in most cases the expectation for a RB is 6-0 210+ or else they call them small or undersized.
Sweet, I would take Clinton Portis in his prime any day of the week.
I'd say Franklin has average size, with above-average speed, and above-average ability. He's a perfect candidate to take the place of an aging Willis McGahee in Manning's single-back set. All they need is a fast RB, who can run between the tackles, catch the rock, and make plays. Franklin fits the bill and could be available at #58 when the Broncos pick. He'll be the best RB available at any of the Broncos picks unless you want to pick Lacy in round 1 (who will probably be picked by GB anyway).
Franklin is the probably the best option, with the best value, if he's still there at #58....if you want to replace McGahee and save $5M over the next two years.
