Grading System
Todd Franz | CB | Tulsa | WAC
Selected by Detroit Lions in round 5, pick 12 (#145 overall)
Ht Wt 40 BP SS LS VJ BJ Grade
6'½" 195 4.56 14 - - - - 5.37
A tall slender corner with good quickness and athletic ability. Smooth in his backpedal. Stays low. Good in his plant and drive. Works well in press coverage. Aware in a zone. Locates the ball quickly and takes good angles. Anticipates receivers cuts well. Lacks ideal speed, but turns his hips well and generally protects well deep. Allows catches in front of him when giving a cushion. Good blitzer. Adequate tackler overall -- is more of a grabber than drive-through striker. Needs to improve his strength. Intelligent. Could project as a free safety.
