Marquese Livers, WR/TE, Kentucky State University #85
Weight: 215 lbs
Livers is a very unknown dual-threat receiver and tight end from Kentucky State University. From the limited film I had access to, Livers is a possible under-the-radar draft pick for a team in need of a playmaker on offense. Find out why.
Make sure to check out all of our other scouting reports here.
|Route Tree||8/10 Livers runs a number of routes lining up as a slot receiver and a tight end. He makes great cuts to get open and can adjust to the football.|
|Hands||8/10 Not only shows great hands by going up to catch the football, but he keeps his hands up when blocking as a tight end.|
|Versatility||9/10 As you can see from what I have said about him already, he is very versatile, lining up as a receiver and a tight end. He is a physical player and has solid speed to make things happen.|
|Contested Catch||8.5/10 Incredible ability to make adjustments to the ball and can make catches with a defender(s) right in his face. High points the ball in tight coverage and his big frame is used to his advantage.|
|RAC||9/10 Very shifty and elusive, he can weave past defenders and break tackles. For his size, he has good quickness and can barrel over hopeful tacklers.|
|Athleticism||8/10 He is physical and quick for his size. He can run through a brick wall if he had to and still make a catch.|
|Competitive Toughness||9/10 He leaves it all on the field. He will risk everything to lay big blocks to clear a path for the running back or receiver.|
|Fluidity||7/10 Not as quick and fluid as most receivers, however, he has some quickness. He won’t burst down the field, but he has good enough quickness to make plays.|
|Blocking||8/10 As I mentioned, he has his hands up high when he blocks and will be very physical to clear a space for the runner. He is great at holding and pulling a block while running down the field.|
|Football IQ||9/10 He is a very smart player and knows when to cut, where to block, and he knows how to read the defense and react to their alignment.|
|Overall||83.5/100 With a draft that is so stacked in receivers this year, players like Livers will be hurt by this. Not many scouts have taken notice to him, but Livers is a very versatile and physical player who can give any team a solid playmaker. He has something left to prove and whatever team gets him will get a motivated, smart, and talented player.
