An outstanding rebounder, Franklin pulled down 11 boards per 40 min played.
This guy carried the San Diego State Aztecs on his back in a very strong Mountain West Conference, leading the team in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals.
At 6'5'' and 190 pounds, Franklin has good size for an NBA shooting guard. He is one of the toughest players in this draft class and will create his own shot and get to the rim effectively.
A crafty player, he simply finds ways to score the basketball and will be able to score in the 14-16 PPG range within a couple of years of pro experience.
His 11.3 rebounds per 40 minutes played is by far the best of any shooting guard prospect in the draft, and his defensive tenacity will allow him to cover multiple positions at the pro level. While his outside shooting needs improvement, he will work tirelessly at that and will become a better perimeter shooter.
Franklin will prove to be a key component to a very good basketball team one day.
