Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall accepted life at a new position during the Senior Bowl in January, but he still has hopes of impressing someone in the NFL from the quarterback position. When he attends the NFL Combine in Indianapolis the former Auburn quarterback says he is open to working out at whatever positions scouts and NFL teams would like, including quarterback.
“I’m not sure yet. I’m going to do what they want me to do,” Marshall told Auburn Undercover. “It will make me more valuable to do both.”
Marshall was initially invited to the combine to be evaluated as a quarterback, but he said he was intending to work out with defensive backs instead. Marshall was also invited to play quarterback at the Senior Bowl but spent time playing defensive back, a position many scouts feel may be more suitable for Marshall in the league.
Marshall completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 2,532 yards and 20 touchdowns with seven interceptions last season for Auburn. If he does end up with a chance to throw at the combine, scouts will take notice, but his more likely position in the NFL may be more likely to come elsewhere even with a positive showing in Indianapolis.
