Adrian Martinez Scouting Report

Here is what Dane Brugler of The Athletic had to say about Martinez heading into the draft:

Adrian Martinez was born in Hanford, Calif, and his mother (Deanna) passed away from cancer when he was age 10. After compiling more than 4,000 yards of offense as a junior, he missed his senior year at Clovis West (torn labrum). A four-star recruit, he flipped from Cal to Tennessee, then Nebraska late in the process. He started four seasons in Lincoln and set the school record for total offense (10,792 yards). He transferred to Kansas State for his final season but was hampered by a leg injury in the second half of 2022. Martinez is a decent-sized athlete to move the pocket or use his legs to pick up chunk yardage (45 rushing touchdowns). He is a creative passer with an adequate arm, but his ball placement and timing lack precision, often because of spotty vision and a failure to make onschedule decisions. Overall, Martinez has the physical tools and toughness to earn looks from NFL teams, but he must develop more consistency as a passer.
