SYRACUSE

By | March 19, 2018

An estimated 20 NFL teams had reps at the SU pro day. The dozen or so that passed on the event missed a combine worthy performance by veteran LB Zaire Franklin, who was not not invited to Indianapolis this year. However, Franklin made up for lost time as he churned out more 30 reps in the best which would have been tops at the position in Indianapolis. Then Franklin posted a 4.58 40-yard time and a 38″ vertical both of which would also have been among the top figures at the combine. For the record, the 6-0, 239-pound Franklin, a three year captain with the Cuse, had over 300 career tackles. Franklin reportedly earned follow-up visits with Arizona, Seattle, San Francisco and Buffalo.
