It is not a Mike Shanahan draft without the token late-round running back. Even with Alfred Morris topping 1,500 yards as a rookie sixth-rounder from little ol' FAU, the draw of another sleeper back is too tantalizing to pass up.
Cameron Marshall is a player who had his best year in 2011 before a coaching change at ASU brought about a committee approach to the running back position. After rushing for 1,050 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, Marshall's numbers were cut in half as he split carries with Marion Grice.
Marshall rushed for 582 yards and nine touchdowns at 4.6 yards per carry, but Grice's 14 carry, 159 yard performance in ASU's bowl victory left him overshadowed.
He possesses good speed and agility, but has a tendency to run a little high, which can be coached. He is an asset both carrying the ball and receiving out of the backfield.
With either Roy Helu or Evan Royster possibly being released or traded, Marshall would provide depth and a nice versatile, change-of-pace back for the Redskins offense.
Next Best Option: Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt
