I had given Markelle Martin a first round grade during the 2011 season. I was really intrigued by his athleticism and nose for the ball.
However, the Oklahoma State product did struggle a great deal in coverage, which led to many questions about his ability to translate to free safety at the next level. It wasn't as much about lack of athletic ability as it was about technique over the top.
These are things that can be fixed with seasoning and the right coaching.
I am going to focus on what Martin can bring to the National Football League, and what makes him an ideal pro.
