Scouting the ACC: Syracuse

Draft Analyst Writer

The well has run dry recently, and the Orange have had just a single player selected in the top-100 picks of the draft since 2014. This trend is unlikely to change next April.

The only draftable player from Syracuse on our board was actually a member of the Toledo Rockets the past four years.

Graduate transfer Jordan Martin, a cornerback ignored by scouts, possesses outstanding size and developing ball skills. He shows a knack for knocking away sure completions and defends the run well.

Martin needs to pulls the pieces of his game together and consistently play at a high level, which will push him into the late rounds.
