In all fairness I think Merrill has higher potential than Martin 2.0. It's the subtle parts to his game that I think make him better. He's positionally better as a defender, is more capable of using his size to bump opponents off of plays (he'll never be a a big hitter, though), and his outlet passing ability is fantastic.

I think Martin 2.0 would be the low end of Merrill's potential.
