    I have to admitt, I was shocked and stunned when we spent a 5th round pick on Ingle Martin. But as time goes by and I read more and more about this guy, and after hearing the interview with him, he sounds like a genuine down to earth guy. He might even be worth a 5th round pick.

    Does anyone know if he's a good punter? If he would be able to make it as our #1 punter and #3 QB, we would be a threat to fake a pass on a punt play quite often...

    He said hes blessed at punting, and will work on it more now. He said he punts FOR FUN! Who the hell punts for fun? the kid is hilarious, seems nice. His QB skills seem a bit underrated. He supposedly broke some records in florida I believe he said.

    -Qb depth(MM isnt sold on A-Rod, favre wont be here forever,good 3rd string)
    -backup punter (dont act like its not important...Sander?)
    -Holder (Longwell blamed holding...now it shouldnt be an excuse)

    we all went "Wha? " when we seen his name. Looks like a solid pick though. lets hope it works out. I dont want ANY of these picks to be wastes\busts(i wont get my wish though) but lets hope it works out.

    Are we drafting a kicker with our last pick?

    I thought he was worth a 3rd round pick to be honest. He transfered from Florida because of Chris Leak. He's built better than Leak and has a very nice arm. I think he'll push Rodgers in the future.

    Yeah, now the excuse will be kicking. :p

    Anyway, from what I've read so far Martin looks like a solid pick and could be a pretty good QB in a few years.

    I have no problem with taking a "gamble" with a 5th rounder...and I don't even know if he's a gamble...he sounds like a fairly stable pick with a lot of upside...and a little competition never hurt anyone (AR).

    I like the pick of Ingle Martin.I heard he was blowing scouts away at the combine.Plus hopefully he'll push rodgers when competing in camp.

    The pick is fine.

    I'd like to know why I get ripped whenever I say I'm not sold on Rodgers yet you say MM feels the same way.

    I don't think anybody really rips anybody for saying they aren't sold on Rodgers yet. Nobody can really be sold on him as he hasn't really played. People have said to give him a chance before you diss him though, which I do agree with.

    Wrong. That's all I've ever said about the guy. I'd also like to know why "nobody can really be sold on him as he hasn't played". He's a #1 pick. I know that I'm sold on A.J. Hawk and he hasn't really played!

    I said yesterday I wanted us to take Ingle Martin with a late pick. I watched him at the combine where he seemed to be paired with Whitehurst and Cutler and he really impressed me. Was better than Whitehurst I thought and as good as Cutler. Plus we get at least a backup punter. This is a great pick. I was more excited about this pick than any other because I thought he was great value.
