I was under the impression he would stay one more year. His stock is still pretty high I suppose, but another year of injuries may decrease his status.
I guess it is something a lot of Juniors consider...
Will probably get pulled soon, but here:
Michigan junior NT Mike Martin will ask for his NFL Draft prospects after the season. "I'll do that and take it from there."
..But not as good as last year. Guys like Bama's Marcell Dareus, Auburn's Nick Fairley, USC's Jurrell Casey, LSU's Drake Nevis, Oregon State's Stephen Paea, Iowa's Adrian Clayborn, OSU's Cameron Heyward, and Cal's Cameron Jordan are all 3-4 DE/DT/NT guys that could potentially go first round.
Lots of dick jokes and kitten pics.
There's good money to be made. I guess we'll have to work on a 'decimated front' piece to hold over the next couple years.
I don't blame him, it never hurts to see if you can get millions of dollars. Just avoid Donovan Warrens advisor!
In the end I agree with Beavis, it's a tough year for DT. As much as I like the kid I don't see him being a first day pick pick...yet. One more year like this past and a better health I can see him going late in the first round.

If Martin goes pro, then "We gon' die" next year on D. Fortunately that's still an "if".
Anyone as talented as Mike Martin deserves to know his options. I am sure that playing in the NFL would be one of his dreams and the pinnacle of his football development. Obviously, it would be great to have him back next year but I can't begrudge him a great opportunity. Of course, his development as one more Wolverine in the league can also only be seen as a recruiting positive that Bruce Tall can mention.
Sky not falling, exactly.
Don't worry...he will NOT be going pro.
First, this is strictly an ADVISORY request. I think Martin has to pay for it, but it doesn't commit him either way. Other than the money he has to fork down now, it doesn't cost him anything. He will be playing on Sundays someday, but the amount of dough he would lose with a Donovan Warren-type decision would be very costly.
Second, Martin seems more of a leader than Warren ever was. I don't think he is as much "ME" as he is "TEAM" --- he is the leader on the D. Players look up to him. That has to count for something, especially if we turn into an average D next year. Who will get a lot of credit for the "turnaround" but the guy in the middle?
That thing is bad ass! I don't know what it is but it's bad ass.
i can haz nfl lockout?
(1) loaded draft at DT and (2) not Martin's best season... helll be back.
if we get him back we really need to start considering our D line for next year pretty stacked. The depth will actually be there with martin, van bergen, washington, ash, and talbott all being solid options
PLease let us have one more year of a healthy MM hulking out!!
Can't blame him for atleast exploring the option. I think he'll be back tho.
