Keyshawn might become WR2 verrrry quickly if preseason matches what we're hearing about him in camp thus far. Sounds like he is very Andre Johnson'ish in the sense that he (a) listens, (b) does the things that are taught in the meetings, and (c) corrects things immediately. 100% professional.

Physical skills + Head-in-the-game mentality = Texans' best WR prospect.

Cannot wait to see this guy play Saturday night's game!!!!!!
Ditto on KMart. Kubiak is quick to praise a player when it's warranted but I don't remember ever hearing him praise a player so highly, so often as he has Martin. I'm guessing he's just really, really relieved that one of the young guns have stepped up. I remember AJ saying the same thing about him being a real quiet kinda guy a few weeks back.

C'mon Saturday night!

It's the quiet ones you gotta watch.

That's why I'll be watching Keyshawn on Saturday. That and the whole football thing.

Default Re: Keshawn Martin stepping up in wide-open WR group

I'm excited to see him for sure...plus all the rookies.

I'm a bit surprised he is getting as much time outside as Kubes indicated? Anyone got any insight there?

Based on his size/speed it seems to be he would make an ideal slot WR who also returns punts.

In other words, *Kmart might end up being exactly what we were always hoping JJ would be. A spitfire in the slot, with take it home moves and speed in both the punt and wr positions. But JJ was wildly inconsistent. I find it telling that Kubes praised his consistency. Something you don't usually find in a rookie WR which takes time to translate to the pro game. He could be a major steal in the 4th rd. Got to hand it to Smithiak and the scouts again.

(*personally I'm hoping for more Saks fifth ave. then Kmart)

That would be a great nick name for the Front 7.

Martin has a lot of upside so I was surprised to see him drop as far as he did. To be honest I wasn't crazy about the way they used him at times in college. They made him into a one dimensional player getting a lot of swing passes and screens, but I think he can do more than that. Kubiak has been wanting this type of player for a few years now. Hopefully we've struck gold.

He's smaller but he made a lot of contested catches Weds and Friday last week.

Seems like every year there is a mid to late round WR who comes out of nowhere and lights it up .... Why not Martin. Tho I dont see him displacing Walter as many others do.

I don't know if this kid will be good or not, and I know it's a stupid thing to say, but his NAME makes him sound like he'll be good.

"Keshawn Martin", a definite football name.

Martin could well be the injection of speed the offense needs. Jacoby's speed was neutralized by....oh....oh so many things...

Lots of upside to Martin. Let's see how much he can capitalize on his speed and vision at this level.

Dude can catch but he looks smallish for a WR. Out of all the young guys Jean has the size you want as well as the speed.

There has been, and there will be, hundreds of WRs in the NFL that are 5'11", 190lbs that have had great success in the NFL. Tons! It's not Kubiak's usual mold, but you have to wonder why Martin has already beat out Jean if Martin really wasn't a few steps ahead of him (meaning that, so far, at least, Martin has shown more, done more).
