Byron Marshall, Senior Wide Receiver/Running Back

The Oregon Ducks have created a Hybrid player, in a sense. In his Sophomore season Marshall rushed for over one-thousand yards. Last season, as a Junior he was a one-thousand yard receiver. He made the move to Wide Receiver last season after Bralon Addison was lost to a knee injury, ending his season before it began. Now Marshall, along with Addison will help lead what is more than likely the most experienced Wide Receiver Corps in the Pac-12. The key word for this group is experience. Regardless of who is throwing them the ball, they should be able to bring it down.

With the injury to Tyner, Marshall may shift back to Running Back, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t lineup on the outside for the Oregon Ducks this season. The game against Eastern Washington may not tell very much about how Oregon will use Marshall this season, but Week two will begin to tell the story against Michigan State.
