No. 31 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: RB Doug Martin, Boise State –- Compact and powerful at 5-9, 223 pounds, Martin rushed for 43 touchdowns in three college seasons, gaining a combined 2,559 yards rushing the past two years. He said he’s frequently compared to Baltimore’s Ray Rice.

Comment: The Buccanners were too one-dimensional at running back, and if they couldn’t get Richardson, Martin is a good alternative.
