Seahawks draft DE Cassius Marsh
Marsh, who is 6-foot-4, 252 pounds, played both end and tackle at UCLA, moving from tackle to end for the 2013 season. He had six sacks last season after recording eight in 2012. The Seahawks need depth at DE after releasing Chris Clemons, and Marsh's measurables indicate he fits the part, but his versatility could also help him get on the field in other roles.
In addition to a productive career, Marsh is also know for having something of a fiery side—as this L.A. Times article notes, he was ejected for a game for taking a swing at a Cal offensive lineman—but he says that’s something he’s learning to control.
“I play with a lot of fire, I play with a lot of passion, and sometimes that can spill over,” Marsh said. “I made some mistakes as a young guy, and it’s something that I’m very aware of, it’s something that when I go out on the field, I always keep in the back of my mind. I’ve been able to grow from my mistakes and learn, and I’ll continue to work on doing so.”
