Drew's Dougherty Dozen: 12Q w/C Nick Martin

Center Nick Martin met with Drew Dougherty after Sunday's training camp practice at The Greenbrier. The two discussed a variety of things, and you can listen to the full interview**HERE**.

DD: What's your one, "must-pack" item for training camp?

Martin:  Headphones.

DD: Which of your teammates talks the most trash?

Martin:  Oooh. DB's. Kevin Johnson. They're always yappin'.

DD: What's your best football trait?

Martin: Work ethic.

DD:  What's your most improved football trait this offseason?

Martin: Hands. Just getting hands on people, locking them up, doing your job.

DD: What do you eat for breakfast at camp?

Martin:  Oatmeal with blueberry, peanut butter, walnuts, cranberries and then just a bunch of eggs.

DD: Who's the best dresser on the team?

Martin: Probably (Quarterback) Deshaun (Watson) or (Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins) 'Hop, no doubt.

DD: Who has the best hair on the Texans?

Martin:  Ooh that's a tough one. I'd say (Wide receiver) Will Fuller. I saw him when he had nothing, and now he's got those long dreads. So I've seen his whole progression and it's not bad.

DD: Who's your favorite retired NFL player?

Martin:  I grew up watching Jeff Saturday. I can relate to that. He's a center.

DD: Who's your most underrated teammate?

Martin:  Big 'Trel (offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson), he can move people, now. He's going to be a good player.

DD: Do you send postcards from camp, and if you do, who gets them?

Martin: I don't send them, but no doubt my wife and my mom. Both are number one, right there.
