    He patterns himself after Antonio Gates. So we got that going for us, which is nice.

    Yeah, I patterned my game after Mike Singletary but I still didn't get any offers.


    By the way, how does on "come down" with an MCL injury? They aren't contagious are they?

    (No disrespect to Howard. Hope you have a speedy recovery.)

    You could "Come Down" with a MCL injury if you landed awkwardly when jumping.

    Franklin has really impressed me lately, and I think he has a great shot to make a NFL team maybe not thru the draft but thru a camp.

    I don't remember where I read it, but I did read that one scout has Franklin as a top 3 TE in college football. He is the prototypical TE for the NFL these days. I would be shocked if he didn't get drafted on day 1.

    Collin is really a good TE. He certainly looks like he could compete at the next level. Too bad that we underutilized him.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.

    Don't forget about Pierce Richardson! He is a 3-star TE that could challenge for serious playing time next year!

    I figured you were assuming that the upper classmen would get more PT than Pierce giving him time to mature and learn the system better.

    That said, I am really looking forward to seeing what Pierce can do be it next year or further in the future.

    By the way, anyone heard how Pierce has been doing in practice? I am always curious about the development of RS Freshman. C-Will maybe you can do a piece on that?

    Watch this, it will be fun:

    Franklin is better than Dallas Clark right now.

    I would also really enjoy a report on the development of the players on the practice team. Think this is something you can pull of Chris?

    Trolls are too annoying. Yes, Franklin is better right now than an injured Dallas Clark with one hand.

    You just can't resist feedint the trolls can you?

    He has the tools, but not the numbers at this point.

    If we had a more consistent passing game, I could see it. But when we only complete about 16 passes a game, its hard to see what he can do.

    It also hurts that he had such bad numbers last year. (Was he hurt, I can't remember?)

    Now, if he does get drafted, starts, and has a QB like Peyton Manning, then I can see him putting up big numbers.
    I would love to see him catching TDs for Ben Roethlisberger next year.

    Franklin should be in the NFL. He can run well and has GREAT hands. He has made catches this year that some of our WR's wouldnt have made.
