MarShawn Lloyd made the move to USC in 2023 after spending his first three college seasons at South Carolina (redshirt freshman year after torn ACL). Although he posted the highest dominator rating of his career in 2022 at 18% in his final season as a Gamecock despite missing four games with an injury.
In his final and last season at USC, he posted a 15% dominator rating with nine TDs and 816 rushing yards.
Lloyd was one of the biggest risers during the 2024 Senior Bowl, which shouldn't go unnoticed. All-Star game performances influence draft capital, which can make or break some of these later-selected RBs.
However, this could end up being a potential pitfall, given Lloyd's yards per play at 2.4 is very poor compared to the rest of the class.
At 5-foot-9 and 220 pounds, Lloyd looks like a carbon copy of another former Senior Bowl RB riser - Dameon Pierce. And like Pierce, he comes with red flags of a poor overall dominator rating as a player who could never become the true featured RB in a college backfield.
Despite his strengths as a tackle-breaker (like Pierce), it might not be enough to truly vault him into consistent fantasy production if he can't stand out against other RBs. Again - like Pierce - Lloyd never surpassed 150 touches in any season, with only three games of 20+ touches. Also dealt with injuries consistently, which contributed to smaller workloads.
Lloyd posted the No. 1 elusive rating among his draft-eligible RBs in 2023, per PFF. Pierce ranked third in that category coming out of Florida two years ago. Still it's hard to ignore that a healthy Lloyd at 220 pounds with 4.46 wheels could easily be the 1A lead inside a weaker NFL backfield.
