Terrace Marshall

He has caught 14 of 22 targets for 116 yards. Averaging 8.3 yards per reception. He is a rookie who is the 3rd or 4th option at best. Not sure what you expected?

Probably what Samuel did last year as WR3? I assume people were hoping for 60-70% of that. Samuel averaged over 60 yards a game. Marshall is at over 19 yards a game.

This isn't hindsight either in the draft thread a number of us were talking about the C's and Smith specifically but other Gs as well. This OL wouldn't be weak at all given those two and rookies at that. LT would still leave a lot to be desired but can actually plan around one really weak spot rather than 4.

Yea was gonna say or even Trey Smif in the 3rd...would be looking better overall as a team but that's not TM's fault and he's still a player. Getting Shi Smith who can play later in the rounds as well makes it looks worse from a team building perspective.

Would much rather have Humphrey and Smith but here we are.

That was what drove me insane. We were making luxury picks when we still had a lot of building to do.

IMO, the staff did not appreciate how critical OL play is. They thought they could dumpster dive their way to an average OL. It just doesn't work that way. Rhule talked all offseason about talent and versatility when it came to the OL. One thing he never talked about was ABILITY. They thought they could mold these guys into good linemen, when that had never been the case in their NFL careers. Then you double down by taking two project offensive linemen who you can't even play on a line this bad.

I have beat the dogshit out of this horse but my God.....this was so avoidable.

If we took Creed over Marshall and Smith over a long snapper we’d have a pretty solid OL and we could have dumped Paradis and saved a chunk of cap space. Woulda, shoulda, coulda but yet again our OL would be young and solid if Brown and BC develop. All we would have lost is Marshall and a long snapper.

i bet anyone on this board can do a better job at Center than Matt f'n Paradis right now.   Good lord...

Samuel averaged 6 targets  per game.  Marshall is averaging 3 per game PLUS he is a rookie.  All I am saying is give him time. Everyone expects instant results. It's not realistic.

Just telling you what I think the expectations were. He had a great preseason so people were pretty hyped. Also, seeing how well his LSU teammates have done probably also set some expectations because of the great preseason.

Also, please stop with the not realistic stuff. There are tons of day 1 and day 2 (and some day 3) instant impact players. It happens a lot. Someone mentioned Creed Humphrey, who’s played phenomenal and was selected after Marshall. I loved Erik McCoy over Greg Little, instant impact in round 2 as well. Some rookies develop, but there are a lot who contribute immediately as well, including Marshall’s teammate WRs.
