Scouting Report: ASU's Cameron Marshall

Cameron Marshall, RB
Arizona State
5-foot-11, 223 lbs., 4.55 40-YD

Strengths
Versatile and productive. Decisive runner. Runs through arm tackles and fights for the extra yard. Effective as both inside and outside runner. Good route running and receiving skill. Willing blocker.

Weaknesses
Lacks top-end breakaway speed. Is quicker than he is fast. A bit of a tweener type of running back. Has had some minor injuries keeping him from playing full season.
 
Summary
Led Arizona State in rushing yards last season with 787 while adding nine TD runs. This kid is a 220-pound back with good quickness, always a tough combination for a defense to contain. Shows several running skills all the good RB's possess. Very decisive running through the line of scrimmage with good vision and cutback ability. Gets to top speed in a hurry and battles for the extra yard after contact. Likes to compete and has a knack for finding the end zone inside the five yard line. Willing blocker though he does need to improve his overall ability to pick up the blitz. Has been a capable outlet receiver and that should continue this season. Overall, Cameron is a solid RB who is adept in all phases and should have a highly productive junior season in 2011.
