NFL Prospect Preview: UCLA RB Jonathan Franklin

Jonathan Franklin had a huge season in 2012 helping him move up draft boards.  Franklin was #7 on the depth chart as a Freshman, but is now just a few days away from latching onto an NFL team.  His all-around ability could be something that sets him a part from the rest of the field.

Here is my conversation with Ryan Kartje of the Orange County Register on UCLA RB Jonathan Franklin

I believe Franklin would be a good fit in Green Bay.  His pass catching ability (33 in 2012) could make him a dangerous weapon in the Packers offense.  Not to mention he compiled over 1700-yards on the ground.  Franklin could be a good value if available in the 3rd round.
