Agreed on both accounts. I still think someone might make a jump at him in the late 1st round like Shea McClellan was picked last year.

Franklin did excellent vs a great Stanford defense. Hope his fumbling issues don't hold him back, or he gets past them.

I also don't care for Skov that much after watching the last few games. His stat line may be satisfactory, but he seems slow on his feet. Sad, too, as I think he has the smarts and is in the right place for the most part, but his athleticism is holding him back and could be a big hindrance in the NFL. 3rd-5th round grade imo.

Franklin really impressed me. Good vision, great acceleration and surprizing strength.

He had huge holes to run through, but in the open field he's a beast. LOVE to have him

I love Chase Thomas, but I don't think I would take him before the third round. He's not real fast or physical. I really like his smarts though and he seemed to shed well last night.

Franklin might be the best comparison to Jamaal Charles out of this draft class.
