USC has undergone plenty of change and growth since last facing the Sun Devils

Adoree' Jackson watched from afar. On the night of Sept. 28, 2013, Jackson and his Serra Cavaliers teammates likely were still excited about their 36-13 win over Narbonne the night prior. Jackson had 235 all-purpose yards in the game, including a 102-yard interception return for touchdown.   Nearly 400 miles away in Tempe, Ariz., his future team was playing in the desert. They were...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Wide receiver Marqise Lee was hoping to make an impression on the field when the Jacksonville Jaguars held their organized team activities and minicamp in May and June. An ankle injury prevented him from doing that. But the second-round pick out of USC has made quite a few friends already in their locker room. That was something he never expected. "Being in...

USC’s Marqise Lee Could Make $4.4 Million From Insurance Policy After Slipping To Second Round

For most players, slipping into the second round of the NFL Draft means less money. Not for Marqise Lee, though. The former Southern California wide receiver took out an insurance policy before the 2013 season that would pay him if he sustained an injury or fell in the NFL Draft. Lee was projected to be picked highly, but he ended up getting selected by Jacksonville in the second...

‘Injury Expert’ Will Carroll Is Told “Half The League Is Out” On Marqise Lee Due To Injury Concerns

USC wide receiver Marqise Lee is one of the biggest names left available in the NFL Draft, and could very well be among the first players taken in tonight’s second round. However, if one report is to be believed (and its the NFL Draft, so that is a major question as teams are in full gamesmanship mode), Lee’s existing knee injury may be keeping him off many draft boards.

Eagles Top Two Options at Wide Receiver in Round 2

Possibility #1: Marqise Lee USATSI I’m not a huge fan of this pick, but the Eagles seem to be very interested in the versatile receiver out of USC. His stats from last season weren’t anything special, and he didn’t wow anyone at the combine. Chip Kelly has a tendency to draft players from the PAC-12, so it makes sense.

If Birds Pick Wide Receiver, Marqise Lee Should Be The Choice

Evaluating each Saints' potential first-round draft pick

The 2014 NFL Draft season, like every other one before it, is filled with plenty of misinformation.
