Surprised you are only keeping your eye on Andre Branch and Mike Martin. I think both would be excellent. Pryor keeps getting hurt and Martin is so athletic. I love him in nickel situations.Mike Martin Quick facts.
1. Won the Michigan Wrestling State Championship in his junior season (after having no prior wrestling experience),
2. Broke T.J. Duckett's former Michigan high school shot put record on his way to a state championship.
3. Appeared in 12 games as a true freshman. In a reserve roll had 20 tackle, 4 for loss and 2 sacks.
4. Started at Nose 12 games as a sophomore. 51 tackles, 6.5 for loss, 2 sacks. Voted team's best DL.
5. Second-team All-Big Ten honors as a junior. Started 12 games, registering 37 tackles, six for loss and 2.5 sacks. He missed the Purdue Game on Nov. 13, 2010, due to an ankle injury that plagued him for the rest of the season but he played through it.
6. Second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2011, racking up a career-high 54 tackles and three sacks to go along with six tackles for loss.
7. He owed Mike Brewster at Senior Bowl practices.
8. Martin is an undersized nose tackle with loads of experience in a 3-4 defense. But he lacks a consistent anchor against double teams and just does not have the right frame to be an NFL starter. Because of his ability to penetrate against one-on-one blocks, Martin could be a solid rotation player in a 4-3 scheme as a three-technique tackle and move to the nose on passing downs.
9. Voted a 2011 season captain by teammates during fall camp … named to the Bednarik Award and Rotary Lombardi Award preseason watch lists.
10. 7th at Combine in 40 at 4.88. Of the tackles projected to be drafted ahead of him, only Fletcher Cox was faster.
11. His 36 reps at 225 were second best behind Poe.
12. His 7.19 cone was third best. Cox was #1 and a nobody was #2.
13. He was second in the Shuttle at 4.25 behind the same nobody.
14. He was 5th in the vertical at 33.5. This from a guy who is 306 lbs.
I love Martin (and not because we share the same last name) as a late 2nd to mid 3rd round pick as a situational nickel DT.
