Draft Analysis:

Mayock's take: "This is a pass-rushing interior threat. Martin comes in, and he'll be explosive for them. This is a defensive tackle who is active and can stop the run, as well as pass rush from the inside."

Overview

Martin has started the past three years inside for Michigan after making a nice impact as a true freshman. He is a tough and durable player who relies on his strength to control blockers and make plays. His strength is what defines him.

Analysis

Strengths

Martin has a good feel for offensive lines and block schemes and how to slant inside of lineman to get into the backfield. He is very strong against the run and can neutralize any blocker. He can hold up a block, and then shed to get to the ball. He plays with instincts and is strong.

Weaknesses

Martin can struggle in space and is a stout player at the point, but he really doesn't have much production rushing the passer. Once in the backfield, he has a tough time running down the quarterback, and his athletic ability can be exposed in space.
