Pay attention to Terrance Marshall and Marquez Stevenson if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
Terrace Marshall Jr. is one of the holdovers from an LSU Tigers team that toppled the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide and won the SEC Championship Game en route to a perfect 15-0 record and a College Football Playoff National Championship trophy.
If any quarterback has both Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson to throw to, it’s easy to see why Marshall can get lost in the mix, but this six-foot-four and 200-pound standout hauled in 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 trips to the end zone. His teammate, Mr. Chase, will get a ton of attention leading up to 2021’s NFL Draft, but you can bet money that Marshall will climb a few draft boards as well. He’s one to keep an eye on.
The Eagles have pulled a few prospects out of the Houston Cougars football program before. One of the more recent was Greg Ward, who made the transition from quarterback to wide receiver, but is you’re feeling a bit of deja vu, you should. 2020’s draft wasn’t the first time Philly surprised everyone by taking a quarterback in the first round when they had a clear-cut starter at the position.
They did the same when Donovan McNabb was their number one when they made the decision to take Kevin Kolb with the 36th-overall selection in 2007’s selection meeting.
If anyone at the NovaCare Complex is still paying attention to what the Cougars are doing, they’ve no doubt discovered Marquez Stevenson. He’s six-foot-tall. He tips the scales at 190 pounds, and if the ‘Birds’ are still looking to satisfy their hunger for speed, Stevenson fits that bill as well. He’s potentially one of those guys that can run the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds or less.
