While LSU might still wish they had star receiver Ja’Marr Chase, the Tigers have no shortage of talent in the job even without the future first-round pick in the NFL Draft Terrace Marshall Jr has erupted this season after a strong 2019 campaign and has established himself as one of the best players in college football, even with somewhat high and low quarterback play

It’s worth wondering what Marshall’s stock project will look like after this season – he’s set to surpass his production of all last year in about five games thanks to a big game against Carolina South Saturday And as Marshall tore up the Gamecocks in the first half, ESPN color commentator and former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky had an interesting comparison for the LSU star: New Orleans Saints All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas

« He reminds me a lot of Michael Thomas because he’s phenomenal with his run off the line of scrimmage » Orlovsky said « He’s a combination of a really talented young man who works very hard and understands offense. « 

Marshall entered Saturday’s game with 21 receptions for 424 yards and seven touchdowns in just three games, and he had two more scores and nearly 100 yards receiving against South Carolina in the first period alone. He’s already showing strong chemistry with first-year quarterback TJ Finley in Finley’s first career start – and Myles Brennan will likely be back before too long

The former 5-star Bossier City (La) Parkway rookie was named Pro Football Focus’s offensive MVP for All College Football after LSU’s loss to Missouri earlier in October His 235 receiving yards against the Tigers rank fourth in single game history in program The only three single game performances were in 1991 when Todd Kinchen racked up 248 yards against Mississippi State and in 2001 when Josh Reed scored 293 yards against Alabama and 239 yards against Illinois

Reed’s 2001 season and Kinchen’s big game against the Bulldogs have stood the test of time, but even the 2019 squad’s record performance fell short of what Marshall could accomplish in Colombia He went for more yards than Ja’Marr Chase did against Vanderbilt (229), Ole Miss (227) and Clemson (221) in 2019, as well as Justin Jefferson’s 227-yard game against Oklahoma in the half. college football playoff final

Even though he took a step back from Chase and Jefferson in the 2019 LSU offense, Marshall led the entire team in touchdowns before injuring himself against Vanderbilt who put him in the gap for several matches But he came back strong, and he finished the year with 13 of 46 touchdowns

It looks like the former five-star prospect’s NFL Draft title will continue to soar, and that will put him firmly in the conversation to follow Jefferson – and possibly join Chase – as a first-round pick. in April
