How High Can CB Franks Climb?

A Roundly Praised Pick

Although many fans and media types alike vehemently disagreed and criticized some picks that Thomas Dimitroff chose on draft weekend, it was almost a consensus lock of being an excellent draft choice of Oklahoma Cornerback Dominique Franks in the 5th Round. Almost everyone knew that the Falcons would go cornerback at some point during the draft to continue and build a deep, tough, and athletic secondary, but didn’t know exactly when that TD would pull the trigger. The signing of veteran CB Dunta Robinson in free agency made it a much lower priority than first round, as originally thought. It was also widely believed that the Falcons would target a cornerback who could assist them in the return game as well since Eric Weems was decent, although not great, and Harry Douglas return days are probably over. After being projected to go in the second or third round, looks like Dimitroff may have hit a homerun grabbing Franks in the fifth round.

A Playmaking Cornerback

Franks entered the NFL Draft as a junior after having a very successful career at Oklahoma. After redshirting and seeing limited time in his first full year, Franks racked up 96 tackles, 15 pass breakups, and 6 interceptions in two years. The Oklahoma cornerback was named 2nd Team All-Big 12 his sophomore year and 1st Team All-Big 12 his junior year. Declaring for the draft, Franks was characterized as a very athletic cornerback with good size (5’11, 195) and superb skills when he gets his hands on the ball. He also had traits of being a hard-worker, a very good tackler, confident, and “a ballhawk who has skills to be a starter on the next level” according to DraftCountdown. Although he has immense upside, Franks does have some areas of his game that need work. Franks has been characterized as being too aggressive, which can be a weakness as a cornerback. He also has been labeled as not physical or tough enough, as well as not having the best speed to recover when he gets beat.

How High Can He Rise?

The sky seems the limit for Franks as an Atlanta Falcon. His first duties will be to work hard and compete at a high enough level to insure that he makes the active roster. That’s something that’s certainly not guaranteed to cornerbacks drafted by Thomas Dimitroff, just ask former 5th round draftee William Middleton and former 6th round draftee Wilrey Fontenot, both cornerbacks who are neither on the team or the practice squad. The battle will be fierce with the cornerback position suddenly being one of the deeper positions on the team. Immediate starter Dunta Robinson was signed via free agency, Chris Owens and Brent Grimes proved they both can be starters when they did it down the stretch last year, Brian Williams is looking good in rehab and looks to be ready to go, and Chevis Jackson supposedly had a very good mini-camp knowing what’s at stake. Even though the Falcons carried 6 cornerbacks on their active roster last year, there’s no guarantee they will again with all the talent across the board.

Assuming Franks makes the roster, which is highly likely (we carried Houston and Hill last year for goodness sake), the question is what role can he play? Taking into account no injuries occur (fingers crossed), it’s a pretty safe bet that Robinson, Owens, and Grimes are the top cornerbacks on the roster and likely will take the top two spots and the third taking the nickel slot. The question then remains what roles will Brian Williams and/or Chevis Jackson play. After starting the year and playing very well, Williams was lost for the year against the Bears with a pretty severe knee injury. Many thought Williams may not be re-signed, but Dimitroff and Co. were pleased with his rehab and loved his leadership and play. Jackson had a pretty great rookie year easing into the nickel back role, only to have his role reduced and his play go down in his second year. Even though Jackson was a Dimitroff draft pick, he looks to possibly be on the bubble with all the new talent in the secondary. Add to that the fact that he couldn’t win starting or major spot in last year’s overall weak cornerback corps and you can see why he’s driven and ready to have a big camp. Let the games begin.

Inside Track for Special Teams Maven?

Although Franks may not be one of the best returners in the game and certainly isn’t a homerun threat (0 punt or kick return TDs), he did log the 6th best season for a punt returner in Oklahoma history in very limited time. Franks is quick, has great hands, and excellent vision when returning the ball both on punts and kickoffs. Eric Weems had his flashes and may only get better, but Franks could mount a serious challenge to make a play for special teams maven for the Falcons. But upon second look, Weems actually had a much better year than some may realize. Weems was ranked 8th in the NFL in kick return yards (1214), 12th in punt return yards (270), and 5th overall in terms of comprehensive rankings according to ProFootballFocus.com. Franks could push for major time on special teams, but Weems won’t give up without a fight.

