BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who nailed down the right guard position as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Martin has the skills necessary to be used in a power running offense at the next level. He must pick up the intensity of his game, play hard for 60 minutes, and do more than just rely on his natural skills before any team will take a chance on him.

NEGATIVES: Lumbers about the field and looks marginally athletic. Falls off blocks, lacks agility, and at times struggles to finish. Lacks footwork in space and struggles in motion. Not known as a self starter and needs to be pushed.

ANALYSIS: Mammoth blocker with the ability to annihilate opponents. Immediately gets his hands into defenders, strong at the point, and stays square. Drives opponents off the ball, and gets movement run blocking. Large enough to engulf defenders and then completely turn them from the action. Displays good hand jolt, works well with teammates, and keeps his head on a swivel.

PROJECTION: FA
