Martin Emerson Scouting Report

"Versatile, long levered with smooth athleticism but lacks twitch mobility, sand as a tackler and isn't a playmaker."

 

Strengths:

Long levered corner with smooth athleticism and open field tackling ability. technique sound and versatile to play off or up in man.


Aggressive and seeks out contact at the los and in run support. Flashes pop on contact. shows awareness and rarely false steps.

 

Weaknesses:

Lacks a second gear and struggles to recover. Lacks ideal twitch and can be slow out of his transitions. Not a playmaker.


Lacks sand and ideal technique as a tackler and often loses collisions.

 

Overall:

Emerson has ideal length and sound technique. He's as adept in man as he is playing off and flashes some pop as a tackler and as a tactile guy at the los.


The rub is that he struggles to hang with speed and hasn't been a playmaker. While he's loose hipped for his length, he's a step slow in his transitions and cod. He's a generally sound open field tackler and has the versatility to play safety with added strength.
