Pugh for the Giants didn't do fine. think its a reach for Martin at 19
Agreed - with all due respect to him - and this is another reason why I hope we fix OL in FA. I want BPA available at 19. Someone interesting will slip. And I'd typically defer to an underclassman, one with Miami or Florida ties if possible. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix? Calvin Prior? Timmy Jernigan? Eric Ebron?
Post the link, I've read nothing but good things about Martin in the practice. And like I said, I'm fine with him at guard, to me he's perfectly built to play guard, and as I've said multiple times, for me this draft needs to be all about the run game.
Walter football was raving about Martin, I guess well see. As for short arms I'll say what I've always said about prospects, if the only negative thing people can say about them is a physical one, there probably pretty good.
And if you cant find tape where it effected them or where the team had to scheme because of it, it's probably a non-issue. Every game I watched, which I watch a lot of ND, that left side of the oline handled there business.
And drafting quality guards in the 1st rnd is acceptable these days with the way teams blitz inside. We got destroyed one on one outside, but the inside blitz really hurt us.
