On Monday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the signing of Boise State running back Doug Martin, the No. 31 overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, to a five-year deal.
The organization moved up from the early portion of round two in order to make Martin the second running back selected in this year's draft. Regarded by some as a player with a similar skill set to that of New Orleans Saints 2011 first round pick Mark Ingram, he is a quality fit for new head coach Greg Schiano's offense, which will emphasize the running game.
The 5'9" 223 pound senior totaled 1,299 yards and 16 touchdowns rushing in 2011.
Tampa has only one remaining draft pick unsigned. That being the team's top choice, Alabama safety Mark Barron, taken No. 7 overall.
