Bio: Former Florida transfer who posted a completion percentage of 61.3% (2,959 yards passing) for 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2005. Junior totals included 61.9%/2,792/22/9. Also the team's punter, averaging 43.2 yards on 34 punts last year. Played behind Rex Grossman while at Florida.
Positives: Nice-sized passer with an NFL arm. Patient, buys time for receivers and makes good decisions in the pocket. Sells ball fakes, goes to the safe underneath outlet and works to make positive plays. Zips the outs, threads the ball between defenders and drives the deep throw.
Negatives: Indecisive and tends to wilt as the pocket collapses. Tends to float in the pocket and does not set his feet. Marginal accuracy and sprays passes about the field.
Analysis: A nice-sized, hard-working signal caller, Martin has the physical skills to play at the next level. Must improve his fundamentals, yet a practice squad player with long-term prospects.
What Packers said: "He has good size for the position. He's pretty athletic. He runs well. Mechanically, he's pretty sound. He has a strong arm. He threw the ball with good anticipation for the most part. He has a lot of tools to work with. I think he'll be a good addition for us." - quarterbacks coach Tom Clements.
What Martin said about playing behind Rex Grossman at Florida: "I backed him up his junior year. Rex was as good a player as I've been around. Just watching him make the plays he did taught you a little bit about competing. He wanted to throw a touchdown pass every play. Certainly now that I have a chance to get up there with Brett Favre and watch him play is a tremendous opportunity that I'll be looking forward to, and competing a little bit myself."
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 309 40 time: 5.08 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Played tight end for the Wolf Pack for three seasons. He weighed 256 pounds as a sophomore and 280 pounds as a junior. Switched off at tackle in Nevada's potent "Pistol" offense (449 yards per game).
Positives: Has good quickness and experience in zone-blocking offense. Has played both left and right tackle. Moves well in space.
Negatives: Lacks experience as an offensive lineman after playing three seasons at tight end.
Analysis: Moll has the quickness and ability to be a good offensive tackle in the NFL, but needs some work. Whether he plays or not for the Packers, or any NFL team, depends on his progress in mini-camps and training camp.
How he fits in: Moll will compete for a backup spot as a swing tackle along Green Bay's offensive line.
What Packers said: "From a physical standpoint, his frame fits our mold, so to say. He's a physical guy. He runs very well for a man of his size. Character-wise, he's going to be an excellent fit."
What Moll said on making the transition from tight end to tackle: "I weighed 250 in January of 2005 and that's when my coach came up to me and asked me to make the move. That night, I went to one of the buffets and started eating like a lineman and, by spring ball that year, I put on about 15-20 pounds. I learned to have a new attitude playing football, going out there and trying to kick peoples' butts. I was very well-coached. With hand placement and everything I've learned a lot. Obviously, I know I have a lot of room to expand my knowlege because of only having one year. It's all just so unbelievable right now."
