Looks really comfortable reaching defenders off his frame on perimeter runs, breaking down in space and keeping them from ever getting a sniff of the play.
Reads and reacts quickly to defenses inside and has a great feel for the run game.
Isn’t the most fluid of athletes and will struggle to maintain balance when asked to quickly change directions. But showcases good pop when asked to lunge into blocks off his frame and can still create a seal for his running back inside. Plays till the whistle and always seems to be working to push the pile, a real team-first guy. Looks comfortable in blitz pick-up as well, quickly locating his target and moving his feet through contact.
Also, can catch the football out of the backfield, but isn’t a real natural plucker and is more of a linear guy with the ball in his hands. However, he can be a solid safety valve out in the flat. Now, physically he isn’t the most dominant guy when asked to drive defenders off the ball and overwhelm them at the point of attack. Possesses good, not great, strength for the position, but relies more so on his coordination, hands and grit to get into blocks and seal in the run game.
Impression: A really impressive fullback who understands angles, has a great feel inside and consistently is able to get into blocks and eliminate his man on contact. Looks like a starting caliber lead guy in the NFL from day one and is one of my favorite fullback prospects in the draft."
On the other side of the ball Marecic has started all 12 games and tallied 45 tackles. Marecic has a nose for the ball and has broken up five passes this season and picked off two. He will even occasionally get into the backfield and do some damage.
The big question is where does Marecic fit in the NFL? He is really a fullback, but he is also one heck of a special teams player who can make plays no matter what the situation may be. For an NFL team that actually uses a fullback, Marecic will be a steal in the fourth or fifth round."
When you have an Opportunity to draft a player who embodies such a ridiculous Fusion of Passion, Ferocity, Processing Speed, Fast Twitch Instinct, and sheer Love Of The Game...you DRAFT him...and THEN you ask what position he plays.
