Scouting Report on Marvin Shinn

by Barry Every - 06/02/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Shinn’s lower body is more developed. He has the legs of a basketball player who can jump out of the building. He will remind fans of 2010 Clemson signee Martavis Bryant.
Needs Improvement: Clearly he will need to add upper body strength while improving his speed just a tad. Shinn needs more reps at wide receiver because he is his team’s part-time quarterback. Reps at receiver will allow him more time to work on beating physical press coverage and running sharper routes.
Most Impressive: This is your prototypical basketball player-turned receiver. He has tremendous body control while being able to adjust while the ball is in the air. He also possesses problems with his height and arm length for smaller defensive backs.
Conclusion: He could use a redshirt year while he increases his strength and adds muscle mass. If he proves to be a quick learner and can catch the ball with regularity, he will play some as a true freshman. He has all the tools to be a star; he just needs to stay focused on the task at hand.
