NFL Draft 2012: Jonathan Martin To The Buffalo Bills?

Can Stanford's Jonathan Martin be picked in the top ten of this year's NFL draft?

Along with Martin, this year's draft class has several quality offensive tackles including USC's Matt Kalil, Ohio State's Mike Adams and Iowa's Riley Reiff.

Martin's technique and athleticism are his main assets, while his overall strength has been pegged as a weakness by NFL draft experts. Another plus for Martin has going for him is his experience in playing in Stanford's pro-style offense.

While Stanford's Andrew Luck is appearing in most of the headlines entering 2012's NFL draft, but Martin looks like he'll be an impact player in the NFL with the skill set he offers.

The Buffalo Bills may consider taking Martin at No. 10 overall:

After protecting Stanford QB Andrew Luck throughout his college career, LT Jonathan Martin is a possibility for the Bills at 10th overall. "Coming from Stanford, he's going to be a highly intelligent guy," assistant GM/director of player personnel Doug Whaley said of Martin. "He's a competitive guy. He's a guy that has a chance to play both left and right tackle, so the versatility makes him very intriguing." (Via: CBS Sports)

Another possible destination for Martin? The Arizona Cardinals at No. 13 is a possibility if the Bills pass him up. The Cardinals need some protection for quarterback Kevin Kolb — the Cardinals allowed 54 sacks in 2011.
