ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Auburn QB/CB Nick Marshall could be drafted in the middle rounds.
Marshall shifted to CB on Tuesday at Senior Bowl practices. His play drew mixed reviews, but Marshall showed potential at a position he hadn't played in three years. "To do it now, you can say well, yeah, it's risky but NFL teams will understand he's going to be a little raw and he's going to have his ups and downs as he's had so far," Kiper said. "He's had some good moments and some shaky moments, which you expect." Marshall is expected to accept a combine invite. "If he can flash here, which he is, there will be quite a bit of intrigue," Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said. "This is not a particularly storng cornerback class to begin with, so with that being said he might be able to jump into the mix here." We may have given Marshall a late Day 3 grade as a QB, but he should be able to garner a higher pick as a DB. "I think Marshall becomes a mid-round pick, maybe in the third or fourth round," Kiper said.
