Prospect Profile: Derrick Martin


Full Name: Derrick Martin School: Wyoming Pos: CB

Ht: 5-10 Wt: 202 40: 4.55 Year: 3Jr

Bio: Two-year starter who totaled 47/3/7 as a junior after career-best numbers of 60/3/17 the prior year.

Pos: Athletic cover corner with solid natural skills. Quick-footed in reverse, fluid transitioning off the line and plays faster than his 40 time. Possesses a burst of closing and recovery speed. Quickly breaks to the throw and plays with explosion.

Neg: Not a physical defensive back who jumps into the mix. Lacks strength at the point. Self-admittedly gives up on plays.

Analysis: After an outstanding sophomore campaign, Martin's play could best be described as uninspired last year. Has the physical skills and fundamental abilities to play at the next level but must quickly turn up all aspects of his game.
