Physical four-year starter at cornerback who might need to prepare for a move to safety due to a lack of functional long speed and athleticism. Marshall’s size and play strength made life challenging on Pac-12 receivers, but he lacks the foot quickness and technique to stay connected to more refined NFL targets. While he could be in consideration for Cover-2 defenses, his ability to cover tight ends and handle run-support duties make him a natural candidate for a transition to safety. — Lance Zierlein

With Baltimore set at cornerback for the 2019 season, this is a great future pick which could pay dividends. Marshall is a bit raw and has been penalized frequently in his past two seasons (16), but with some development and mentorship from the best cornerback room in the league, Marshall may turn out to be a solid option in the future.
