Brennan Marion, WR, Tulsa

Marion transferred from DeAnza Junior College in 2007. While at DeAnza, Marion earned some Junior College All American honors. He moved on to play in all 13 games Tulsa University participated in, catching "only" 39 passes for an impressive 1,244 yards for an even more amazing number: a 31.9 yards per reception (a figure that easily led the nation). He also scored eleven TDs. Marion is a big (although slender) wide receiver who is blessed with great football (4.50) speed. He makes good yards after the catch and moves extremely well in the open field while having good hand coordination. Marion studies the game with passion and is a hard worker who spent his 2007 off season working on route running and conditioning. He is a willing blocker, but because he is not physical enough, is not an effective one. He does not explode off the line and his route running stills needs some refinement. He also needs to get stronger. His level of competition is a concern as well as his experience being a major drawback. Marion has everything to be a special player in the NFL. Nevertheless, he has some issues to resolve; Lack of experience (he only would have played two years of college football) is a major concern. Expect him, if he keep putting up impressive numbers at pass happy Tulsa, to keep moving up on Draft boards. Today, Marion will probably be selected in the late fourth to early fifth round area.
