One of the biggest wildcards in the draft

Strange mix of seemingly limitless potential and bizarre under-performance in college. Best of luck to you Martavis.


While there is certainly some truth to the underperformance

label, I also think it's a bit unfair as well as inaccurate, as Martavis was blessed/cursed to be a WR at Clemson at the same time as Nuk Hopkins and Sammy Watkins. Can't help but wonder what kind of numbers he could have put up otherwise, or how he would be perceived.

Exactly, and that is basically what I just said. Sammy Watins being the go to guy this past season held Martavis's numbers back.

Some team will get more for there money. A diamond in the ruff. He will make some highlight catches for some team. Yes Bryant is still developing. And will get better as time passes.

IMO, Martavis will be the biggest steal in this years draft. If it wasn't for Sammy, Martavis would have had a monster year. And he would have been the one the scouts were slobbering over. Even behind Sammy, he made some great catches!!!


No doubt he had stiff competition on his own team

But from reports saying he was arguably the fastest on the team paired with being significantly taller than both Nuk and Sammy I feel it's fair to say he didn't perform as we all may have thought he could. He still was a phenomenal player for us and went out with a bang in the OB. Still wondering why we never just lobbed it up to him more in man-on-man coverage during the year.


If I had a quarter for every time I hollered "Just lob it to

him!" I'd be a wealthy man. Both good points that espn never considered when profiling Sammy- His down year?? Nuk says "Um..hello??" Talh was only allowed one football fwiw.

His day will come.


He didn't underperform in college, there were other WR's...

on the depth chart. Sammy Watkins, Deandre Hopkins, and Jaron Brown being ahead of him on the depth chart limited his playing time his first 2 years. He did have an issue with drops, but the last 2/3rds of this season that wasn't an issue.

I'd have to say he was on his game after the UGA game.

It did take some time for Talh(and coaches I guess) to get comfy enough to go to him more, especially in crucial plays. I worried he would never turn the corner but thankful for him he finally did. OB game- wow.

I'd like to see him go to Carolina in the 4th round, but he probably won't be there or even when they pick in the 3rd. I feel like someone will reach for him in the 2nd.
