 Aaron Francisco Grade: 3.27
 Position: S
 Class: Sr
 School: BYU
 Conference: MWC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 211
 40 Time: 4.81

BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Posted 79 tackles as a senior. Registered a career-high 116 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Fierce, run-defending safety best up the field. Takes good angles to the action, aggressive and always looking to deliver the knockout blow. Quarterbacks the secondary, disciplined throughout the action and displays a good head for the ball. Fast in a straight line, wraps up tackling and throws his body around the action.

NEGATIVES: Marginal ball skills and lacks sideline-to-sideline range. Has difficulty in coverage and usually a half step late arriving on the scene.

ANALYSIS: Sized well and a defender explosive at the point of attack, Francisco is a one-dimensional prospect mostly effective stopping the run. His appetite for contact and willingness to get involved in the action will give him high grades with coaches. Could be effective in a two-deep system or a scheme that limits his lateral movement responsibilities.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
