Marshall is perhaps the best key forward in this year’s draft pool.

The 198cm tall is a good shot for goal, both set shot and snap and can also crumb the ball well for his size.

He gets most of his marks on the lead, but needs to work his one on one contested marking and one on one contests.

However, he is still very raw and will need time to develop, having only recently become solely a footballer.

Marshall was playing cricket on a tour of the UK just over a year ago, before deciding to focus on footy career.

He is yet to really stamp his authority on a game and really produce a dominant performance.
