OG from University of Illinois: Martin O'Donnell

A guy not on Scott's Ranking's I think is probably the number. AP 1st team All American

"O’Donnell started the final 10 games as an Illini redshirt freshman in 2004 and another 10 as a sophomore. In his final two seasons, O’Donnell started all 24 games. "

you have to be good to start 30 plus games in the Big 10 as a linemen.


I remember seeing him do very well against tOSU, I'll keep and eye on him against USC. He could easily be a top 3-4 guard in the draft.

he was a 5* out of HS... huge disappointment his first two years, came on strong last year, and played great this year.

He seemed very nimble against tOSU

Is he better as a run blocker or as a pass blocker?

I've read a lot about O'Donnell and Robert Felton having their stock rise a lot recently. Both have helped lead their teams to an impressive running game. I don't know much about O'Donnell, but i know Felton is another OG on the rise who has great agility and can apparantly play center as well. I don't know how much that will raise is value, but it's always nice to have a guy who can play all along the line, and willing to. (Somewhere online their is a video of him doing cartwheels for scouts...it's something to see if you've never seen a 310+ lb guy doing cartwheels)

How would he fit in a ZBS?

He might fit in at tackle, but that's it, IMO.

Are you talking about Xavier Fulton? He plays LT - not OG. And he made the switch from DE this year and has been really impressive.

I think he's talking about Robert Felton from Arkansas, same position as O'Donnell different school. Fulton seems intriguing though, I'll have to keep an eye on him.

Ya i was, my bad for not mentioning the school. Fulton definately does seem like an intriguing prospect and I'll have to keep my eye on him.
