Marcel Reece named among AFC most versatile

Marcel Reece #45 of the Oakland Raiders is tackled by Chauncey Davis #94 of the Chicago Bears at O.co Coliseum on November 27, 2011

ESPN put together a list of the most versatile players in both the AFC and the NFC and as anyone who is familiar with the Raiders would expect, Marcel Reece was among them. Here is what they had to say:

9. Marcel Reece, FB, Oakland Raiders

His coaches really like him as a lead blocker in their run-oriented offense, and he is improving his physicality at the point of attack. He isn't used a lot as a runner, but when he does get touches, he has good speed and explosiveness, and he could be effective on draws and quick-hitting plays. However, it's in the passing game that he shows his versatility the most. He has good hands and receiving skills, and he is probably the only FB in the league who can flex or lineup wide and run a vertical route. When that happens, he usually gets a great one-on-one matchup.
