Auburn backup quarterback Jeremy Johnson says senior QB Nick Marshall will win the Heisman Trophy.
"He led us to the national championship, and we were 13 seconds away," Johnson said. "And this year he got better at passing, better at running, better at making reads. He’s become a leader on this team and I’ve never seen him so amped at practice every day the way he is, the way he comes out. So, I know for a fact he’ll win the Heisman." Marshall is certainly a frontrunner after collecting 1,976 passing yards, 1,068 rushing yards and 26 total touchdowns last year. He will not start in the opener against Arkansas as punishment for offseason marijuana possession charges. Aug 17 - 11:20 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall is "not as accurate on the move and had a number of passes knocked down at the line of scrimmage a year ago."

"Marshall is not as accurate on the move and had a number of passes knocked down at the line of scrimmage a year ago, two areas that must improve in 2014 if he is to be a legitimate quarterback candidate for the NFL," Rang wrote. While there is no denying Marshall's "agility, speed and arm talent," when he sets his feet - the "ball explodes out of Marshall's hand, according to Rang. The Auburn prospect threw for 1,976 yards with 14 touchdowns and six interceptions and rushed for 1,068 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall accepted his punishment of not starting the season opener against Arkansas.

"I made a mistake and I'm just trying to gain the trust back from my coaches, my teammates and Auburn's fans," Marshall told reporters. "I'm just going to accept my punishment with open hands. The incident that happened is just going to change me and make [me] a better man." Marshall said he had a "man-to-man conversation" with Auburn coach Gus Malzahn and also apologized to teammates after getting popped on marijuana possession charges last month. "He just told us he was embarrassed and he's going to do whatever he's got to do to get back and help us win games," center Reese Dismukes said. Marshall threw for 1,976 yards with 14 touchdowns and six interceptions and rushed for 1,068 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. Backup Jeremy Johnson is expected to start against the Razorbacks.

Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall will not start the first game of the season against Arkansas, HC Gus Malzahn announced.

Marshall was involved in a marijuana possession case this offseason and has already paid fines and taken measures to get back into the good graces of the team's staff. This is a common punishment, but the question is how long Malzahn will hold Marshall out of the game. It was for a different reason, but Johnny Manziel was held out of the first half of the season opener in 2013.
Aug 2 - 9:21 AM

Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall paid roughly $1,100 in fines, and his marijuana possession case is now considered closed.

The Tigers' quarterback's mother Shalena Cliett paid the fines, with approximately $1,000 going for Marshall's possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and $100 being assesses for illegal window tint. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn still hasn't decided on a punishment, though Marshall was not allowed to go to SEC Media Days or Auburn's ESPY appearances. If the quarterback is suspended, Jeremy Johnson would ascend to No. 1 QB duties.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn told ESPN's Numbers Never Lie that he hasn't yet decided on a punishment for senior QB Nick Marshall.

Marshall received a citation for marijuana possession earlier this month. "He'll have some things he'll have to pay for," Malzahn said Monday on the television show. "I have not decided that for sure right now, but it will be in a short period of time I'll have that figured out." Malzahn called Marshall "the face of the program" who, prior to the incident, had "been a model student, citizen, all of the above." Jeremy Johnson will take over if Marshall is suspended for any length of time, and Malzahn believes he is NFL-caliber. "(Johnson is) another outstanding quarterback I think will play at the next level," he said. "He played two games last year and was the SEC Offensive Freshman of the Week. We're in good shape there."

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said senior Nick Marshall is the first returning starting QB in his eight years as a college coach.

This is remarkable. Obviously Malzahn had a National Championship winning season with Cam Newton and took Nick Marshall and Auburn to the same game in his first season as the Tigers' head coach last year. Marshall seemed to improve as a passer as the season went along, but the focus is running the ball with play action off of it.

Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall addressed the team following his citation for marijuana and was apologetic.

The news comes via tight end CJ Uzomah, who replaced Marshall at SEC Media Days. Marshall emerged as the team's starter last year, and fir well in Gus Malzahn's run-focused offense. He absolutely needs to improve as a passer in order to stay at the position. Marshall was recruited to Georgia as a cornerback.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldamn reports that Auburn isn't bringing senior QB Nick Marshall to SEC Media days after his marijuana citation."

"Auburn isn't bringing Nick Marshall to SEC Media Days after his marijuana citation..Would've been biggest name QB at SEC media days this week," Feldman tweeted. Auburn will now be sending TE C.J. Uzomah in place of QB Nick Marshall. The preseason Heisman candidate was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana following a traffic stop last Friday.

Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall was contrite, apologetic and teary-eyed after getting cited for marijuana possession on Friday, according to Reynolds, Ga., chief of police Lonnie Holder.

Holder issued the citation after a traffic stop. "He was very regretful," Holder said. "He was very respectful. He was very apologetic. He seemed like he was disappointed in himself. He did get a little teary eyed as we had the conversation. I think sometimes what those kids need, they need somebody to talk to them and say, hey, you made a mistake, don’t let it happen anymore." Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn released a statement over the weekend saying he was "very disappointed" in Marshall, but we haven't yet learned if Marshall will be suspended.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn released a statement saying he was "very disappointed" in senior QB Nick Marshall after learning of the signal-caller's citation for marijuana possession.

"I’m aware of the situation that happened earlier today with Nick," Malzahn said. "I’m very disappointed and I will address it with him accordingly." Marshall was in possession of less than an ounce of pot during his traffic stop on Friday, and he was not arrested in the incident. Auburn opens the 2014 season on Aug. 30 against conference rival Arkansas, adding a level of intrigue to Marshall's availability.

ESPN's Chris Low ranks Auburn senior-to-be Nick Marshall as the top QB in the SEC.

"His athletic ability is off the charts, and even though he was erratic throwing the ball at times last season, he's improved in that area and has some big-time playmakers around him," Low writes. Miss State's Dak Prescott, Ole Miss' Bo Wallace, Missouri's Maty Mauk and Alabama's Jacob Coker round out the top five.

Auburn junior QB Nick Marshall runs a forty in the 4.3s.

Marshall led the Tigers to the championship game last year as a quarterback, but many believe he'll have to shift to another position in the pros. The ridiculous athlete shouldn't have a problem doing so, at least from a physical standpoint. He was a star high school basketball player who has some wild dunks on YouTube. Marshall, who player cornerback at Georgia in 2011, could be tried as a WR, CB or S in the NFL if he doesn't take a big step forward as a passer this year.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn won't let senior QB Nick Marshall work with quarterback guru George Whitfield.

"You want them thinking exactly like you want them to think," Malzahn said. "When you get multiple people working, there's multiple thoughts, so we want them thinking one way." Whitfield has worked with Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel, and is expected to instruct reigning Heisman winner Jameis Winston this offseason. Malzahn won't consent to another voice in Marshall's ear, however. "We've never had anyone work with our quarterbacks while they still had eligibility," he said. "We feel really good about how we go about it and the success we've had before. There won't be anyone working with our quarterbacks until their eligibility is exhausted."
