|Draft Prediction:||Third Round|
2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Mike Martin, DT, Michigan
Martin is undersized at 6'2", but this allows him to win more often than he loses at the point of attack. Getting leverage and underneath the blocker's pad level sometimes puts him in a good position to release and get his arms around the ball-carrier. His best attribute may be just finding his way toward the running lane and collapsing on it, even while engaged in a block. His athleticism is marginal and he will need to improve his explosion off the line.
The combine could hurt him, but tape evaluation will keep him in the back of many GMs' minds. Martin's history as a wrestler helps him stay tenacious with a full-motor in the thick of the trenches.
Martin has gained traction recently due to his strength and overachieving style of play. He should be off the board no later than the fourth round.
