Carolina Panthers WR Terrace Marshall Jr. continues to impress
There appears to be a renewed sense of hope that Terrace Marshall Jr. can finally begin making strides in Year 2 of his professional career. Things didn’t go well for the former second-round pick as a rookie, but the wide receiver is clearly looking to make up for some lost time based on his efforts throughout the offseason so far.
Marshall looks the part. His size and physical presence really catch the eye and could become a matchup nightmare providing further strides are made in camp.
Putting it all together seems to be a complication for Marshall. But he continues to make his presence felt and the LSU product came up with the day’s biggest highlight with a superb long-range catch from Sam Darnold during 11-on-11 drills.
This did not go unnoticed by head coach Matt Rhule, who spoke glowingly of Marshall following the session while also highlighting the need to take a cautious approach before the regular season.
"“To me, this is all about execution. Are guys doing things right in full speed? Then execution leads to production. I loved seeing ‘Moo’ make a play. We kind of dialed his reps down. He’s been playing so hard, his reps were high, and his GPS was high. It’s great that he made a play as a result.”"
Marshall could earn a substantial role if things continue in this manner before Week 1. Something that would provide Ben McAdoo’s offense with another big shot in the arm at just the right time.
