I have already stated how much the Patriots covet Richard Marshall. I have also said numerous other NFL teams are interested in drafting the former 'Dog in the first or second round. However, Tom Casale at Patriots Football Weekly just substantiated how much Marshall's stock has risen:
Marshall is very quick for a cornerback. He’s probably the most complete corner in the draft. He led the Bulldogs in tackles last year, so that shows how physical he is. His two interceptions of 100 and 75 yards were straight speed. He picked off the ball and he was gone. He also returned kicks in college, so that tells you what kind of game-breaker he is. Some people may not know a lot about him but when you break Marshall down on tape and compare him to the other cornerbacks in this draft, he’s at the top of the list.
