Final Note:

Marlon will have to prove that he can be an effective interior rushing back to earn himself a starting role.  Most see him as a change of pace back that can surprise a tired defense with his big play ability. Marlon had a nice combine in the drills and having 4.5 speed is good enough in my books. Most scouts see him as a sleeper with upside potential in the right system. He’s projected to land in the 3rd to 4th round.
