All-division NCAA career sacks leader (56) will try to make an NFL roster on the offensive side. A TE in high school, he scored the East’s lone offensive touchdown in the East-West Shrine Game on a pass from J.T. Barrett. At pro day workouts, Martin clocked a faster 40 time than Oklahoma FB Dimitri Flowers ran at the combine and was just off the pace of USC’s Ronald Jones II. He also did more bench reps than any RB in Indianapolis. Also holds the Division II career mark with 92 ½ tackles for loss, never missing a start in four seasons. Tallied 15 ½ sacks and 26 ½ TFLs as a senior despite nearly constant double teams, while his 82 total tackles were No.2 on the roster. Also forced two fumbles and recovered three, one of which was returned 74 yards for a TD.
