Overview

Martin is a two-year starter in Boise State's electric offense, in which he has had great production toward the end of his career (1299 yards and 16 TDs in 2011). He has strong athletic ability, with his footwork being his most outstanding trait. He can make people miss in the open field and in tight spaces. He is an effective runner between the tackles and can burst through the lane to take it the distance. What stands out most about Martin is his decisiveness as a ball carrier; he often hits the hole hard. He is a natural with the ball in his hands and will bring value to an NFL team as a special teams player, either as a return option or a contributor in the coverage game. Though ball security has been a concern in the past, Martin is an overall solid back and should expect to be selected in the second round because of his ability to contribute early in several different ways.

Analysis

Strengths

Martin is a highly productive back with a polished all-around game. He looks and plays like a starting NFL back. He has a lot of experience carrying the ball and has been a reliable runner when closing out games for Boise State. He is careful with the ball and a very savvy runner between the tackles with the athletic ability to break it outside.

Weaknesses

Martin is a very traditional back who is not extremely explosive. He is good in all facets, but some scouts will knock him for not being "outstanding" in any one particular area.
