Jonathan Martin of the Stanford Cardinal isn't as coveted as Matt Kalil of the USC Trojans, but he's right behind him in the race to be one of the top offensive tackles picked up in the 2012 NFL Draft. So it figures a lot of teams that don't have one of the top two picks (which will almost certainly go to Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III) should examine whether they should decide to pick up Martin.
Indeed, at Stanford Pro Day, multiple teams seemed to take a look at Martin, all of whom need offensive tackles.

Minnesota, Buffalo and Cleveland all need a top offensive lineman, and it's clear Martin is one of the best option available to these lottery teams. Minnesota will likely draft Kalil if they do go with an offensive tackle, but it's always important to consider all alternatives if necessary.
