Maxwell Ready To Shine On This Side Of The Pond

Assigned to the Hamburg Sea Devils this spring by the San Francisco 49ers , who drafted him as a seventh-round pick in 2005, former University of Oregon wide receiver Marcus Maxwell, (right) made the most of his opportunity, finishing second in the league in touchdown receptions (seven) and first in yards per catch (17). Moreover, the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder put an exclamation mark on his European career in the league's final game, the World Bowl on June 23. Facing double coverage much of the time, Maxwell snagged five passes from batterymate Casey Bramlett for 127 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-27 victory over Frankfurt.

Now, Maxwell feels ready to compete for playing time on a 49ers receiving corps that includes Darrell Jackson, Arnaz Battle, Ashley Lelie, Brandon Williams and draftee Jason Hill. His goal now, he told Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle, is to somehow maintain his playing edge into August workouts. As a college player, the native of Hercules, Calif., was an enigma. Blessed with good speed and soft hands (his nickname was "Mr. Hands" in Hamburg, however that's said in German), he still caught only 25 passes as a Duck senior. Part of the problem was that Demetrius Williams, now a rising star with the Baltimore Ravens , was the go-to guy for the Ducks.
