Saints 2021 NFL Draft WR prospect: Terrace Marshall, Jr. – LSU

The Saints need to be interested in Terrace Marshall, Jr. from Louisiana State University. Marshall played with Joe Burrow in 2019 and caught 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 touchdowns with Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase on their way to a National Championship.

This year, without Burrow, Chase, or Jefferson, Marshall still put up 48 receptions for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns. He is a big playmaker at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. There are still things that Marshall needs to work on, but all-in-all he will be a quality receiver in the NFL.

The Saints’ coachings staff will bring around his dropped passes and blocking inconsistencies, but you can’t train size, and he also has tremendous agility, vertical, and hands. The Saints should be able to get Marshall too at the No. 28 pick because of the loaded receiver draft class.

Standing at 6-foot-3, Marshall adds a similar body size as Michael Thomas to the Saints receiving corps. Marshall was a deep ball threat at LSU averaging over 14 yards per reception in each of the three seasons he played at LSU.
