This ends a long career in the SEC for Franks, who also spent time with the Florida Gators.

Franks led Arkansas in a better-than-expected 2020 campaign that ended with a 3-7 record. The Razorbacks were slated to face TCU in a bowl game this week, but it was canceled due to COVID-19.

Franks completed 68.5 percent of his passes this season. He also threw for 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions while averaging 8.9 yards per attempt.

This is a tough quarterback class to break into, but Franks will have a chance to get drafted. According to, he is the No. 14 QB prospect in this class. However, there’s still a lot of time and opportunity for Franks to improve that stock in the pre-draft process.
