Eric Martin is one of Nebraska's most physical defenders, but he has never quite found a spot to settle into during his career.
With that said, Martin might be a very intriguing prospect for NFL teams—particularly those who run 3-4 defenses.
Martin's 6'2", 260 pound frame is a little small for a traditional 4-3 defensive end, and a little big for a traditional 4-3 linebacker. However, his size suggests he could be a perfect fit for 3-4 outside linebacker.
Coincidentally, Martin happens to be one of the more tenacious, albeit inconsistent, pass rushers on the team. His combination of size, speed and physicality might make him a great candidate to terrorize quarterbacks from the rush linebacker spot.
It's unlikely that Martin will start as a senior, but expect Nebraska coaches to find creative ways to get him on the field regularly. If he breaks out and tallies an impressive sack total, his stock should improve immensely.
Martin also happens to be a ferocious special teams player, which is an underrated skill. Expect those collective talents to intrigue NFL teams.
Projected draft range: 6-FA
