View Full Version : Doug Martin, RB Boise State

He is a pretty tough runner from what I've seen and according to NFLdraftscout runs like a 4.49 40.
He is small at 5'9, but pretty bulky at 202.
Kind of reminds me of MJD (build wise).
Stats this year:
201 Attempts 1260 RYD 12 TDs

Very good candidate to be a part of a split backfield but not special enough to be a franchise RB. I like him alot.

I was going to make a thread about this guy, hes a very consistent back and i like his build. I like the comparison to MJD, from a build standpoint. He has been pretty explosive this year and i think he will get a chance somewhere in the league.

I know a lot of people will say his stats are the result of playing against subpar competition and that does certainly hold truth to it to some degree.
However, this guy has the build, and the skill set to succeed against any level of competition.
Does anyone think he will come out this year? Boise is going to lose a lot of guys this year, and while I'm not really sure what there recruiting class looks like...I highly doubt it can replace the production of all these guys leaving on offense (Moore/Potter/Young/Pettis) and the guys leaving on defense. Without as strong of a team, I doubt Martin would get more publicity now than he would next year. Considering the success he has had I think it would be in his best interest to declare.

Doubt he comes out this year. He'd only be a late round pick.

those numbers from their combine, if accurate, show how athletic this dude really is. I think he stays, but if he goes he'll test well and go in the first two days.
