Martez Thrower Scouting Report
Martez Thrower is a strong tackler who explodes through the gaps as they open. Potential to be a strong pass rushing threat. Does well getting off blocks as shown in the video below at the 01:02 mark where he rips off a block in time to make the tackle and force a fumble inside the 2-yard line. A Sports Illustrated All American candidate who takes good angles to ball carriers. Thrower gets a great jump off the ball with speed sideline to sideline. Potential to play linebacker or defensive end though his current size makes linebacker look to be where he can contribute soonest on power five schools. (DT Yates)
