Strengths

Strengths: Good height and has a wiry, strong frame. ... Flies around the field. ... Gets to the opposite sideline in a hurry. ... His speed and coverage skills take away opponents' deep routes, allowing the defensive line to wreak havoc. ... Can work through trash and find the ball. ... Has nice length to wrap up in the open field. ... Despite his height, Martin has the low, smooth backpedal necessary to play corner. ... Has speed to blitz effectively from 10 yards out or close quickly on inside runs. ... Used as a gunner on punt returns. Weaknesses: May become a safety/corner "tweener." ... Instincts are questionable and he will take bad angles to the ballcarrier. ... Gets sucked in on play-action. ... Is not a consistent tackler in space as he fails to break down, drops his head or tries to tackle the ballcarrier's shoulder pads. ... Not the physical force putting fear into receivers over the middle. ... Is only adequate against receiver blocks downfield. ... Redshirted in 2006 after having surgery on both shoulders (labrum) prior to spring practice. ... Missed four games in 2007 with broken bones in his left hand. ... Turned 24 during his senior season.
