2011 Spartan Nation Football Profile: #82 WR, KR, PR Keshawn “KMART” Martin

Expectation:Â All Big Ten PR, Starting WR Special Teams Captain

Height:  5’11”

Weight:Â 185#

2011 Eligibility: Senior 

EXP:Â 3 letters

Status:Â All Big Ten PR, Starting WR

Strengths: KMART can do amazing things with a football. Forget Harry Potter, this young man is a true wizard. We all know what he can do as a PR/KR so I won’t go there. Let’s look at the Notre Dame game. In the fourth quarter with 13:15 left to go in regulation, MSU was at their own 22 with a first and ten. He ran a precision flag route and caught the ball for a 20+ yard gain. When he runs those precise routes and catches the ball he is unstoppable.

Weakness: In the first quarter of the WMU with 5:34 to go and the Broncos facing a fourth and two KMART was back as a PR. The ball bounced and he tried to field it. He fumbled at his own 19. The biggest weakness that he shows is also when he makes easy drops as a receiver. CONCENTRATION. Sometimes he lacks it. He has to make smart decisions and concentrate. He is the ONLY one that can stop KMART.

Final Analysis: KMART will play in the NFL. No doubt at all. Whether it is as a specialist and a WR is up to him. He could be an All Big Ten WR if he would avoid costly easy drops as a receiver. He has the talent. Don’t let the dreads fool you. He is a kind, gentle, and great kid. He is likeable and smart. How far he goes is totally up to him because this young man has so much skill.
