Terrace Marshall Jr. – Carolina Panthers WR
Another player who showed his true quality on his NFL debut was Terrace Marshall Jr. The former LSU man has already put together an impressive film from his performances in camp, pulling off some excellent catches.
On his debut at the Indianapolis Colts, Marshall racked up 88 receiving yards on just three receptions, including a 60-yard catch and run from backup quarterback P.J. Walker.
Marshall seems to be benefiting from his relationship with offensive coordinator Joe Brady, someone he worked with at LSU.
The early Carolina Panthers depth chart has Marshall at WR3 behind stars D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson. Meaning that the decision-makers have the rookie presumably ahead of veteran David Moore who was acquired this past offseason.
Before he opted out of the remainder of the 2020 season, Marshall totaled 731 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns after finally emerging from the shadow of Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase on the Tigers.
Marshall already seems something of a steal as he dropped to No. 59 overall in the recent draft, which was mainly due to injury issues.
However, if the Panthers can keep Marshall healthy and the wideout maintains his impressive start as a rookie, Carolina has a top-tier group of receivers in 2021.
