STRENGTHS: Displays a quick get off and pursuit speed for the position. Provides versatility with experience playing along the Bruins' line.
WEAKNESSES: Snap anticipation can be a problem - he jumped off-sides on consecutive snaps in a key situation against Cal in 2013. A frustrated Marsh was then ejected for throwing a punch.
but his snap anticipation became a problem in the second quarter when he jumped offsides on back-to-back plays. The first penalty gave the Cal offense a first down and the second flag prompted a little frustration from Marsh, who was ejected after "throwing a punch," according to the official.
A versatile defensive lineman, Marsh lines up both inside and outside for the UCLA defensive front and at 6-4 and 265 pounds, he has a little bit of a tweener skillset.

01/18/2014 - PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES AT THE SHRINE GAME: 4. DE Cassius Marsh, UCLA (6-4, 260, 4.92, #99)...When the flip is switched, Marsh is an active, disruptive force who can penetrate the pocket or string plays outside before making the stop. And his fiery attitude was on display in practice as he made several impressive stops in drills, fighting through blocks and tracking the ball. Marsh needs to stay motivated to allow that competitive streak show, but he's a force rushing the passer and stopping the run. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
