2012 NFL Draft Research Report: RB Joe Martinek, Rutgers

Joe Martinek was an interesting study for us. A former all-state, record-setting high school player as a RB, who began his Rutgers career being looked at as a possible defensive player. Once given a shot at RB as a freshman, Martinek became the main workload RB for the team and the leading rusher for Rutgers as a sophomore. An ankle injury derailed his 2010 junior season, and then Martinek finished out 2011 as a quiet pass-catching fullback. Martinek blew away his Pro-Day workouts with numbers similar to Trent Richardson, but there were several hundred less ESPN reporters there to fawn all over it. Could Martinek be a giant diamond in the rough for the 2012 NFL Draft? To see our report on Joe Martinekwww.collegefootballmetrics.com

2012 NFL Draft Research Report: WR Greg Childs, Arkansas

Greg Childs had an unusual journey to the 2012 NFL Draft. Childs is a perfect-sized NFL WR (6’3″, 220), and after a big sophomore season at Arkansas, Childs appeared on his way to a future top WR prospect for the NFL. Childs suffered a major injury in his junior season, Childs rehabbed back to produce very weak output (and no TDs) in 8 games in 2011. Childs has had nice NFL Combine and Pro-Day workouts, which then begs the question — if Childs physical skills are on an NFL-level now, why did he have such a porous 2011?
