RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
With Danny Trevathan (knee) out for most of the year, Marshall stepped up as Denver's top inside linebacker in 2014, surpassing triple-digit tackles in just 870 snaps. With Denver switching to a 3-4 this year, Marshall and Trevathan will both be on the field as inside linebackers in Wade Phillips' defense. Phillips has a history of dialing up blitzes for his inside linebackers, making Marshall a good bet to increase his two sacks from last year. The only concern is his recovery from a March foot surgery, but he is expected to be ready for training camp.
Marshall will primarily provide depth at linebacker this year while playing behind Von Miller, who is still recovering from a torn ACL. Miller is expected to be back by Week 1, but if he's not fully healthy, Marshall could grab some extra snaps early in the season.
Marshall will add depth at the linebacker spot and is also likely to contribute on special teams. He's reportedly made some strides this offseason, so there is a chance he could even challenge Geno Hayes for a starting spot.
Marshall will likely take on a depth and special teams role in his rookie season.
