Terrace Marshall Jr. – Carolina Panthers WR
The hype train is once again in full swing for Terrace Marshall Jr. after standing out considerably during early offseason workouts. This was also the case surrounding the 2021 second-round selection last year before a disappointing opening campaign in a professional environment.
Marshall found life extremely difficult to make a smooth transition. He was unable to get open consistently and was even benched for their game at the Miami Dolphins, so fans are right to err on the side of caution regarding the LSU product.
What’s important for Marshall is to put this to the back of his mind and learn from some harsh experiences. He has all the physical tools in the world to make an impact, but building early confidence is of paramount importance in training camp.
Perhaps some improved quarterback distribution from Baker Mayfield will help following his high-profile trade from the Cleveland Browns. The presence of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is another positive where Marshall is concerned.
The Carolina Panthers picked Marshall at No. 59 overall for a reason. They expect him to become a primary weapon sooner rather than later, but with just 17 receptions for 138 receiving yards as a rookie, tempering expectations might be the smart way to go until the wideout proves otherwise.
