At 6'0" and 192 pounds, USC's Marqise Lee is a dynamic wide receiver and return man.

Lee's best season came in his sophomore year, where he caught 118 passes for 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns. With Matt Barkley under center, Lee was able to eclipse 100 receiving yards in eight games, including an astounding 345-yard performance against Arizona.

In a 2013 junior season marred by injury, quarterback issues and Lane Kiffin's dismissal, Lee regressed. While 57 catches for 791 yards and four touchdowns isn't "bad," given the circumstances, it wasn't the Marqise Lee the world was accustomed to seeing.

As a result, Lee went from being considered the best wide receiver in the class to playing second fiddle to Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M's Mike Evans.

Still, Lee's complete body of work at USC suggests he'll be able to make an impact at the next level. The former Biletnikoff Award winner has proved that, under the right circumstances, he has the ability to be in a class of his own at his position.

Lee is excellent after the catch, has a knack for the big play and is the sort of playmaker NFL teams are looking for in today's NFL.
