When The Jets Run The Ball

Brandon Marshall isn’t underrated as a run blocker. He’s not overlooked in this area in the least.

The problem is that fans underrate the importance of run blocking from a wide receiver.

Marshall is a phenomenal run blocker out wide. His rather large 6’4”, 229 lbs. frame forces most corners to not even have a chance.

First off, the defense’s look at the line of scrimmage will greatly depend on whether Ryan Fitzpatrick or Geno Smith will change the play from pass-to-run or run-to-pass. Marshall demands extra attention and if the defense keeps the box light with seven or six, a “check with me” at the line in changing the play to a run is very likely.

Weapons in the NFL are only as valuable as the attention they receive from defenses. Marshall’s value in this area is through the roof.
