    I like him. I think he would be a great complement to Murray.

    The only thing I questioned about Franklin is whether he has the burst to get his yards in the NFL. He's got all the other skills.

    No surprised. He was a very underrated college player imo. I remember watching the UCLA vs USC game and thinking to myself that this kid was really good. He tore up their D and he also carved up Nebraskas D for 217 yards. He's got good size and is good at everything. No real weaknesses. After watching more tape, I especially love his balance and vision in the open field. And his ability to catch out of the backfield. I'd love to have him, but I bet he goes a lot higher now after an impressive Senior Bowl and probably combine.

    Here's a few highlights:

    He looks good, we might want to investigate his Oline he was so open on most of those runs.

    UCLA's offensive line had 3 true freshman starting. I can honestly say without any homerism that UCLA's offensive line was the worst in the Pac-12.

    I would love him in the 5th but doubt he is there

    He is a back that i've always thought would be great here in Dallas. I hope we find a way to draft him. I just have a hard time not selecting someone over him in rounds 1-4.
