BIOGRAPHY: "Oregon State transfer who moved into the starting lineup last season, and then finished second on the team in tackles, posting
69/3/3. Started five games at Oregon State as a junior and ?06 and posted 39 tackles."
POSITIVES: "Nice-sized, physical cornerback who works to get involved in the action. Engages opponents at the line of scrimmage with
a jam, slowing their release off the snap, mixes it up throughout the route and aggressively works to defend the throw. Strong
at the point, out muscles receivers to knock away passes or brings ball carriers down on initial contact in the open field.
Displays good focus, concentration and quick to react."
NEGATIVES: "Very quick out of his backpedal, and prefers to side shuffle. Lacks balance and a quick break to the throw."
ANALYSIS: "Francies comes off a fine senior campaign in which he significantly elevated his draft stock. He possesses the physical skills
to play at the next level, yet he is still very much a raw prospect who must develop a complete game. Francies offers good
upside potential and has possibilities as a dime back/special teams player as an NFL rookie."
