Man of Troy: Bears to put DB Sherrod Martin through private workout

Some teams like Sherrod Martin as a cornerback but he would probably fit the Bears best as a safety.

They'll go in and get a better look when they put the Troy defensive back through a private workout on Friday at the school, the Sun-Times has learned.

Martin is big for a cornerback at 6-1, 198 pounds, and he's only been gaining momentum since a strong showing at the scouting combine followed by a strong pro day performance last month.

He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 and 4.49 seconds and had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump. The Bears were represented by a scout that day and Baltimore and Miami had secondary coaches in attendance.

Martin has fluid hips and is a natural athlete. He's a natural free safety having played that position in school before getting a look at cornerback at the Senior Bowl. The questions surrounding him most are related to durability. He's had surgery on both shoulders and missed the 2006 season with a medical redshirt. The last surgery was 1 1/2 years ago, and the Bears must feel good about his medical report from the combine to be heading in for a workout. Martin is considered a strong character guy and the Troy program is gaining more and more respect every year for the players it is producing.

Keep an eye on Martin.
