North Carolina's premier defensive player Kareem Martin was on hand at last week's ACC Media Days. Martin is an All-ACC Preseason First Team player (media) and has good size with some speed and hustle. While he has a great nose for the backfield as shown by his 15.5 tackles for loss tallied in 2012, Martin sometimes lacks the ability to power through blockers. Expect the edge rushing defensive end to be an impact player for the Tar Heels in 2013.
