Philadelphia Eagles draft: Ranking top 3 second-round WR targets
By Smit Bajaj
Marshall might be the next best thing if Philadelphia Eagles don’t land Chase.
Former Bayou Bengal Terrace Marshall has often been overlooked at LSU for most of his career due to the presence of Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson, but the 2020 season was supposed to be the one where Marshall broke out. Unfortunately for the former five-star recruit, wide receivers can’t throw the ball to themselves, and LSU’s abysmal quarterback situation caused his production to be modest.
Still, Marshall has landed on the radar of many teams, with the Eagles being one of them. During his Pro Day, Marshall said that he has been in contact with the Birds. While Pro Day numbers might be a bit overhyped during the draft process, the LSU receiver still dazzled NFL scouts with an unofficial 4.38 40-yard dash.
Standing at a towering six-foot-three, receivers Marshall’s size shouldn’t be able to run as fast as he can. He’s a formidable red zone threat who screams WR1 potential. The Eagles would be wise to select him in the second round.
