Twyon Martin
Position: DT
Class:  Sr
School: Connecticut
HT: 6'1"
WT: 292 lbs.
40 Time: 5.25
Conference: Big East
Biography: Four-year starter who finished with 48 tackles/9.5 tackles for loss/3.5 sacks as a senior after putting up 38/5/3 the prior year.

Positives: Quick one-gap tackle who covers a lot of area on the field. Plays with good pad level, gets leverage on opponents and slides off blocks laterally. Changes direction well, fluid moving around the field and shows the ability to pursue ballcarriers from the back side. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Fires off the snap with a quick first step and squeezes through the gaps of the offensive line.

Negatives: Lacks strength on the inside and handled by a single blocker. Does not possess natural bulk and struggles getting through the wash.

Analysis: Martin has been durable and productive on the college level yet lacks classic NFL size. His quickness, ability to change direction and movement skills will help him get looks as a three-technique tackle.

Projection: FA
