1. Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, LSU
Recently, the LSU receivers who are most commonly known are Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase. Although, both have not suited up for the Tigers since 2019.
In his rookie year in the NFL, Jefferson made the Pro Bowl with 88 catches for 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns for the Minnesota Vikings. Chase did not play his junior year at LSU after opting out of the campaign, but he had projected to be the team’s number-one receiver following Jefferson’s departure. Now, Chase projects to be a top pick in the draft.
Why bring those two up? Because there is a third LSU receiver who does not get nearly the same level of attention, Terrace Marshall Jr.
Of course, this is not new to college football. Plenty of now NFL stars fell under the radar playing for talent-rich rosters in college, just like Marshall. However, Marshall could legitimately be the perfect prospect for the Ravens.
Marshall’s fit would be ideal because he is a physical receiver who can play both inside and outside. As mentioned before in the Moore slide, a receiver with physical attributes who can win balls on the outside seems to be the biggest need for the Ravens.
Listed at 6-feet 3 and 200 pounds, Marshall had two strong seasons to end his collegiate career. In 2019, he had 46 catches and 671 yards with 13 touchdowns playing behind Jefferson and Chase. Last year, he had 48 catches for 731 yards and 10 scores.
Marshall would be perfect because he fills a need, and he is younger and cheaper than going out and signing a similar receiver in free agency. Imagine Jackson throwing to Marshall in the redzone? Could be exactly what the team needs to free up others such as Brown and Mark Andrews.
