Has Feleipe Franks already proven he's got a role on offense?


The Falcons have a pair of players who are switching positions and hoping to carve out a role on offense, Avery Williams who is now taking snaps at running back and Feleipe Franks who is transitioning to become a Tight End.

Despite some real hesitancy about what Franks could accomplish moving away from being under center, former NFL'er Hugh Douglas has been quite impressed by what he's seen from the QB-turned Tight End in the first week of training camp.

“The fact the Feleipe Franks looks like he probably can play TE and be pretty productive, I might be wrong about his ability to play as receiving tight end,” says Hugh Douglas. “As a blocking tight end that remains to be seen, but as far a guy that can go make plays for you, he might be that guy.”

Despite being listed as a QB in his first two seasons with the Falcons, he wasn't used traditionally like one, taking 36 snaps on special teams in 2021, something most QB's don't do.

If the Falcons can adapt Franks to the offense, use him similarly to how the Saints have been using Taysom Hill in recent years as a multi-purpose weapon, he could find a role on offense that makes him an important player.
