NFL analyst says Feleipe Franks has shown improvement at Senior Bowl
Feleipe Franks’ NFL Draft stock appears to be trending upward.
During the NFL Network’s coverage of the Senior Bowl, analyst Bucky Brooks spoke of improvement displayed by the former Arkansas and Florida quarterback.
“I think he made a lot of improvement,” Brooks said, per Alex Seats of 247Sports. “You saw a better decision-maker, a guy that was pretty accurate in the pocket when it came to delivering those throws. So you feel a lot better about his prospects of being a guy that you can develop at the next level. I obviously want to see him continue to progress, he’s done a lot of that this week. But when you’re looking at a young quarterback to kind of throw some support behind, Feleipe Franks is someone you can do that with because you get him on the practice field and see if he can retain all the information and then let that natural talent that he’s displayed throughout his career, let it shine.”
After a difficult redshirt freshman season in 2017, Franks had a strong redshirt sophomore season at Florida in 2018, Year 1 of Dan Mullen’s tenure. His redshirt junior season ended in September 2019 when he suffered an injury in the Florida-Kentucky game. Franks opted to continue his career at Arkansas as a graduate transfer for his redshirt senior season in 2020. With the Razorbacks, Franks posted a completion percentage of 68.5, the highest of his three full seasons.
