Franks has one of the strongest arms in the class and the ball absolutely fires out of his hand. Capable of letting it fly despite pressure or hits. Mobility-wise, Franks has enough athleticism to extend plays with his legs and threaten as a runner. In Mobile, the Senior Bowl staff praised his character and described him as “a blessing to work with.” Franks has confidence in bunches and has shown the willingness to work to improve and ability to reflect back on mistakes.
Accuracy remains inconsistent and has throughout his college career. Improvements have been made to accuracy and mechanics although there is still some work to be done there. Would like to see him improve his pocket presence, as he’s stepped up into his own offensive linemen more than you would like.
Games watched: 2020 Texas A&M, 2020 Auburn, 2020 Florida, 2019 Miami
Franks has shown tremendous improvement since his freshman year and still has plenty of upside. Accuracy needs to improve still and his mental game could speed up but with a bit of coaching, he could find himself starting eventually.
Scheme fit: Run-oriented offense that gets him involved in the run game and allows for deep shots.
Team fits: Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots
