KC Chiefs could replace Watkins with…
Terrace Marshall Jr.
Terrace Marshall Jr. would be another great option for the KC Chiefs to replace Watkins or Demarcus Robinson’s spot on the roster. Marshall has a great skill set that includes, top-end speed, can make contested catches, embraces contact, and has good body control. All of this with good size at 6’3 200 pounds, which is ideal for a receiver.
While Marshall has the traits of a true X receiver he has some key weaknesses that need to be refined. These weaknesses include his incomplete route tree, average RAC, average against press, and does not get to his top gear quick enough.
At the moment he grades out as a second-round prospect, and in some mock drafts I have done he has dropped to the third round. If the KC Chiefs want a true receiver that only needs a little more refinement, then look no further than Terrace Marshall Jr.
This is one of my favorite receivers in this year’s wide receiver class, as Sage Surratt is a superstar in the making. Surratt’s key skills are his physicality, can beat one-on-one skills, and is a smart player. This skillset also comes with the ideal size for an X receiver at 6’2 and 215 pounds.
Although Surratt has the physicality, he lacks in athleticism, speed, and is average against press coverage. At the moment Surratt is pretty much a slot receiver who has a lot of physical aspects and can get open.
He has been projected as a third to fourth-round pick and if the KC Chiefs want a physical slot receiver who has a high floor then Surratt is the pick.
