Draft Rewind 2014: Marqise Lee, Jacksonville Jaguars


What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MARQISE LEE: Southern Cal, 5116, 192, 4.47. Junior entry. Three-year starter. Was nicked up in 2013 but flashed glimpses of his previous two highlight reel years at Southern Cal. Sudden quickness out of his breaks. Competitive at the ball. Has elite speed to run by corners on deep vertical routes. Explosive kickoff return specialist averaging 28.5 yards per return. He owns or shares 22 USC records. Plays quick and fast. No holdup in press coverage. Closes the cushion quickly in “off” coverage. Quick feet on release or downfield eluding tacklers. Lee has the ability to get open on his own in man-toman or zone coverage. Has a natural running motion transitioning from receiver to runner after he snatches the ball. Secures the ball and slips a tackle. Instinctive running ability. Runs a lot of inside breaking or crossing routes. Runs patterns off motion with an ease of movement. Good ball skills. A natural catcher. Extends to catch the ball away from his frame. Consistent hands to make the clutch catch. Gives a good effort to block. Scrappy. Goes out of his way to wall off in the open field. He does not give up on a route if the quarterback is under pressure, but rather works across the field to get open. An intelligent receiver who can line up in several different alignments. Finished up his Trojan career with seven catches good for 118 yards and two scores versus Fresno State in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. Will make some concentration drops at times or double catch the ball. Has an injury history. Slender build that could use more muscle mass. 2013 stats: 57-791, 13.9 ypr, 4 TD. Career stats: 248-3655, 14.7 ypr, 29 TD. OSR:12/ 46. First/second round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 1/2, VJ-38, SS-4.01).
