Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs.
  • He’s rangy and instinctive when he’s looking into the backfield as a zone defender.
  • Martial shows good quickness off the line of scrimmage and flashes the violent hands to win around the edge.
  • Gets pressures on inside stunts and was too explosive for college guards to handle.
  • Martial can move laterally and chase in pursuit. A tough, violent tackler with a non-stop motor, Martial also shows good awareness when dropping into coverage.
  • An undersized but explosive athlete, Is a sideline-to-sideline playmaker. He’s a fluid mover who reads, reacts and accelerates quickly.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks functional strength in the pass rush, struggling to disengage and too easily pushed past the pocket.
  • Can be too hesitant when Martial doesn't find the ball immediately.
  • Slips off too many ballcarriers and needs to complete tackles - will go for the big hit instead of consistently wrapping up.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
