Draft Analysis:

Mayock's take: "This makes a ton of sense. He's a three-down back. When I put the tape on, he's got a surprising burst. He's patient, too, behind the offensive line. I really like him."

Overview

Martin had 1,299 yards and 16 TDs in Boise State's electric offense in 2011. He has strong athletic ability, with outstanding footwork. 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. 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. 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.

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 and has been reliable 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.