I don’t think Franks will play a lot this season but I still think he was a good pick. I think Williams, Owens and Grimes will be well ahead of him. As for nickel, not yet. Can he replace Weems? Yep, because I don’t think Weems will make the team.

Dominique Franks will make the active roster. At some point, he will start because of his size. I have an
intangible feeling that Brent Grimes will play himself into a lesser role. Christopher Owens was only a
rookie last season, so consequently, he should only improve. I just cannot wrap my arms around the
idea that you can have Brent Grimes as your starting corner on your playoff football team. He does not
pass the eye test. His quantitative numbers should be better as well, ie..7 ints in 3 years?

I think Franks has the talent to play the NB position but we dont need him to this year (unless a injury happens) … Dominque Franks has starting CB potential… I think he will learn from Dunta Robinson and get coached up this year (none or no major playing time)…

I know Weems fan’s will hate this but i think Franks will take the PR (Norwood will take back the KR job) …. Weems is ok/good at both but great at neither…

But yea… I think Franks will be an future starting CB for this team but this year i think he will only see time as a returner…

Steven A. I’m not a big fan of Grimes but the little man plays his azz off. I as you don’t see him as our starting cornerback but he will bring a little bit more to the table than the rookie. I think Grimes will play a lesser role this season but will still be a big part of the team.

I loved the Franks pick and thought it was a steal in the fifth round. I know I’m in the minority, but as D3 pointed out, Weems was a good return man. He didn’t break one for a touchdown, but he consistently put the offense in good field position. I wouldn’t mind seeing Franks take over punt return duties and leave Weems returning kicks. I don’t want to see Norwood on special teams. I think he is much more valuable out of the backfield and running routes in the slot. I think B. Williams will be the starter opposite Dunta (if his rehab goes smoothly) and think Franks will see time in the rotation and be a full-time starter in 2012.

No way does Franks see anything more than limited rotation in the secondary. Talented? Yes. Size? Yes. We will still be deep at the position. Franks will make the 53 and play gunner and or returner for us. Watch this beastly kid kill it on STs. In 3 years he should be an awesome DB.

I really like this pick of Dominique Franks in the 5th, he’s going to be a real steal. He has amazing ball recognition, great hands for a cornerback, and pretty good speed. I dont really care about him returning kicks, because we have one of the most explosive open field kick returners in Norwood, who is a BEAST as a kickoff returner. Let Franks have the Punt return duties, since he has good field vision, and we should be set on special teams. I really like are corner back depth this year, I mean REALLY like it…I think Dunta Robinson and Chris Owens should start at LCB and RCB, with Brent Grimes at the nickel (he played excellent to finish the year, and had 6 picks last year, and was robbed by the ref of his 7th). That is a great core. I think Brian Williams should be used in matchups with big TEs and WRs, since he is our slowest CB, but a gritty veteran who will make plays and is hardly ever out of position. Then keep Chevis Jackson and Dominique Franks as our 5th and 6th corners, and let these very talented youngsters provide depth, and learn from the veterans and they will only get better. Way to go TD in suring up the secondary this offseason, with the signing of Robinson and the drafting of Franks…

Super work as always D3. IMO, Franks was the best pick in our draft considering we got him in the fifth round. The only reason he dropped that far was his forty time. I do believe he’s one of those players who play faster than their forty time would lead you to believe. They should time players in full uniform anyway…never understood why they don’t.

DT, that’s the Falcons biggest concern. It is not looking good on the recovery front for Jerry, and with Babs gone for up to half the season, we are periously thin on the defensive line. We are counting on journeyman type players to play key roles on our first line of defense.

I think it’s highly likely that Dominique Franks is on special teams quickly. I’m not sure how quickly he’ll be in the defensive rotation, but there’s no doubt in my mind that this was one of the steals of the draft.

