The Tennessee Titans have made their third pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, and they chose Mike Martin, DT, Michigan. Martin is 6-2 and weighs 304. His profile on MGOBLUE says that he played nose tackle last season for the Wolverines.

Here is what Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press had to say about him:

Martin is one of the draft's strongest players, as shown in the NFL combine, and he has an uncommon motor, shown repeatedly on film. His ability to continue to fight through double-teams and chase down ballcarriers from behind, while still producing in three to four different defenses during his career, shows his adaptability and versatility. His challenge is when teams get into measurables, as one site listed him as the fifth-shortest defensive tackle in the draft at 6-feet-1, while most of the top tackles are 6-4 or 6-5. Yet Martin has combated that at every turn, with a strong Senior Bowl performance, a powerful combine workout and his impressive interview skills. The character can only work in his favor.

It is not surprising to see this front office go after a guy who is known for his effort and is impressive in interviews. Adding him to the middle of the defense next to Jurrell Casey will give the Titans a whole lot of beef in the middle.
