Byron Marshall, WR/RB/KR, Oregon – 2016

Postseason events: NFL Combine.

Positives: Above-average bulk for the position – built more like a running back. Adequate hand size. Runs with above-average speed and burst. Very good stop-and-start ability and moves well laterally. Runs pretty good routes. Generally good hands, and can extend on the move, and has nice body control and coordination on off target passes. Can hold onto the ball with a big hit. Nice open-field vision. Above-average power, and churns well. Versatile and converted from full-time running back to part-time wide receiver in 2014. Above-average upper-body strength.

Negatives: Below-average height for the position. Needs to be more decisive on goal line and in short-yardage situations. Will occasionally body catch. May be contact shy and sometimes short-arms passes over the middle when a hit is coming. Late decisions overall, and often stretches runs too far outside. Inconsistent vision, and misses a lot of cutback opportunities. Below-average balance making big cuts with or without the ball, and will slip often. Below-average track speed at his pro day. Slightly below-average burst and lateral quickness at his pro day measurements. Very poor vertical leap and broad jump at his pro day. Injured leg in October 2015, had surgery, and missed rest of season.

Projection: Undrafted free agent.
