The San Francisco 49ers today announced the signing of third-round pick (No. 70) G/C Marcus Martin. The USC product finished his Trojan career notching 33 career starts while helping the Trojans rush for 2,419 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2013.
Martin who was named a 2013 All-Pac 12 First-team player while also being named the Trojan’s Offensive Lineman of the Year, will need to show the 49ers coaching staff he’s a fast learner if he wants to see the field in 2014. A tough task that’s easier said than done as G Mike Iupati, G Alex Boone, and G Adam Snyder all sit atop the depth chart, Martin will certainly need to fight his way into the rotation.
