Position: WR
Class:  Sr
HT: 5'11"
WT: 185 lbs.
40 Time: 4.43
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors throughout his career as a punt returner. Senior totals included receiving numbers of 66 receptions/777 yards/4 TDs and averaged 11 yards on 25 punt returns and another score. Junior receiving numbers included 32/394/1 with an average of 14.2 yards on 16 punt returns and one touchdown.

Positives: Quick, explosive receiver who effectively doubles as a return specialist. Plays with excellent balance, body control and a flexible pass catcher who can make catches in contorted positions. Solid route runner that quickly gets into breaks and stays low on exit. Comes back to the ball out of routes or finds the soft spot in the defense to make himself an available target. Extends his hands to make the catch away from his frame. Effectively uses the sidelines. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception in stride. Displays terrific eye/hand coordination. Flashes the ability to beat defenders for the long ball.

Negatives: Not a true downfield threat. Will struggle in battles.

Analysis: Martin possesses the skill and ability to be a fourth receiver at the next level as well as impact as a return specialist.

Projection: 4th
