals
Games - 30
Receptions - 168
Yards - 2,240 Avg - 13.3 YPG - 74.7
TD - 19

Brandon Marshall - 2 years pro - chosen 119th overall
Career Totals
Games - 31
Receptions - 122
Yards - 1634 Avg - 13.4 YPG - 52.7
TD - 7

Colston has the better numbers.

You can look back into all of the drafts and find players that have turned out to be great players that were taken in the later rounds.

Tom Brady, Matt Hasselbeck come to mind.
