Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Martin is a scrappy pass catcher with underrated return skills. He has a knack for turning short passes into big gains, and gives the Texans a potential solution to their return-game woes.

  • 5'11" Height
  • 31 1/2" Arm Length
  • 192LBS. Weight
  • 9 1/4" Hands

Overview

Martin is an explosive mover who is quick off the snap. A two-year starter for Michigan State and productive after short catches, he can take a bubble screen the distance. Athletic enough to be the superior guy against most DBs. He is a very good speed-variance route runner who can keep corners on their heels and toes. He has fourth-round value.

Analysis

Strengths

Martin is good at varying his speed. He can make ridiculous moves with his feet while still running full speed. He is explosive when moving off the ball and gets to top speed very quickly. This is usually how he dials up his routes, as he is into them before the corner is even ready. He uses this same foot quickness to get open at the top of routes. He has the speed to be a deep threat at the next level. He will work a lot of screens looking to get behind blocks of bigger receivers outside.

Weaknesses

Martin is uninspired when it comes to blocking. Despite decent size, he isn't very strong and just looks completely uninvolved. The same can be said when going across the middle; he is unreliable with defenders draped around him and needs to be completely open to finish the play.
