Have the Packers found another superstar?

He might be exactly what's needed!

Blake Martinez had a pretty good season at inside linebacker for the Green Bay Packers as a rookie in 2016. Pro Football Focus grades him at -2.3 overall, including the playoffs, which, for a 4th round pick is really not bad at all.

Where Martinez excelled was in the run game, coming in with a +4.6 in run defense alone and it looks like he's continuing that trend going into 2017.

He certainly has to improve in pass coverage, but it looks like the Packers might have found themselves a late round sleeper to pair with Jake Ryan in the middle of their defense. Blake had 69 tackles, a sack and an interception last year.

Martinez played college football at Stanford.
