Draftable RB Profiles, Johnathan Franklin, and Shane Vereen

Johnathan Franklin In a draft with no clear cut stars, Johnathan Franklin is pretty interesting. He exploded for a tremendous senior season at UCLA, averaging over 6.0 yards per carry and notching more than 2,000 yards from scrimmage. Evan Silva has him as the No. 2 back in the draft, and it’s not difficult to see why. Unfortunately, Franklin didn’t really build on his momentum at the NFL Combine. Running a 4.49 at 205 pounds, his size/speed ratio is middle of the road. Moreover, his times in the short shuttle and 3-cone didn’t show explosive lateral burst.
