RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Will Franklin.

2009

Franklin will have trouble making the team out of camp. If he does make the roster, it will be as a special teamer.

2008

We selected Franklin as the teamís supersleeper in our Chiefs team preview for two reasons. First, coach Herm Edwards has never been shy to play rookies, so Franklinís lack of tenure shouldnít hurt him. Second, the Chiefs depth chart at receiver is wide open, with Franklin, Jeff Webb and Devard Darling all competing for a starting spot opposite Dwayne Bowe. Franklinís speed and elusiveness should endear him to a team that lacked offensive explosiveness in 2007. Rookie receivers are always a low-percentage play and Franklin probably wonít see many opportunities, but he has enough upside to be worth a look if youíre throwing darts at high-upside plays at the end of your draft.
