Redskins selected Georgia RB Keith Marshall with the No. 242 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.
Marshall (5'11/219) exploded onto the scene as a true freshman in tandem with Todd Gurley, before tearing his ACL as a sophomore and earning limited playing time for the rest of his career. Marshall finished his four years at Georgia with a 253-1,379-12 (5.5 YPC) rushing line and 24-225-3 (9.4 YPR) receiving. He rehabbed his stock at the Combine, blazing 4.31 with 25 bench-press reps. Tentative on the field after his ACL tear, Marshall has regressed since his freshman season. Marshall's intrigue is derived almost entirely from his workout metrics. Apr 30 - 6:20 PM

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. wrote that Georgia RB Keith Marshall "made money with a 4.31 40 time [at the NFL Scouting Combine]."

Kiper's, ahem, on the money here, as Marshall showcased an elite speed factor that particularly stood out in a week where multiple 40 times by multiple players fell short of expectation. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that the 5-foot-11, 219-pounder "stole the spotlight" from more heralded runners, while colleague Dane Brugler noted post-combine that Marshall "has better plant-and-go burst than most backs." In Kiper's eyes, "He's no certainty for Day 2, but times like that can't fall too far."

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler noted that Georgia RB Keith Marshall "has better plant-and-go burst than most backs."

Brugler wrote that Marshall "hits the accelerator [with] ease." The 5-foot-11, 219-pounder was one of the true standouts at the NFL Scouting Combine last week, wowing evaluators with a sizzling 4.31-second time in the 40-yard dash. A torn ACL in 2013 sidelined the former five-star recruit, and it didn't help that he had to jostle with Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb for carries after he recovered. As a result of his lack of exposure, he's something of a draft mystery man. An NFL evaluator recently compared him to Dolphins RB Lamar Miller in that aspect. After his warp-speed 40-yard sprint, CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that he "stole the spotlight" from the rest of the backs on hand.

In a conversation with Yahoo Sports, an NFL evaluator compared Georgia RB Keith Marshall to Lamar Miller "in terms of pedigree, measurables, speed and limited college opportunities."

The evaluator went on to say that Marshall could have a similar profile to Miller in the NFL. Marshall, who your boys at Rotoworld have been pulling for hard during the process, ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.31 seconds) of any offensive player at the NFL Combine this year. He did so at a manly 5-foot-11, 219 pounds. Oh, and he's also a former five-star recruit who shared carries with Todd Gurley for one season. So why are some readers out there hazy about who he is? Because Marshall's body betrays him at every turn, specially his knees and ankles, obviously ominous for a runner. Most famously, Marshall tore his ACL in 2013.
Mar 4 - 6:21 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang wrote that "by wowing scouts with his blazing speed and power, [Georgia RB Keith] Marshall stole the spotlight from the higher-rated backs of the 2016 draft."

Marshall not only blazed his way to a 4.31 time in the 40-yard dash, he also turned in 25 repetitions of 225 pounds in the bench press. If you haven't heard much about him, don't feel too badly. The 5-foot-11, 219-pounder not only had to fend with Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb for carries, he also tore his ACL in 2013 (it's a law that if you play running back at Georgia, you will suffer a significant knee injury). Marshall received 68 carries last season and turned them into 350 yards and three scores. Without much statistical production on his ledger, the nice combine numbers are all the more important as he looks to squeak into the tail-end of the draft as a possible Day 3 selection.

Georgia RB Keith Marshall produced a 4.31 forty at the NFL Combine.

Marshall burst on to the scene as a freshman alongside Todd Gurley. Injuries derailed his career, but Marshall returned to the field this year and looked solid. Standing at 5-foot-11 and 219-pounds, Marshall also led the running backs in bench press reps (25). He added a vertical of 30 1/2-inches and a 10 yard split of 1.53. Marshall could be a mid-third day pick if the medicals clear.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline calls Georgia RB Keith Marshall a sleeper who is going to run an eye-opening forty.

"One of the sleepers at the running back position is Georgia junior Keith Marshall," he wrote. "Early in his career, he struggled with injury, then fell out of favor with the coaching staff. I'm told to expect times in the 4.4s from Marshall on Friday." Once upon a time, Marshall actually carried the (mythical) "fastest running back in college football" title. Due to numerous ankle and knee injuries over the years, Marshall was held to 1,379 yards over his career (759 yards and eight touchdowns as a freshman). Todd Gurley used to lose carries to this kid. If his body isn't broken, it may still possess some of that special talent.

Georgia HC Mark Richt anticipates getting senior RB Keith Marshall (knee/ankle) back on Saturday against Georgia Tech.

Marshall missed last week's win over Auburn. It was the first game he'd missed all year, which is good news if you know his medical history. Marshall, who has decided to move on to the NFL after this season instead of requesting a medical redshirt, hasn't been this healthy since he was a freshman in 2012. We hope his body can hold up at the next level. The talent has always been there.

Georgia senior RB Keith Marshall will officially move on to the NFL after this season rather than requesting a medical redshirt.

Not to make a joke in bad taste, but Marshall deserves two medical redshirts for how many injuries he has dealt with during his career. Marshall entered the college scene next two Todd Gurley, and the two looked like a dynamic duo who would run over the SEC for years to come. However, Marshall battled injury after injury. He does look better this season, and more importantly, healthy.

Georgia senior RB Keith Marshall is generating buzz inside the program, according to Bruce Feldman.

Remember him? Marshall produced a quality freshman season alongside Todd Gurley but injuries have taken their toll since. Sophomore Nick Chubb will absolutely see the lion's share of carries, but Marshall could be his backup and make an impact, as the Bulldogs will try to run over defenses.

Georgia senior RB Keith Marshall returned to practice when the school opened their preseason activities.

Marshall tore his ACL in 2013 and did not play after the the third game last year while dealing with ankle and knee injuries. A hamstring injury then kept him out of spring activities. Marshall joined Georgia in the same class as Todd Gurley, rushing for 759 yards as a freshman. It has been downhill since, however, coaches seem optimistic in the backup this season.

Georgia junior RB Keith Marshall did not travel with the team to Kentucky due to an ankle injury.

Marshall's comeback season is turning into a lost one. After missing a large portion of last season with a knee injury, Marshall was expected to contribute this year as part of Georgia's loaded backfield. Instead he has missed the last five contests, and today will make it six. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will shoulder the load.

Georgia junior RB Keith Marshall will miss Saturday's game against Florida.

Marshall is dealing with a sprained ankle and sprained knee. After looking like a major contributor during his freshman season, Marshall has dealt with a number of major injuries. Nick Chubb and Brendan Douglas will share the backfield against the Gators with Todd Gurley suspended.

Georgia HC Mark Richt is "not optimistic," junior RB Keith Marshall (sprained ankle/sprained knee) will play Saturday versus Arkansas.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Marshall is currently dealing with a sprained knee, as well as a sprained ankle. On Sunday, Richt mentioned that he was hopeful Marshall could return after missing the last three games for the Bulldoggs. Marshall, was injured during the second half of Georgia's 66-0 win over Troy on September 20th.

Georgia junior RB Keith Marshall, who is dealing with a sprained knee, could play against Arkansas.

Marshall has also been hobbled by a sprained ankle. Head coach Mark Richt indicated Todd Gurley will practice this week, but his availability for the upcoming game is undecided. Marshall, who flashed talent before a terrible knee injury, could offer a nice change of pace for Nick Chubb.
