Ranking the Most Important on Offense: No. 10

Sooners Illustrated has made it into the final 10 of this year's most important offensive players countdown.

No. 10:

Player: Trey Franks

Position: Backup wide receiver

The rundown: Franks was the fifth leading receiver on the team last year with his 29 catches for 293 yards. He had a touchdown and averaged 9.1 yards per reception and 18.8 yards per game, playing in all 14 contests. The 5-foot-10, 184-pound receiver even moved into a starting role for the last four games of the season, precipitated by an eight-catch, 66-yard performance at Texas A&M. He managed seven receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Spring Game.

Expectations for 2011: Franks' role diminishes somewhat after DeJuan Miller's been named as a starter on the preseason depth chart. That moves Franks into the backup role at the slot position. Still, he's a receiver that proved he's got a ton of ability to make some big plays. He'll regularly be in the lineup, and that keeps him just inside the top 10 just because of his production last year and the unlikely chance that Miller could have a reoccurrence of his injury.
