3 Most Likely Teams to Draft Terrace Marshall
Outside of teammate Ja'Marr Chase, Terrace Marshall Jr. is another explosive LSU wide receiver who will likely go in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. There are several contenders in the latter part of the first round who could use WR help and should be jumping at the chance to add the talented wideout to their roster.
With that in mind, here are three likely teams that will draft Marshall.
3. Baltimore Ravens (No. 27)
It's clear that the Baltimore Ravens need to add weapons at wide receiver for quarterback Lamar Jackson. With Baltimore being run-heavy, they may not spend on a No. 1 wideout like Allen Robinson this offseason, but they can add address the position in the draft. Marshall, who stands 6-foot-3, could provide Jackson with an excellent go-to option when needing yards or a score in the redzone. He'd be an excellent fit alongside Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews, making the Ravens' passing game a legit strength.
2. Green Bay Packers (No. 29)
Aaron Rodgers isn't the happiest camper at the moment, and the team's decision to draft backup Jordan Love in the first round last year has played a role in that. One way to cheer their QB up is by gifting him another weapon, even if they have to trade up to do so. Marshall racked up 23 touchdowns in his past two college seasons, showcasing his ability to burn defenses with ease. The LSU wideout would give Green Bay an instant No. 2 WR opposite of Davante Adams, and the potential of that duo with Rodgers under center is a scary thought.
1. Indianapolis Colts (No. 21)
The Indianapolis Colts finally got their QB, trading for Carson Wentz. Now they can get him a weapon in the draft with the No. 21 overall pick. Besides being a fantastic redzone target given his height, Marshall is also a true deep threat, averaging 15.0 yards per reception across his 28 games at LSU. With T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal both entering free agency, Indy needs to invest in its WR corps to set Wentz up for success, and Marshall is an excellent choice to pair with rookie standout Michael Pittman Jr.
