NBA Draft 2014: Jermaine Marshall profile

Marshall only spent one season in Tempe, but it was a good one.

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

It might have been short but it was certainly sweet. Jermaine Marshall only spent one season with Arizona State after transferring in from Penn State, but he definitely made the most of his time in a Sun Devil uniform.

Time at ASU: Marshall averaged 15.5 points and three rebounds per game with the Sun Devils in his only season in Tempe, which was a very similar stat line to his final season at Penn State. He made a clutch three pointer at Cal to force overtime against the Bears. He also scored 29 points and helped carry the maroon and gold to an upset victory over No. 2 Arizona.

Strengths: Marshall has shown a lot of consistency over his last two seasons. If nothing else he seems to have a clutch gene and nose for the basket. He has a lot of versatility with his ability to both drive and shoot well from beyond.

Weaknesses: Marshall has suffered from knee problems in the past and sometimes just seemed tired and worn out. He seemingly disappeared on the court after the win against the Wildcats and couldn't find his stroke late in the season. Unfortunately for Marshall, he doesn't have a hook. There is nothing special or "elite" about Marshall's game that would stick out to any NBA scouts. He's 6-foot-4 which is somewhat small for an NBA shooting guard but he never played much point guard at Arizona State either. Even though he has the skill set, Marshall just doesn't jump off the page.

Marshall has had workouts with the Kings, Celtics, Hornets, Cavaliers and Rockets. He hasn't been listed as a pick in any NBA mock drafts that I've found.

Prediction: Undrafted; Ends up playing overseas.
