    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.

    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.

    I have no problem with what I put in bold! We NEED to put a run stuffing DT next to Casey.. Martin has a chance to start day 1 I'd say!

    And I can care less if he can't produce sacks.. that's what Klug is for!

    Mayock's pick analysis and why we passed Thompson, IMO:

    "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." - NFL.com

    Agreed. We get the stuffing ability of Casey plus the rushing ability of Klug. Slam dunk, IMO.

    Maybe, but the 2nd is more palatable for that pick. I have no problem since he was the top 4-3 OLB on many boards, and seldom worse than 3rd. Sean Spence is who I thought we'd go after, or hoped, rather, but we got a rd 1 talent in the 2nd.

    Molk? I'm down. We'd all be like, "Got Molk?"

    Cheese aside, I do like the OL player twofer, a la Britt and McCourty.
