What the scouts are saying:

"Big, narrow-framed, long-levered defensive lineman who shows flashes of potential as a developmental, 4-3 left end, though he needs to fortify his base as a run defender and hone his technique as a pass rusher." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"The team that selects Martin hopes the UNC standout will show the same dedication towards improvement that Tuck has since earning a third round pick out of Notre Dame in 2005. Tuck has developed into a fine pass rusher for the Giants but his game remains reliant on his length and strength at the point of attack." (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)

"For the NFL, Martin could turn into a good player if he is drafted by a team that has a good coaching staff to develop him. Martin needs a stable defensive line coach who believes in him and wants to work with him. If Martin lands in a bad situation, he could easily be a blown pick. " (WalterFootball.com)
