Displays a good first step as a pass rusher and possesses the length and upper body strength to eventually shed himself free from blocks. Also is very nifty for a guy his size with the body control to cleanly change directions and accelerate up the field. However, again, is still learning to play with leverage and maintain balance when extending his arms into blocks. Consistently waits until he is engaged to try to start working his hands and allows his pad level to pop upright consistently into contact, keeping him from generating maximum power on his bull rush and/or fighting his way through contact.
Impression: He's a good-looking piece of clay who has a skill set and frame that is NFL caliber. Needs some work, but definitely looks like a draftable prospect on pure upside alone. More of a developmental guy at this stage who could end up paying off big time if you are patient."
Positive: Relatively athletic defensive end who flashes skills as a pass rusher. Breaks down well, fights with his hands, and rarely gets knocked off his feet. Covers a lot of area on the field, displaying good movement skills. Collapses down the line of scrimmage to defend the run and is able to bend off the edge then pursue action from the back side.
Negative: Lacks natural bulk and easily controlled at point of attack. Possesses poor size/speed numbers. Marginally productive on the college level.
Analysis: Marshall is a prospect who shows ability on occasion but needs more consistency. He offers potential as a situational pass rush specialist in a four-man line at the next level."
Craig Marshall needs work on his Technique, as he plays too high too often. This is usually something that can be improved upon, however, with enough Core Strength Training.
And he has a tremendous Frame for this Game ~ 6.5/275 with lengthy arms ~ combined with tremendous Fluidity and Lateral Agility. His Game is certainly raw, but the combination of Extension, Power, and Athleticism is very rare, and if he and the right coaching crew can harness his extraordinary set of skills, he could become a Force.
