Gabe Franklin School: Boise State
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 185 40: 4.55 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four year starter that's played 51 games
with the first team. All-Conference selection
as a senior after posting 61/4/17. Junior totals
Positives: Productive collegiate
cornerback who has flown under the radar
screen in scouting circles. Instinctive, reads
the action and quickly locates the ball in the
air. Displays the ability to run downfield with
opponents, has a burst of closing speed and
makes a lot of plays on the ball. Reads receivers
eyes and quickly gets his head back around to
defend the throw. Displays good concentration
and stays with assignments. Comes up the
field to help out in run support and will mix it
Negatives: Stiff moving in reverse and very quick
coming out of his back pedal. Not a sudden
or explosive defender.
Analysis: A productive
collegiate defender, Franklin offers good skills
for the next level. May never develop into a
starting cornerback yet should be productive in
nickel and dime packages as well as help out
on special teams.
