Troy Franklin’s connection with Quarterback Bo Nix is unteachable. The timing between the two is impeccable and Franklin has the instincts to open on scramble drill plays. He has impressive long speed, stretching the field and producing explosive plays. Franklin’s best tools come from his instincts. He aligns himself with defenders and will manipulate them on choice routes. Franklin knows how to expose corners taking poor angles or ones who are unbalanced. His ball skills are outstanding, and is combined with fluid body control and soft hands to win at the catch point. He combines speed, burst and explosiveness to put defenders on their backs. Displays pro ready route nuances like hesitation and cutbacks. CFB elite receiver stats as the number one option. Uses his athleticism to create YAC. Everything about his game is controlled.


Most of Franklin’s issues stem from his slender frame. His thin build is noticeable on screen, and is further backed up by statistics. Of NFL receivers drafted since 2000, Franklin is 81% height, but only 6% for weight. It’s rare to see a high level prospect built like him. His build translates to play strength. Corners were able to jam him at the line and delay his routes altogether. Physical NFL corners will only be tougher for Franklin to play against. He has contested catch talent, but he can get bodied by bigger corners at the catch point. Play strength can completely neutralize a receiver’s skill set, as it throws off the comfortability and timing on every snap.

Franklin has a skillset that should nicely translate to the NFL. He can separate at practically every level, creating explosive plays before and after the catch. The big obstacle holding Franklin from being a day one impact receiver is his frame. He’s rumored to have already put on weight, so it’s unclear whether Franklin is able to add significant more mass to his build. If he’s able to overcome his play strength deficit, Franklin can be an outstanding number two receiver, and a quarterback’s best friend. If not, he still offers value as a big play threat.
