One of the questions of the season this year across the SEC is if Feleipe Franks can turn a corner in his second season under Dan Mullen at Florida. WR Van Jefferson is already in the camp of those who have said this year is different for Franks.

Franks last season threw for 2,457 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions on the season, and completed passes at a 58.4 percent clip. During a visit on “The Paul Finebaum Show,” Jefferson said he has freedom in the Mullen offense to adjust routes, and it helps the skill players. That goes for Franks, too.

“I think Feleipe is a great quarterback” Jefferson said, according to 247 Sports. “I think Feleipe is going to be one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He’s locked in and dialed in this whole week and through fall camp, man. He’s locked in. He has a different persona about himself, man. He’s ready. He’s locked in. He knows what he has to do. This is his second year in the offense. I think he’s going to surprise a lot of people with what he can do.”

The Gators get their first chance to show that offseason work on Saturday in the season opener against Miami in Orlando.
