Former Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall will throw at the NFL Combine on Saturday despite switching to cornerback in January, according to AL.com:
quote:

Marshall was invited as a quarterback to the combine in Indianapolis despite moving to cornerback in January.

Marshall will participate in all quarterback drills. Several NFL teams are expected to pull him to the side and work through defensive back drills, but he will not participate in on-the-field drills with the group of defensive backs invited to the combine.
Marshall started the last two seasons at quarterback for Auburn but moved to cornerback in January and played the position at the Senior Bowl.

If all else fails, he can be an English teacher.

He's pretty much doomed. His only chance is at CB, which he hasn't played since high school. He needs all the work he can get at the position, so ... he's invited as a QB.

Hope he got a good education there at Auburn [chuckle].

Can you guys not read? He was invited as a QB, which means there's a real interest in him at the position. There's also a real interest of him at CB, which is why it plainly states he'll be pulled aside for individual CB drills. These guys aren't dictating the terms of their combine invites, so what's a guy to do? Turn it down? I'd say that's about the only choice Marshall would have in the matter. It's the nature of a weak QB class. Ultimately, he ends up at CB (sans Chip Kelly).
