Martin selected No. 70 to 49ers
USC center Marcus Martin was selected in the third round with the No. 70 pick by the San Francisco 49ers in Friday's NFL Draft. Martin, who left USC with a year of eligibility remaining, was invited to Radio City Music Hall to participate in the NFL's draft festivities. He was the last of 30 players waiting to hear their name called from the green room at the draft. "I was just patiently waiting," Martin told the NFL Network after the pick. "Coach called me and said I was part of the Forty Niners so I'm proud to represent the organization." A graduate of Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw high school, Martin's selection to the 49ers means he will continue his football career in the state of California. "Everybody is excited," said Martin. "I am just blessed for this opportunity. I thank God, I thank everyone back home in Crenshaw, California and I want to thank everybody at USC." Martin joins Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward and Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde in the Niners 2014 draft class. He was the second center picked in the draft.
