http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/college_player_scouting_report.html&player=37589

A solidly built free safety prospect who isn't afraid to mix it up and attack the run game downhill. However, struggles to set the edge, lacks balance into contact and can routinely be blown out of plays. Will run the alley inside and is a solid wrap-up guy in tighter quarters. However, isn't a real consistent open field tackler and will struggle to bring down backs in space and doesn't take the best of angles in pursuit in any areas of the game. Plays out of control at times and will whiff on his fair share of tackles.

Isn't as instinctive as you would like at the free safety position. Gets caught with his eyes in the backfield, will bite on play fakes and take himself out of plays. However, displays natural movement skills. Sits into his drop well, keeps his feet under him and looks balanced out of his breaks. Generates a burst when asked to click and close on throws in front of him and displays the ball skills/coordination to adjust and come down with the grab. Runs well for the position in the secondary, plays fast and has good enough speed to play in the deep half. Gets a bit upright and leggy when asked to turn and run in man coverage. However, does well in off man, staying patient in his drop, reading the route and calmly opening up his hips and re-directing.

Impression: An NFL caliber athlete who struggles with instincts at times and isn't a real consistent tackler. Nothing more than a later round pick because of it at this stage.

Maybe Martinek will find his way here eventually like Blount did. Not giving up hope. I think that kid is great.

Thanks timbuc!

I like the athletic part... but "stuggles with instincts" isn't so good, that's hard to teach.

Like the Johnson signing?

Nice! I was surprised he went undrafted.
