When Jalin Marshall went unselected in the 2016 NFL Draft, some people threw dirt on his football career.
The New York Jets signed the electric wide receiver shortly after the draft ended, and Marshall has made them look smart. After showing a determined will to get better, Marshall cracked the starting lineup for the Jets' inaugural preseason game of the 2016 season.

He also showed value on kickoff return, burning the Jacksonville Jaguars on an 84-yard, second-quarter kickoff return, which can be seen in the video above.
Marshall also logged one reception for 10 yards through three and a half quarters of play.
As of this writing, the Jets lead the Jaguars, 17-10.
