How does Kareem Martin stack up as a 4-3 defensive end prospect in the group behind Jadeveon Clowney for the 2014 draft?

Looks the part but doesn't seem like a particularly explosive athlete. Needs a couple of strides to accelerate when he comes out of his stance. He looks like he's an instinctive run defender and he's got the frame and heavy hands to keep blockers off his frame. I think he's a power end in a 40 front, rather than a go-to pass rusher type.

I look at Martin compared to Trent Murphy and ask myself, what seperates these prospects, outside of motor? My answer, nothing.

This kid is going to be a really great value in the mid rounds.

Murphy is far more quick twitch than Martin. Better athlete overall.

I disagree. I wage that when the combine tests come around they show very comparable measurables. The difference is Trent Murphy had a inconsistent motor up until this season, like Martin, but has found a way to kick it up a notch.

I just was thinking, value wise, a team with coaches that can 'coach up' DL talent would be wise to target Martin in the 4th over a guy like Murphy in the 1st.

I really, really dont see the quick twitch in Trent Murphy. He reminds me much more of a pure DE version of Derick Wolfe than a explosive athlete like Witney Mercilus.

Could he be a 3-4 OLB?

I had high hopes for Martin coming into this season but he honestly shows up on tape more often than not looking like he doesn't even care. Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane type a la Christian Ballard out of Mizzou a few years back or, yeah I'll go there, another UNC prospect who had "effort" questions - Marvin Austin.

If someone can light a fire under Martin's butt (the track record for UNC D-Linemen of late isn't very good - Coples is an outlier not the standard), he could be a solid if unspectacular DE (Robert Ayers is a fair comparison), but he doesn't have great closing speed and isn't as athletic as some will want to make him out to be. Couple that with an truly inconsistent motor (one that when it's off, he really sputters and just gets stonewalled or washed out of plays by a single blocker way too easily - refer to the game vs South Carolina this season) and there's a reason why there's not a whole heck of a lot of high-end talk about the guy in a class that's lacking a standout #2 4-3 DE option.

To me when his motor runs cold, it effects his pass rushing. He always seems to be at least adequate, and sometimes downright dominant, in the run game. He has the power and length to really set the edge. If his motor ran hot like some other less physically gifted talents, he could be a 1st/2nd round pick IMO. Even with his motor questions, he is a great bargain in the 4th round.

Don't forget Robert Quinn.

kareem martins production this year was outstanding. i think he could sneak into the 1st round with a good combine.

Is there anyone you would compare him to that's in the NFL today?
