2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Marlon Lucky, RB, Nebraska

Marlon Lucky has seen a lot of change during his time at Nebraska; nevertheless he has been a steadying influence on the offense. He has spent most of his career splitting carries with other backs, but the 2007 season was his time to shine. And shine he did. Lucky rushed for over 1,000 yards and reached the end zone nine times on the ground. But it is not just the ground game that makes Lucky so dangerous; he is a superb pass catcher out of the backfield. During the 2007 season, he led the team with 75 receptions. Those 75 receptions resulted in 705 yards and three trips to the end zone. There are not many 215 pound backs that can be that productive in the passing game. If his senior season goes like his junior season, Lucky will end up ranking in the top five in rushing, receptions, receiving yards and all-purpose yards in Nebraska history. One concern is the fact that Lucky is going from the main rusher in 2007 to sharing the load in 2008. It is not due to Lucky performing poorly, but there is too much talent in the Huskers backfield to leave on the sidelines. In the NFL, Lucky's versatility could make him fit in just about any offense out there. In this day and age of multiple running backs, having a wide bodied guy who can block, pick up the tough yards and catch passes out of the backfield is not a bad thing.
