RT Orlando Franklin continues to run with the first team, as he has from Day 1 of training camp.

Franklin initially had to hunker down with veteran linemen Chris Kuper and Russ Hochstein to assimilate all the information from the thick playbook after no OTAs. But now itís mostly about refining technique.

RT Orlando Franklin continues to run with the first team, as he has from Day 1 of training camp. (AP Photo)Offensive line coach Dave Magazu likes Franklinís aggressiveness, power and work ethic, but, especially, is continuing to refine the rookieís pass-protection skills.

The main component Franklin is hearing about from Magazu is trying to remain patient and playing with a controlled violence especially in his pass sets, by using proper footwork, body positioning and reach to control opposing rushers.

He better stick there. It's not like we have any other decent options.

Hopefully he can be a healthier version of Otah.

I liked this part:

Magazu said that while Franklin still has much to improve on and learn, he expects the rookie's charming personality and influence to keep him in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future.

"I'm terrified of him," Magazu explained. "We all are."

Yar I misread Wikipedia. Was a bit late to delete the post. Though wiki has Orlando born in April and December. Still, a year off vs Clady's three years is pretty big.

I think he's going to anchor that right tackle position for years, or at least somewhere on that right side of the line. He looks outstanding.

The best case would be for them to find a way to move him inside.

I'm still trying to understand how drafting a guy with prototypical OT size to be a RT, inserting him as starting RT as a rookie, and watching him play well as a rookie at RT... is better served by moving him to guard.

Sounds like he needs to sit on the bench a couple of years and refine his footwork and technique behind a veteran. Then maybe he'd be ready to play on the nfl.

Tebow has worse mechanics than a 12 year old.

Are you talking about Beadles or Franklin?

When Beadles came out he was pegged as an OG. Something about arm-span among other things.

If Franklin, I don't see him as a guard this season - unless his pass protection is atrocious

Franklin.

I don't see him as a guard ever. Unless for some reason he stinks up the joint at RT. He was drafted to play RT, will be given every opportunity to do so, and will be an enormous disappointment if he gets moved to guard.

There were numerous scouting reports that projected Franklin as a solid guard, and you can definitely see it. The thought of him as a power-blocking guard in the run game is something to salivate at.

I think the FO was ready to go with him at guard (over Beadles) when they made the move to resign Harris.

Either way, I think he's going to be a real good player for this team at either position.

Dr. Broncenstein

If Franklin gets moved to guard it will be because he failed at right tackle.

It doesn't matter! When it's game time, he comes to play! Tebow elevates his play when it's a real game...it does not matter what he look like in practice! Tebow is a WINNER, and "mechanics" during "practice" don't matter a damn bit! TEBOW WINS!

Just watched this video about 15 times, checking each player directly involved in the run.

I'll just say...it's a good thing Kuper pulled straight right to help double-team with Franklin against Dareus (#99). That hole was in NO way paved by Franklin alone! Not saying that I don't love Franklin so far...but let's not get ahead of ourselves. :)

I would quit too if my players wanted Orton to play over Tebow.. the NFL is like a bizarro world.. Tebow plays meaningless minutes forced to take sacks in the pocket.. and Orton plays meaningful minutes throwing screens and handing the ball off to running backs..

He stepped up in the pocket and the defender collapsed on him... Tebow stepped up in the pocket and the defender collapsed on him.

They really are nearly identical plays.

Orton has a full second more than Tebow, and is only touched because he ran into a defender rather than moving to his left away from all the defenders. The idea that Tebow had better blocking is completely ridiculous.

Tebow has worse mechanics than a 12 year old.

And yet he still manages to be more effective than the incumbent, lame duck, when given the starting job as a rookie.

If you call 25pts/game "starting from scratch", I'll take my chances starting from scratch.
