Quarterback Jalin Marshall is one of the most dynamic players in the nation, even if he doesn't necessarily fit into a certain position.

Watch to see which NFL player compares most with Marshall. 

According to 247 Sports, the 6'0", 190-pound Marshall is a 4-star dual-threat quarterback/athlete. He played quarterback for Middletown High School in Ohio. His skill set projects him to be more of a wide receiver at the next level, and his 4.40 40-yard dash suggests that that won't be a problem.

In 247 Sports' composite rankings, he's No. 42 overall, the third-best athlete and the No. 1 recruit in Ohio.

When you're rated that high, you don't need to have a definitive position. You're just good. Being a weapon in today's football world is valuable, and it doesn't get better than Marshall.

The Middletown Journal mentioned in a report that he "rushed for 1,859 yards (7.8 per carry) and 20 touchdowns in 12 games last season, leading the Middies to a Division I playoff berth. He also passed for 782 yards and tossed six TD passes."

Those numbers are the reason that he is a 2013 Under-Armour All-American as well.

His ability to carry the ball, find the second level and push himself into another gear is downright dangerous to opposing teams.
