Feleipe Franks is entering his second season in the NFL, and now the former Florida and Arkansas quarterback could be making his debut at a new position.
Franks was seen practicing with tight ends Friday without the red non-contact jersey that the rest of the quarterbacks wear at organized team activities.
Franks in college played one season (2020) at Arkansas after transferring from Florida where he played 3 seasons (2017-19).
He set the single-season school record for completion percentage, completing 68.5% of his passes as a redshirt senior in 2020 at Arkansas.
Franks completed 163 of 238 attempts (68.5%) for 2,107 yards, 17 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Started three games as a redshirt junior in Florida in 2019 before suffering the season-ending leg injury against Kentucky.
At Florida in 2018, Franks completed 188 of 322 attempts (58.0%) for 2,457 yards, 24 touchdowns and six interceptions and rushed for 350 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games as a redshirt sophomore.
Another interesting thing so far at Falcons OTA – Feleipe Franks working the tight end for individual periods.
The QB today wears a white jersey instead of a red one.
