For months we heard about Jalin Marshall. We heard about how the undrafted running back/wide receiver hybrid out of Ohio State had such a chip on his shoulder that he was tearing up New York Jets minicamp.
And then, we saw him in Week 1 of the preseason.
The hype is real ladies and gentlemen. While his 40-speed will never be what NFL execs would like to see it at (4.6+), Marshall’s vision and explosiveness is real.
He showcased it on the kick return:

Barring any unforeseen disasters, J-Marsh has already made the squad as a return guy. What’s best is how Gailey and the Jets are also using him offensively.
He caught a 10-yard ball from Geno Smith while playing with the second unit. He was also subbed in as a the fourth option with the first unit while the big boys are on the field.
Marshall’s hype is legit my friends, and the Jets love him. Like Enunwa, he’s going to bring absurd uniqueness to this offense.
