2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Keshawn Martin, WR, Michigan State
Although he isn't a crisp route runner, Martin moves very well in open spaces and can break quickly to gain separation. His speed is also a strength and he'll be able to get behind defenders. His experience as both a kick and punt returner only adds to his value.
Martin has average hands and will need to learn to come back to the ball on some routes. He also lets the ball get trapped against his frame. Martin doesn't offer much with yards after the catch or contact. He is looking to evade and run into open spaces with the ball in his hands.
Martin joining the Texans in the fourth round is a good sign. His skill set matches that of current teammate Jacoby Jones, who has underachieved for years now. Although Houston also drafted DeVier Posey, Martin will certainly have the opportunity to compete for a potential starting role. Houston obviously feels their No. 2 WR spot is open for the taking.
