Let me start off by saying that I don't believe that there is a major need at DB this season, especially because we have somewhere around 14 DBs on the roster at this point. With this in mind, I have a small bone to pick. It seems that majority of people on this board who have us taking a DB in a draft have us selecting Richard Marshall, usually around the 2nd round. My question for everyone is: why is there so much love for Marshall? The reason that Marshall was originally put on someone's draft board is because he played Fresno State for Pat Hill, who coached under BB. We drafted two players from Fresno State last year, so it seemed plausible that we would draft Marshall this year. Though this logic is shaky, I can understand it. However, recently Marshall has been rising for no apparant reason. Why is this? Marshall only ran a 4.47 40 at his Pro Day, which is nothing spectacular. And according to http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showthread.php?t=33750 (Pony's defensive prospect rankings, which were an excellent piece of work btw), Marshall, who played in a non-BCS conference, had only average stats in college, even compared to players in BCS conferences. I just don't see the reasoning behind the love for Richard Marshall. If someone can explain it, I would really appreciate it.
