Andrew Franklin School: Southern Illinois
Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 237 40: 4.75 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Junior college transfer who's been used
at both linebacker and defensive end. Coming
off a disappointing senior campaign in which he
Positives: Quick, competitive defender
who plays with leverage. Flashes speed off the
edge, explosion at the point and strong tackling
opponents. Plays with excellent balance and
body control. Fights through the traffic and
locates the ball.
Negatives: Has difficulty against
bigger opponents out of a three-point stance.
Marginally effective against the pass.
A prospect whose playing experience has been
limited the past two seasons, Franklin possesses
solid size/speed numbers for an inside
linebacker position in a 34 defense. Unlikely to
be drafted, yet solid individual workouts could
get him invited to a camp next summer.
