Doug Martin, RB, Boise State

The engine that drives the Boise State offense is not powered by quarterback Kellen Moore alone. Doug Martin is having one of the more impressive senior campaigns in the country and thus, putting himself squarely in the mix to hear his name called in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Martin is a thick back that runs low to the ground. He lacks straight ahead speed, but he accelerates into the line of scrimmage very well. His ability to move well in crowded spaces helps him a great deal. Using agility and good balance, he's able to fight for yards after contact.

NFL scouts can appreciate those qualities, but he does absorb a lot of contact (regardless of whether he goes to the ground or not). What's important is that he is always fighting toward daylight and churning his legs for yards. He runs well in open spaces since he can plant his foot and go. The Broncos don't use him a lot in their passing game, but he shows good hands.

Martin is currently pushing and competing to be the second running back drafted in the 2012 NFL Draft. He could hear his name called in the bottom half of the first round.