Special teams for certain. Playing defense a stretch until he improves his coverage skills. Gets lost back there in some coverages.

tbhawksfan

DT isn’t looking that bad. Jerry might be a while to get back to top shape, but by the middle of the season he should be in good shape. Lewis is said to be getting back to full strength and speed. Babs suspension is still undecided, but he’ll play more than half the games at worst. Then we have JA98, Peters, Walker and Johson. We do have to count on depth because of injuries and suspensions, but the depth is there while the first stringers are out.

Franks was a great pick up and there’s no reason the secondary shouldn’t be vastly improved. We will lilkely cut guys that will be picked up by other teams.

The pass rush is still the concern on D.

D3,

As always great job! I think Weems should be very afraid. Franks is more than capable of taking over his return duties and with Meier, Wolfe, Harvery here he has a great great chance of losing his receiver spot. Not to mention, as it was pointed out by Unca’ Bob, he tried to cover up his DUI last season. That may be a deciding factor when it comes down to cutting him or not.

Steven A.

“I just cannot wrap my arms around the idea that you can have Brent Grimes as your starting corner on your playoff football team. He does not pass the eye test. ”

Very trust. However, Chris Houston passed the eye test with flying colors but they guy can barely cover his nose when he sneezes. Just sayin’

I watched Dominique Franks up close at minicamp and liked what I saw. I am by no means an expert but the guy looked as if he has tons of potential. I do believe that the correct definition of potential however is that “you haven’t accomplished anything yet.” In the blink of an eye the corner position has went from disappointing to what I believe is a strength on our team.
I also agree with ATLJBO in that Franks will get the punt return gig. At minicamp (granted it was just minicamp) by my untrained eye he did the better job catching the ball. Another reason I see Franks taking over for Weems is the young talent at the WR position. I think Weems is going to be hard press to make the team. Also, someone correct me if I am wrong but wasn’t there a little Weems and weed incident last year?

A little off subject but I am excited to see what our WR’s have to offer this year. Last year we didn’t get much production out of the slot position. This year there are several people currently on the roster which I can envision doing a good job filling that role. Between HD, Meir, Wolfe (if he makes the team), or possibly Harvery I really feel like that is going to be a strength as well.

I think all of those WR’s you mentioned will make the team which is the reason that Weem should be sweating right now. Well the only way I see Weems making the team not is if he is only used for KR’s or only PR’s. I know they were only in shorts and a helmet last week but I like what I saw out of those WR’s you mentioned. They aren’t flashy but they run great routes, get good separation, and catch everything that’s thrown their way. It’s going to be interesting to say the least.

Morning Everyone–
I feel quite certain that Franks will make the roster sending one of our current starters to the pine before the season is over, but disagree with those who think it’ll be Grimes. It’s been mentioned that he only had 7 picks in 3 years but note that 5 of those came in one year–last year–when he was finally moved into the correct position. If Grimes doesn’t pass the “eyeball test” see an optometrist right away and for G-d’s sake stay off the roads! Judge him by his size do you?…and well you should not….*
D3
If memory serves, Fontenot and Middleton are the only 2 TD/MS draftees that aren’t still on the team and Middleton was raided from the practice squad–not a bad record in this vicinity….**

No way will Grimes or Owens gets the nod over Williams. With Robinson and Williams at CB that could end up being the best tandem in the league. We will get torched just like last year if either Grimes (can jump can’t cover) and Owens (can’t turn my head) does happen to get the nod over Williams. I don’t see it happening though. Williams and Robinson will be the starters.

No Grimes hatin’ here, we are stats driven in the cage. As a matter of fact I can’t recall even cussing the TV about his play last year or even hearing his name in a bad way. (Side hate note…I heard Houston’s name ALL THE FRIGGIN TIME last year) But that is past.

Agreed waynester about Williams, unless his rehab gets set back on a tweak. He was very solid in the red zone when he played last year. You could tell when the ball was in the air, Williams really had good position.

D3, nice article as always. Nice addition of the links, at the end too, you savvy man. And thanks for the group hug, but don’t get too comfortable on this “Enterprise”, Number One, you will have your own command one day.

