  • This may be my adopt a rookie. Fear our defense :)

    The offense utilization is an interesting aspect too. Anyone know how often he was used by UCLA on the O side?

    Check out the 1:30 mark on this clip above, looks like UCLA used him as a tight end and he caught one for a TD :lol: I'm liking this pick; good upside.

    From the commentary on NFLNet, he might have been playing fullback or H-back on that play. But it's kind of cool he can do that. ;)

    Looks like he might follow in Irvin's footsteps. Do some situational pass rushing the first year, then work on positional skills. Then find a home at LEO/SLB maybe.

    The kid could be versatile. He has attitude, apparently. At 250, he could be thought a bit light for a full time DE, but with his length he'd be a good weak side DE if he can stay in on run downs.

  • Seahawks announce him on twitter as "Cassius Marsh, LEO."

    So there you go. No mystery as to where he will play.

    Yes, hated this guy (for non-football reasons) when the Huskies played UCLA. Should be a solid rotational player and we'll see where he goes from there.

  • Best 3 cone and 20 yard in the draft for DEs. Can never have enough depth at LEO/SLB as well as potential pass rushers.

    He will be a guy that can back up Irvin, Avril and Wright and play some strong side backer as well as LEO.

    Love the pick.

  • He ranks tops among our three picks so far in excitement factor, and it's not even close. Glad we were able to get him this late.

    Seems like it's been a long time since we drafted anyone from UCLA. Or am I forgetting someone?

  • Fararr just said he's definitely not a LEO. Said the hawks will bulk him up a bit and pay him inside and out (5tech).

    Marsh came into UCLA at 300lbs. Said the hawks loved his versatility and the fact they can move him around

    He was in the 250's at the combine. I don't think they know where he is currently at and just making shiz up.
