BIOGRAPHY: Former reserve cornerback who started in nickel packages as a senior. Totaled 31 tackles last season, breaking up three passes after finishing with 21 tackles as a junior. Top special-teams player at LSU.
POSITIVES: Athletic prospect who has been marginally productive on defense. Fluid turning to run with opponents off the line, quickly breaks to the action and remains disciplined with assignments. Works hard to make positive plays and stands out on coverage units.
NEGATIVES: Struggles with his back to the ball, does not play to his 40 time and does more trailing receivers than actual covering.
ANALYSIS: A size/speed prospect, Francis never elevated his game at LSU, even when afforded the opportunity. Must earn his wage at the next level on special teams.
