NFL.com's Bucky Brooks thinks Missouri senior QB James Franklin "is working his way back onto the radar of scouts."
Franklin has amassed nearly 1,000 yards of total offense in three games, penance for his rough 2012 campaign. "As a passer, Franklin has been more decisive from the pocket and has shown improved accuracy on intermediate throws," Brooks writes. Franklin destroyed Big 12 defenses in 2011, posting a 3,000/1,000-yard campaign as a sophomore, before he limped through an injury-riddled 2012 season in the SEC. "It's very likely that a team could find him as an intriguing offensive weapon based on his size, athleticism and speed," Brooks writes. "With Denard Robinson paving the way for athletic college quarterbacks to make an NFL roster as a versatile playmaker in the backfield, Franklin is likely to get a shot to make his mark in the NFL."
