Doug Martin #22 RB
Height: 5-9 Weight: 215 Age: 24
Born: 1/13/1989 Oakland , CA
College: Boise State
Experience: 2nd season
High School: St. Mary's HS [Stockton, CA]
Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Pick (Overall): 31 (31)
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.
