Abillity wise...a little tori Holt. he's bigger than tori was though. Not nearly as polished a route runner. doesn't have as good of hands either.

Chad Jackson

Maybe with the same athleticism but Franklin wasn't overdrafted because of inflated numbers in college. I might be a Chiefs homer but I like Franklin's chances to stick in the NFL more than Jackson's. He certainly has less competition in front of him. Dwayne Bowe is clearly the #1 and is a future stud but every other spot is up in the air.

Similar size, Jackson has a little more speed, but they are similar players.

But the situation isn't what was asked. It was who was he like. He's pretty much a clone of Chad Jackson. Put Franklin in Jackson's situation, or Jackson in Franklin's situation, and they're practically interchangable. And Jackson wasn't overdrafted because of inflated college stats. He was overdrafted because of a rediculously weak year at WR.

So you are already predicting Franklin will do absolutely nothing in the NFL like Chad Jackson?

If he were sitting behind Moss, Stallworth, and Welker? Yeah, he ain't sniffing the ball there.

he asked about potential. I think he's got holt potential, I was just stating how I think he is different. No player is gonna compare perfectly to another player, I just think he can be that sort of player.

But while I'm at it. He's a little like Al Toon, except shorter.....and faster.....but not as good a route runner....

I think he is a bit of a sleeper. Nice value.

He also compares to Manute Bol. Except Manute plays basketball....and is ALOT taller.....and skinner....and probably slower especially now after all these years.

Sorry I'll shut up. Its been a stressful week at work. Don't ban me please. I really enjoy this forum :) Just having fun.
