anyone have any info on him? he seems like he could be a good fit for MLB, a playmaker perhaps. id be interested in trading down and getting him. MLB seems also to be a pretty safe position to pick

If we pick up a middle linebacker, what's going to happen to Marshall? If he moves back over...where does that put Rocky? Granted, I haven't been able to see too many games this year, but is Marshall playing that bad in the middle, or is it that the rest of the D is sucking so bad that he looks bad.

fact is marshall isnt making many plays. he would be a good backup for all 3 positions.

I think Marshall has been solid but nothing more. I think we miss Pierce's leadership and by all accounts Marshall's strong suit isn't being a leader. Physically he is smallish so he struggles against the run. I think he is better suited to play the weakside where he can make more plays in space and utilize his speed and agility personally. I would like an upgrade in the middle and to get Rocky in there. I am concerned about Rocky's lack of playing time. Seems ominous to me when do-nothings are getting the action and he isn't. Maybe this weekend was the beginng.

But overall I think we have greater needs elsewhere on D. A safety, starting level corner, another nickleback type corner, a tackle with push, and a end who brings something(anything please) to the table opposite Carter.

We are getting old on D and if ROcky is any indication it takes a lot of time for young guys to gain Williams' confidence enough to play. We need to get guys in now so they can be ready before we get too old.

Marshall has played like garbage this year, but a lot of that has to do with his coming off shoulder surgery. He filled in admirably for Pierce last year. I still favor him as a weakside linebacker in certain packages rather than as an MLB.

Willis is one of the top 2 lbs, but he's probably not in the top 10 overall.

Last Sunday I heard Marshall's name when I saw him get head faked by LJ Smith BURNT for a TD with 3:09 left in the 1st Q...
