BIO: Three-year starter who posted career numbers of 44/774/5 as a senior after junior totals of 33/558/4.
POSITIVES: Natural pass-catcher with a polished game. Sharp route-runner, gets separation from defenders and comes back to the ball. Effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders. Consistently finds the open seam in the defense. Gets vertical and contorts to make the reception. Effectively body-catches when necessary.
NEGATIVES: Not strong, slowed by jams and gives marginal effort blocking. Lacks top-end speed and is not a sturdy receiver.
ANALYSIS: Showing improvement as a senior, Francis has potential as a fifth receiver for a timing offense.
