2013 stats:

82 tackles, 21.5 TFL, 11.5 sacks, 3 PD, 3 FF


3rd round, 84th overall (Arizona Cardinals)

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,

"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,

"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. " (
