According to Doric Sam of Bleacher Report:

Before being selected by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 2024 NFL draft, rookie running back MarShawn Lloyd reportedly was coveted by a pair of NFC East teams.

Per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Dallas Cowboys “had shown enough pre-draft love” to Lloyd that the former USC speedster “thought the Cowboys would be one of the possible teams to draft him.” Also, the New York Giants “had (their) sights on” Lloyd “as a future lead back but didn’t have a pick between Nos. 71 and 107.” The Packers ended up selecting him at No. 88.

After transferring from South Carolina to USC for the 2023 season, Lloyd racked up 820 yards and nine touchdowns on 116 carries while also adding 13 receptions for 232 yards, averaging 17.8 yards per catch.

Lloyd joins a Packers backfield at which two-time Pro Bowler Josh Jacobs, who spent his first five years in Las Vegas with the Raiders, leads the way. In addition, the Packers resigned experienced backup A.J. Dillon, who was set to become a free agent.

The Cowboys passed on drafting a running back with any of their eight picks after losing out on Lloyd. Meanwhile, the Giants selected Purdue running back Tyrone Tracy Jr. in the fifth round.
