Stats (CFB stats.com)
Really good compact build…patience with good field vision are probably his best attributes….pretty good receiver…durable…shifty…some kick return ability..productivity, work ethic, drive, finisher, big play ability, always gives 100% effort, shifty…
Doesn’t have great top end speed…plays in a kind of goofy offense…On his build you think he’d break even more tackles, loses his balance quickly when hit, though he can make defenders miss, and he does break arm tackles (not a big knock more of an observation)…competition level
Player Comparison: Knowshon Moreno, Denver Broncos
Jesse’s player comparison: His build instantly reminds you of Maurice Jones Drew has will his versatility and field vision. Jones is more powerful than Martin though, and a touch faster. A Poor mans’ Maurice Jones Drew, I guess.
There’s a lot to like about Martin. He can catch the ball a bit, he’ll be a pretty good weapon in the screen game. He really has good field vision and he’s shifty. He’ll break arm tackles, and is a guy who can carry the ball 15-20 times a game and keep the chains moving. A really solid all around prospect. He’ll pick up the blitz as well and will find himself drafted sometime during the second day of the draft.
NFLmocks presason bio
Extremely productive running back and will be in his third year starting for the Broncos. Martin is the type of guy who will be an excellent value pick in the draft. He is not the biggest running back, but he is capable of breaking the game wide open with a big run. Powerful running back who is not afraid to stick his shoulder down and challenge anyone willing to take him on. Probably one of the most underrated running backs in the country because Boise State is not a running offense. As pass oriented as the BSU offense is, this guy has been extremely productive from the RB position, and is a solid receiver to boot. Shifty and speedy with a thick lower body, he will be the kind of guy who NFL teams hate to play against because he gives so much effort and can do so many things for your team. Has incredible potential as a zone runner, and could be a major steal on draft weekend. Over the last two years, he has carried the ball 330 times for 2,025 yards and 27 touchdowns, averaging over six yards per carry in the process. Also had 28 receptions for 338 yards and two more touchdowns last year as a junior. Will not go down without a fight, and seems to pride himself on getting yards after contact.
This is nice. There is video for Martin vs Nevada in back to back years. I like that.
