REC 39 | YDS 1,244 | TD 11

While doing some researching on this year's upcoming WR Draft class. I came a crossed Freshman Marion Brennan. It was not his 1244 yrds what impressed me but the fact he manage to do so with only 39 catches, and a mind blowing 31.9 AVG per catch with 11 TDs.

I personally thought those were impressing number to put up in your freshman year so I started to look for info on him. Videos, Info, Scouting profiles.. But I could barely find anything on him.

Was it his speed? According to www.Nfldraftscout.com he runs in the 4.4s and that's considered above average but then again 40 yrds are always misleading. Ex: Jerry Rice was considered to run in the 4.6 yet on the field he had that competitive speed and finesse that made him look faster than any one who covered him. For all we know he could run faster than in the 4.3s on the field.

So could it be that maybe he is a very physical WR who can break off tackles and take the ball down the field? Could it be that he maybe has extremely quickness and route running skills, leaving his defender looking lost at the line of scrimmage? Maybe none of the above.. Maybe they just deep throw the ball to him in Tulsa.. Who knows!

What I do know is that I saw him play on TV once while I was at friend's house having some beers last year, he is a big Tulsa fan. At the time I didn t make much of him because he was unknown to me. While making pointless conversation because I wasn t interested in the games, I did noticed a couple of plays and I saw his ability to get off the line and burn his defender and get to the second level.

One thing is for sure.. He is got my attention and I will be looking at him closer

I found no Highlight video but I did find a 6 seconds video on YouTube. It really don t help much but enjoy.. lol
