Draft Scout Kareem Martin News
06/06/14 - Rookie Kareem Martin, a third-round pick, already has gained 10 pounds since arriving in Arizona, Arians said. That would put Martin in the 285-pound range, and Arians thinks the 6-6 defensive end/outside linebacker can accommodate more weight.
"He can be 300 before you know it and still keep his quickness and his pass-rush ability," Arians said.
05/13/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: ARIZONA CARDINALS: Round 3/84 -- Kareem Martin, DE/OLB, 6-6, 272, North Carolina...The Cardinals targeted a need: a young pass rusher. Martin could play in passing situations and on special teams right away. He could develop into end Darnell Dockett's eventual replacement. The Cardinals wanted to get taller and more athletic at defensive end, and they did with Martin. - The Sports Xchange

05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 74/7. Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina, 6-6, 272, 4.68, 2-3...When a player has all the physical ability necessary, but plays up to apparent potential only in his senior year, scouts raise a red flag. Martin had a classic red flag 2013 senior season with 20 tackles for a loss, including 11 sacks, after registering only four in each of two previous seasons. He sustained interest with excellent workouts and game at Senior Bowl. Still, his value is as limited as his range, which is such that he may only be an asset as a base left end in a 4-3 alignment, where he can be disruptive. Frankly: An NFL team must have specific need to make this run-stopping end a valuable second-round pick in a pass-happy league. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - Five players who should be on the Buffalo Bills' draft radar...DE Kareem Martin, North Carolina: The Bills switch back to the 4-3 under new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz could lead to improved numbers for defensive end Mario Williams and pass-rushing defensive tackle Kyle Williams. Right defensive end Jerry Hughes, on the other hand, previously struggled in this role and therefore it is far from certain that the 6-2, 254-pounder will be able to build upon his breakout campaign (46 tackles, 10 sacks) that he enjoyed a season ago at outside linebacker. Schwartz employs a highly aggressive attack which could draw out the talent in the enigmatic Martin, whose Combine numbers compare favorably to presumptive No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney and showed steady improvement over his final three starting seasons at Chapel Hill. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
