Nick Marshall was an undisputed standout at Auburn University, leading several unexplainable plays that left viewers and spectators speechless. However, his NFL aspirations are now leading him down a more arduous path. In order to boost his chances in the current NFL class, and effectively transition into the franchise, Nick is looking to switch from a quarterback position to cornerback.
When you analyze previous statistics, the bricks seem to be stacked against Marshall in this court. There have been very few players within the NFL that successfully made the jump from quarterback to cornerback. According to ESPN, an easier transition would be to make the jump to wide receiver versus the new task he has taken on. Still, Dog Graber, a positional coach for Marshall, is rallying behind him. He stated, “It was surprising the first day I worked with him.” He went on to comment on Marshall’s play by stating he showed great athleticism that convinced him the switch would be successful. One thing is for sure, as Marshall continues his pursuit of NFL play, it will not be an easy road to travel.
