A look inside former Michigan football star Mike Martin's NFL draft party

By Kyle Meinke

Former Michigan defensive tackle -- and now, current Tennessee Titan -- Mike Martin produced a video series last year that chronicled his senior season.

Now, he's produced a follow-up that provides an intriguing look into his intimate draft party Friday night at Connor O'Neil's in Ann Arbor.

Martin was selected in the third round that night by the Titans. He goes on to cover the full gamut of emotions -- from jubilant, as he offered a pair of toasts promising to "do it big, like we always do," to sentimental, after shedding a tear as he embraced his mother, Theresa O'Hara, who raised him as a single parent.

Good stuff.