I’m thinking Franks makes the roster based on potential as CB and as a ST returner (allowing Weems to move on to make room for WR talent).

Franks potential to work himself into significant snaps in 2 years is much higher than Weems, I suspect. That will be the difference, that allows a second new receiver (UFA) to make the squad, more upside with proper coaching and mentoring. Williams may open the season on IR if the other guys shine in camp, allow him to get up to 100% and free up a roster spot, while keeping him around in case injuries necessitate bringing him in before he is fully up to speed.

Not sure now many snaps he gets this year (unless Williams injury slows him down, in which case he will need to step up faster). He will get coached up this year, and Williams may well be gone after a year.

ATLJBO — Very true. Franks can learn from one of the best in Robinson. Also, even though I’m mixed on his ST abilities; I was extremely disappointed with Weems as a WR. Maybe it was Mularkey’s play-calling, but maybe it wasn’t.

Deborah Hall — I’ll admit that I was skeptical of Grimes last year, but the guy can play ball and I admitted many times how wrong I was. I love Grimes and he absolutely can be the starter. You may find some few and far between who don’t like Grimes, but the majority of us love his attitude and play.

CBrass,
I did notice they had Jackson working the outside. I thought that strange but he actually did pretty well. Most think Jackson is on the bubble and he very well may be but I think the alternative to that is B Williams being on the bubble. I know they resigned him but that could have been an insurance move and if everyone performs up to par he may be cut. Unlikely but possible.
I think last year Weems got to play mainly because they were out of options. I was impressed with the separation that Harvery was able to get when running routes and he looked to run strong. I do understand that it was minicamp and they were running without pads however so were the DB’s. I loved seeing the separation he got because I have not witnessed that much out of our WR’s. I am curious to see what happens to Fin. His best playing days are well behind him but his leadership is valuable.

STEVENA-If you can’t get you arms around having CB BGrimes as a starter, it has to be something personal on your part, because he’s done a heck of a job in his limited chances as a starter, especially last yr. Consider this:

(1) DROBINSON has 7INT’s in 78gms over the last 5yrs as a starter.

(2) DFOXWORTH-has 6INT’s in 76gms over the last 5yrs as a starter.

(3) NASOMUGHA-has 3INT’s in 46gms over the last 3yrs as a starter.

(4) RBARBER—has 6INT’s in 48gms over the last 3yrs as a starter.

Compare their stats to BGrimes’ 7INT’s(6 in one season)in 30gms over the last 3yrs as a part time starter, and he only played in 2gms his rookie season. I think he did one hell of a job considering he didn’t have the benefit of a pass rush and his safeties and 2 of his LB’s were 1st time starters with the team.

Ken Strickland

May 14th, 2010
11:11 pm

I see no reason CB DFranks won’t make the roster. Last yr we carried 6 CB’s. If we carry that many this yr, he would join DRobinson, BGrimes, COwens, BWilliams and CJackson. There will be a real battle at WR, and the results might have an impact of Franks.

If TD and Smitty decide to use WR EWeems more in the OFF, he would have his punt and kick return duties eliminated, and that favors Franks. Last yr we carried 5 WR’s. If we carry that many this yr, we know RWhite, MJenkins and HDouglas are locks. That leaves 2 slots for EWeems, BFinneran, KMeier, AStrickland, TBergeron, BHarvey and RWolfe to compete over. Whether BFinneran makes the team will depend on how much our coaches value his special teams ability.

Grimes is what 5ft nothing but plays like he’s 6′4. Dudes got tons of heart and is a definate baller. Any corner that averages 2-3ints a year is a good average. How many break ups were there in there too? His main thing is his size. We just got to make sure we don’t have him matched up with someone man to man that he can’t physically cover, like a Fitzgerald or Marshall. He’d probably be more valuable in the slot in some games. Just hopes he keeps it up & we give him some S help over the top when he needs it.

chris taylor

As far as Weems, he better bust some punt/kick off returns for TD’s or he’ll be out of here. He’s just not valuable enough in the pass game. He wasn’t horrible on returns but is he good enough at it to keep just for that? Is Finn? We’re starting to emphasize on versatility more & more. I like our drafted WR’s more than him, especially ceiling wise.

