News: The Eagles were able to sign defensive back Curtis Marsh, who they selected in the third round of April's NFL Draft, on Wednesday just in time for camp. The converted running back transitioned well to defense in his senior season at Utah State, starting 12 games at cornerback last year with a pair of interceptions.
Analysis: Marsh's size ( 6-foot-1, 197 pounds) plays well into his chances on making an early impact in Philadelphia's attacking defense, an he could see starting time down the road once he develops further. He may work as the dimeback in 2011, which won't warrant him much Fantasy value in seasonal formats. Still, Marsh may be worth a look in the deepest of dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts.
News: The Eagles added defensive back Curtis Marsh out of Utah State in the third round of April's draft, adding another cornerback to their depth chart. Marsh converted from running back before the 2009 season, started 12 games at cornerback last year and had two interceptions. "What you're getting is a big, strong, physical, fast and a very, very intelligent cornerback who doesn't quite have as much experience as other corners in the draft, but we feel with our coaching and his athletic ability will develop into a fine starter," Reid said.
Analysis: The 6-foot-1, 197-pound Marsh could eventually compete for a starting spot and has the makings of a pretty good cornerback. We could see him as a dimeback in 2011. Fantasy owners should only take a look at him in the deepest of dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts.
