Taylor Martinez played quarterback at Nebraska — starting 43 games at the position during four seasons with the Cornhuskers — but might be a man without a position as an NFL draft hopeful.

The Rams and Lions have the top two picks in the 2010 NFL Draft, and most draft analysts expect one of those two teams to choose Suh.
