Draft Profile: Bio
MarShawn Lloyd from DeMatha Catholic High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Lloyd joined South Carolina.

In 2021 as a freshman Lloyd saw action in 12 games for the Gamecocks as he ran for 228 yards on 64 attempts for only 3.6 yards per carry, with one TD, with 3 fumbles. As a receiver he made only 3 receptions for 44 yards.

As a sophomore in 2022 he played 9 games. and rushed for 565 yards on 110 carries for an impressive 5.1 ypc, with 9 TDs, with 2 fumbles. In the passing game he pulled in 18 receptions for 173 yards.

After the end of the year Lloyd transferred to USC where as a junior Lloyd saw action in 11 games for the Trojans. He ran for 816 yards on 115 attempts for an elite 7.1 ypc, with 9 TDs, with 3 fumbles. As a receiver he made only 13 receptions for 232 yards.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s solid in blitz pickup, and Lloyd consistently showed the ability to anchor against bigger players.
  • Lloyd brings a nice blend of power and passing game skills. Lloyd has a compact build and a naturally low center of gravity, and he runs with excellent balance through traffic, allowing him to squeeze through for yardage.
  • A strong, compact runner with a thick lower half. Virtually lives in the weight room. A coordinated athlete who runs close to the ground with low pad level, quick feet and smooth acceleration.
  • Possesses quick feet and straight-line speed but doesn't have the elite burst to be a constant big-play threat. Improving patience as a runner, following pulling guards and makes good decisions on his cut.
  • A quick, smooth athlete with the footwork to make sharp cuts and redirect his momentum in a flash. Shows good vision and patience with natural running instincts.
  • Flashes initial burst and good lateral quickness to sidestep defenders or bounce runs outside with very good foot quickness. Displays very good feel as an inside and outside runner with above average vision to make sharp cuts - good patience· and footwork to pick through defenses.
  • He’s capable as a receiver, a weapon on swing passes and in the screen game.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Too indecisive and hesitant at the line of scrimmage.
  • Lloyd doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability.
  • He’s more of a cut blocker in pass protection as opposed to a guy who will stick his face in against the blitz, although that is a correctable flaw.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
