Cassius Marsh, UCLA:

Another player that drew interest from our scouts, and could go as early as the fourth round. Marsh is a defensive end for the Bruins, and is another productive, versatile player. He doesn’t particularly have the speed to be a great pass rusher, or the bulk to play inside, but he is presented as a 3-4 defensive end “through & through”.

He does a good job at setting the edge…. kind of like Jarret Johnson. He plays with a lot of intensity, getting his teammates pumped up, but sometimes makes errors when getting “too emotional”. If he can bulk up, he could be a good defensive end. He will probably have a long career in the NFL, but won’t be a stud. He is a good prospect, in his own right, but was overshadowed by Anthony Barr. If he is available in the 5th, I can see Telesco taking a whack at it. He could be a solid addition, with the right coaching. He draws comparisons to Andre Branch of Jacksonville.
