04/15/14 - Five players who should be on the San Francisco 49ers' draft radar: WR Marqise Lee, Southern Cal: In Harbaugh's ball-control offense, slot receivers only occasionally see the field. Given the way the rest of the league is evolving towards the pass, however, spreading the field with playmakers could be a priority for San Francisco. The 49ers already boast two physical, reliable pass-catchers on the outside with Crabtree and Boldin. Lee's first-step acceleration, however, would serve as an effective complement.
Lee struggled with injuries and drops in 2013 and doesn't have the buzz of similarly gifted slot receivers like Odell Beckham, Jr. (LSU) or Brandin Cooks (Oregon State), but the talent that helped him dominate the Pac-12 his first two seasons of college football didn't just disappear. If the 49ers are satisfied with Lee's recovery from the knee issues which plagued him as a junior, they might be able to simply stand pat at No. 30 and allow the dynamic playmaker to fall into their lap. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/22/14 - 2014 Pro Days: USC's Marqise Lee doesn't run, others do but struggle...Lee did look good during some of the other drills in Indianapolis, posting a 38" vertical, a 10-6" broad jump and a 4.01-second short shuttle that ranked among the top eight (among receivers) tested in Indianapolis this year. For a receiver that entered the year ranked 1A or 1B with Clemson's Sammy Watkins, however, the numbers were disappointing. According to a source on the scene, Lee looked fluid during positional workouts. Following the workout, Lee was asked by Scott Wolf of Inside USC and the Los Angeles Daily News whether he considered running the 40 yard dash. "No... I knew I could do better but at the end of the day, you have to understand that film is different than a 40 time," Lee said. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/22/14 - 2014 Pro Days: USC's Marqise Lee doesn't run, others do but struggle...For years, the Pro Day workout at Southern Cal was considered one of the more important stops for any scout. With only one prospect likely to hear his name called in the first round, however, new head coach Steve Sarkisian is going to have his work cut out for him in rebuilding the Trojans. Wide receiver Marqise Lee, the team's lone first round candidate, surprised some by electing to stand pat on his 40-yard dash time from the Combine.
It was hoped that Lee, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 3 wide receiver and No. 18 overall prospect, would run as the the 6-foot, 192 pounder was clocked at 4.52 seconds in the all-important 40-yard dash in Indianapolis, exhibiting less explosiveness in this drill than he'd shown throughout much of his spectacular career. This led to speculation that Lee still wasn't fully recovered from the nagging leg injuries which played a significant role in his dropping from 118 receptions for 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns during his Biletnikof Award-winning sophomore season to just 57 receptions for 791 yards and four scores in 2013. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 15. *Marqise Lee, WR, Southern Cal, 6-0, 195, 4.49, 1...As a freshman phenom in 2011, Lee put his amazing athletic skills on display and looked the part of a top three pick destined for future Heisman discussions. He is an elite athlete who could do it all, and maybe still can. But with less complementary talent and a myriad of physical maladies, his last two years were less spectacular. Still, this is a tough kid from a tougher background filled with gangs, killings (brother was murdered) and family challenges (father is deaf). He never complained, just used his skills as a ticket out. And now it is time to get that ticket punched. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/04/14 - USC's Lee opts for NFL Draft...USC junior wide receiver Marqise Lee declared his intention on Friday night to give up his final year of college eligibility and enter the NFL Draft. "I have decided to forego my senior season at USC and declare for the 2014 NFL Draft," Lee said in a tweet. "I want to thank my coaches, teammates, staff and the entire Trojan Family for all of the support over the last three seasons. I am a proud Trojan and will remain a Trojan for life!"
Lee struggled with injuries during his junior year and finished the season with 57 receptions for 791 yards and four touchdowns. But he is projected as a first-round pick as the No. 3 wide receiver and the No. 17 overall prospect by NFLDraftScout.com. As a sophomore, Lee won the Biletnikoff Award as the top receiver in the nation after he had 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns. - The Sports Xchange
