Martin grades out to  a 7.70. He can come in and start right away if need be. Martin is a guy that has all the upside in the world. He has no idea how good he can be. He has untapped strength that under the right coach will be unleashed. His inexperience shows at times as he isn’t sure who to pick up, whether blocking at the second level, or on stunts/twists in pass protection. Still, you see the length, the athleticism, the ability to mirror in pass protection and drive defenders in the run game.
