|A first-team Mountain West Conference selection last year and a first-team Western Athletic Conference selection as a junior in 2010, Martin was a key contributor in Boise State's remaining one of the nation's elite teams. He ranked 23rd among all FBS running backs with 99.92 yards per game and finished with a career-high 1,299 rushing yards - his second 1,000-yard season - and 16 touchdowns. Martin had four carries for 19 yards in the Senior Bowl, helping the North to a 23-13 victory. He also had a good showing at the combine, finishing second among running backs to Florida's Chris Rainey in both the 3-cone drill with a time of 6.79 seconds and the 60-yard shuttle (11.29) while turning in a solid 40-yard dash time of 4.55 seconds. As a junior, Martin rushed for 1,260 yards and 12 TDs. He had a team-high 765 yards as a sophomore after starting the season on the defensive side of the ball before an injury to DJ Harper returned him to the backfield. Martin has also shown the ability to catch the ball with 28 receptions each of the last two seasons - including scoring plays of 79 and 71 yards. Despite his lack of height, Martin is perfectly willing to run between the tackles and is a decisive runner when attacking the hole. Beyond that initial burst, he has excellent footwork and can make people miss in the open field, but lacks top-level breakaway speed. Martin's strong combine moved him up in some scouts' eyes and he should be a second or third-round selection.
