2011 Spartan Nation Football Profile: #82 WR, KR, PR Keshawn â€œKMARTâ€ Martin
Expectation:Â All Big Ten PR, Starting WR Special Teams Captain
Height:Â Â 5â€™11â€
2011 Eligibility:Â SeniorÂ
EXP:Â 3 letters
Status:Â All Big Ten PR, Starting WR
Strengths:Â KMART can do amazing things with a football. Forget Harry Potter, this young man is a true wizard.Â We all know what he can do as a PR/KR so I wonâ€™t go there.Â Letâ€™s look at the Notre Dame game.Â In the fourth quarter with 13:15 left to go in regulation, MSU was at their own 22 with a first and ten.Â He ran a precision flag route and caught the ball for a 20+ yard gain.Â When he runs those precise routes and catches the ball he is unstoppable.
Weakness:Â 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.Â The ball bounced and he tried to field it.Â He fumbled at his own 19.Â The biggest weakness that he shows is also when he makes easy drops as a receiver.Â CONCENTRATION.Â Sometimes he lacks it.Â He has to make smart decisions and concentrate.Â He is the ONLY one that can stop KMART.
Final Analysis:Â KMART will play in the NFL.Â No doubt at all.Â Whether it is as a specialist and a WR is up to him.Â He could be an All Big Ten WR if he would avoid costly easy drops as a receiver.Â He has the talent.Â Donâ€™t let the dreads fool you.Â He is a kind, gentle, and great kid.Â He is likeable and smart.Â How far he goes is totally up to him because this young man has so much skill.
