Austin Franklin, WR, New Mexico State


UDFA. Signed by the Rams as a UDFA but was released in August. Was a junior. Has enough athleticism and receiving skills to stick on a roster somewhere, but I’m not sure where.

Positives: Above-average hand size. Above-average quickness. Adequate hands, and can extend somewhat. Gets good yards after the catch using his change of direction and acceleration abilities. Above-average vision in the open field. Above-average vertical leap.

Negatives: Slightly below-average height and bulk for the position. Suspect concentration on easy passes. Academically ineligible for four games in 2012. Below-average track speed for his size and position. Week upper body. Below-average lateral quickness and ability to change directions in Combine testing.

Projection: Probably not going to be fantasy relevant.
