Scouting Report on Marqise Lee

by Barry Every - 11/05/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • AthleticismBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Overall his frame is very lean with plenty of room to add serious muscle. His long lower body is the reason he is dangerous in space.
Needs Improvement: Lee has to be more consistent with snatching the ball out of the air away from his body. Adding more muscle mass will help break simple arm tackles and improve his run blocking while adding pop to his tackling. In the open field he needs to dance less and use his kick to gain positive yards.
Most Impressive: Very dangerous in space because of his smooth lateral movement and strong running stroke. He has enough athleticism and size to possibly project as a receiver, safety or huge corner. Lee also has shown home-run speed and could possibly score from any part of the field.
Conclusion: Right now he seems more of an offensive weapon or return specialist. Defensively, he has the skills to become a difference-maker.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
