Franklin leads RB group
UCLA's Johnathan Franklin
(5-10, 201) was the best of the backs, mostly because he was good in pass protection. Franklin was stout and tough in one-on-ones, and put a good chip block on a defensive lineman during the team period. That period is designed to benefit the defensive players and Franklin was very good.
As a runner, he was patient, followed his blocks and showed good burst. Franklin's quickness also stood out, especially in individual drills.
Oregon RB Kenjon Barner
(5-9⅛, 188) had a good Tuesday as well. He has a hard time in pass protection because of his lack of size, but Barner works hard. He needs work on his technique in pass pro.
Finally, Fresno State RB Robbie Rouse
(5-5⅞, 186) had a hard time finding seams.
