05/12/14 - QUOTES TO NOTE: "My age doesn't have anything to do with my ability to play on the field. i think if a player is able to focus on being strong, being fast, being explosive and doing the things that he needs to do to excel at this position, no matter the age, than the player can be great and will be great." Third-round center Marcus Martin on potentially starting as a 20 year old. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 3/70 -- Marcus Martin, C, 6-3, 320, Southern Cal...Regarded by many as the top center available, the 49ers believe Martin can come in and compete right away for the starting job with Daniel Kilgore, who recently received a three-year contract extension. Martin has the size, physicality and technique that make him a perfect fit in the middle of an already-elite offensive line. He's also versatile enough to play either guard position which is an added plus going forward. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 48/1. *Marcus Martin, C, Southern Cal, 6-3, 320, 5.28, 2...Thick plugger who has plenty of strength but doesn't seem to be the brute you expect. Does not necessarily fire out and consume defenders, but uses his girth to effectively wall them off or barge through to create a wide running lane. Tweaked his knee in November, didn't run at the combine, then ran 40 yards at pro day with a disappointing best of 5.52 seconds. Frankly: Until he punches up the urgency and physicality of his game, versatility may be the calling card that Martin leverages into the beginning of an NFL career. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
