Our sister site “With the First Pick” has been busy at work scouting the top talent in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft including North Carolina defensive end Kareem Martin.
Martin made a name at North Carolina for developing as a superb pass rusher and run stopper, but just what does he hold for an NFL team? Read what our friends at WTFP have to say!
Kareem Martin at his best is one of the more impressive players in the country. He has shown he can be a terrific run stopper and pass rusher with the ability to take advantage of his arm length, stack and shed and can create penetration. The issue with Martin is his motor, stamina and ability to be consistent. He can also work to improve his pad level and how he comes out of his stance. If a team can just get more of those high level plays out of Martin, he can be a good player for a long time. Martin projects as a top 100 pick because of what he can do now in addition to his upside, looking like a player who should be a nice asset in a rotation initially, but could develop into an effective starting defensive end.
Martin is projected to be a second or third round pick and ranks in the top-ten of defensive ends. To read the full scouting report, click here!