Magnificent Saturday Cage! — Hope all of you are doing well as we hit the pinnacle of another great week.

Franks — Its almost a lock and certainty that Franks not only makes the team, but could well work his way into the CB rotation, maybe as a CB in quarter type situations, or could even replace Jackson in dime situations. Its really pretty amazing to see the transformation of our CB corps in such a small amount of time. Its gone from the weakest to one of the strongest positions in a matter of a couple of years. TD wasn’t playing around with the CB corps and we surely know it by now.

Here we are in 2010 with the following expected CB rotation: Dunta Robinson, Chris Owens, Brent Grimes, Brian Williams, Chevis Jackson, and Dominique Franks. 1 holdover, 2 FA’s, and 3 draft picks. Not too d@mn shabby. Now look at our CB corps in 2007…….

2007 CBs – Meangelo Hall, Chris Houston, Lewis Sanders, Daren Stone, David Irons, and Jimmy Williams. In a word WOW!. Obviously, nothing has been proven on the field yet, buts its hard to imagine our secondary not being infinitely better with 4 proven starters (Robinson, Grimes, Owens, Williams), an immense talent with a fire lit under his hide (Jackson), and a rookie with huge upside stolen in the 5th round (Franks). I couldn’t be more excited about our CB corps. What a difference a year makes, huh?

Ken Strickland

I was wondering why DE LSidbury is rated so highly as far as athleticism, strength and overall ability, but KBiermann, who’s not nearly as gifted, seems to have progressed more. Then I read an article that gave me the answer.

Sometimes a player that’s not as gifted athletically will encounter problems at the high school or college level trying to make the same plays the same way more athletically gifted players routinely make. This forces them to refine their approach and develop multiple moves and counter moves to be effective. The more athletically gifted players are able to use either speed, quickness, strength and/or athleticism to get the job done without having to develop any additional moves or counter moves.

This was the case with JAnderson in college. The bull rush moves he used so successfully in college haven’t worked for him in the Pros. This seems to be the same situation facing LSidbury. KBiermann was forced by circumstance to develop multiple pass rushing techniques earlier in his playing career. If LSidbury can learn to incorporate instinctively the multiple pass rushing moves he said he’s been working on this off season, he might turn out to be an even better version of JAbraham.

The tandem of KBiermann and LSidbury could end up reminding us old schoolers of the tandems of Deacon Jones/Lamar Lundy, Clyde Humphrey/john zook, Dwight White/LC Greenwood.

While it’s not unusual for a coaching staff to turn a position of weakness into a position of strength, how often have any of us seen it done to multiple positions in just one or two doggone season? When TD and Smitty took over this team, we had serious issues at TE, DT, DE, OLB, MLB, both safety positions, CB, QB, RB, OT and OG. After only 2 seasons we are now at least 2 deep in talent at each position. In some cases, like CB, safety and DT, we’re 3 and 4 deep in talent.

The only other Falcon GM and HC tandem that can compare to TD and Smitty as far as accumulating talent, and doing it so quickly, was the tandem of HC Leeman Bennett and GM Eddie Lebaron. Unfortunately for them, they had an owner that wouldn’t spend the money to retain that talent.

Definately, the CB core is a strength now. I like the healthy competition there now. Seems like the CB core of past was always complacent, like it was just an accepted fact that the CB’s in ATL have a mediocrity clause in their contracts preventing them from being great. I think Franks will return punts and fight with Jackson for a spot in the dime packages, maybe fight with Jackson for that spot all season long. He’ll be returning kick-offs by mid-season if Norwood can’t hold up. Sky is the limit with this kid.

While I like Owens, Grimes, et al, here’s hoping that Williams recovers fully by the end (if not beginning) of camp.

The colts in the stable might make one forget, but he made a huge difference in out lineup at the beginning of the season.

I think we keep six again; no reason to cut ties with Jax just yet (esp. given the encouraging early reports).
