As it stands, LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. is one of the better catch-passing prospects entering the 2021 NFL Draft. The 20-year-old spent all three seasons of his college football career with the LSU Tigers, making 106 receptions and turning that into 1,594 yards and 23 touchdowns. He's also 6-foot-3, weighs 200 pounds and ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash at his pro day, showing that he has an impressive combination of size and speed.

As it stands, Marshall is projected by many mock drafts to be selected in either the late first- or early second-round this month. Any team who ends up drafting him could potentially make him an important piece of their core for years to come.

With tha being said, here are three teams that are most likely to draft Terrace Marshall Jr. at the 2021 NFL Draft.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 32)

After winning Super Bowl 55, there isn't a lot that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to do aside from replacing WR Antonio Brown. Obviously, Marshall likely won't produce Brown-like numbers in his first season, but he could become an important piece in Tampa Bay's offense. PFF's Sam Monson theorized on Monday that the Buccaneers could be looking for a wide receiver in Round 1, especially with Chris Godwin playing under the franchise tag and Marshall could fit that description.

2. Philadelphia Eagles (No. 37)

Assuming that Marshall does end up slipping into the early second round of the draft, the Philadelphia Eagles could be right there waiting to seize that opportunity. Currently, Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward and Travis Fulgham are the team's top-3 wide receivers. If the Eagles want to bounce back from their disappointing 2020 campaign, Marshall could help them in that regard by instantly becoming a top option for young QB Jalen Hurts.

1. Tennessee Titans (No. 22)

After finally having his breakout season with the Tennessee Titans in 2020, WR Corey Davis left the team in free agency to play with the New York Jets. Considering how A.J. Brown is the only real receiver that the Titans have, they could use someone of Marshall's skill set. After all, QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 3,819 yards and 33 touchdowns last season and not all of that can go to Brown in 2021. If The Titans do draft Marshall, he could become a key player in their offense right out of the gate.
