Scouting report: Coye Francies

Coye Francies

6'0, 185 pounds | San Jose State | Cornerback

Strengths:
Francies has the perfect height for the position with long arms. He plays faster than he times and is a solid athlete. He has good agility and  fluid hips, which allows him to effortlessly turn and run with receivers. Francies is a traditional press coverage cornerback who likes to jam at the line of scrimmage. A solid tackler for the position. Times his jumps well and gets his arms in receiver's faces. He can close on the ball really well and gets up to speed quickly. Willing to help in run support. Also returned kicks in college. Team captain as a senior.

Weaknesses: After going to junior college and being dismissed by Oregon State, Francies is lacking in experience. He only played two seasons of college football. Hands are questionable -- Francies only had eight career pass breakups and four interceptions. Slight frame, so he may not have the strength to jam as well at the next level. Should probably add at least 10 pounds of mass. Somewhat inexperienced in zone principles and it may take him some time to learn different schemes.

Final word: Francies was kicked off Oregon State following the 2006 season after being charged with possession of a loaded firearm. Charges were dismissed and Francies has had no other know character problems. At OSU he looked good in a slightly limited role. He went on to star at San Jose State across from Christopher Owen. Francies is intriguing because of his size and upside due to limited experience. He may not be a starter immediately and is best suited for man coverage.
