Draft Scout Orlando Franklin News
03/12/15 - G Orlando Franklin left the Broncos for the Chargers Tuesday (March 10), agreeing to terms on a five-year, $35.5 million contract that includes $19 million guaranteed.
Standing 6-7, 320 pounds, Franklin is heading into his fifth NFL season after spending the 2011-14 seasons with the Denver Broncos. A second-round pick by the Broncos in 2011 (46th overall), Franklin started all 17 games at left guard in 2014, including the divisional playoff game. It was his first season at left guard after starting 53 of 54 possible games at right tackle during his first three seasons.
As a rookie in 2011, Franklin started every game as the Broncos averaged a team-record 164.5 rushing yards per game. In 2012, he again started every game and allowed just 3.5 sacks for the season, fewest among right tackles who started every game and tied for third-fewest among all tackles. Franklin missed the only start of his career when he was sidelined by a sprained left knee and left ankle for a game in 2013 against Indianapolis. He still started 15 regular-season and three postseason games as the Broncos won the AFC and advanced to Super Bowl XLVIII against Seattle after allowing the fewest sacks in the NFL (20) during the regular season. Franklin shifted to left guard in 2014 as the Broncos again allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL (17).
03/08/15 - OL Orlando Franklin, unrestricted FA update, will be in high demand after converting from right tackle to left guard last year and flourishing in the second half of the season. That successful transition only enhanced his value, and he could nab over $6 million a year on the market -- which would be more than the per-year average for right guard Louis Vasquez, a first-team All-Pro in 2013. He seems likely to move on in free agency.
01/07/15 - LG Orlando Franklin was cleared by the NFL-mandated post-concussion protocol in time for Wednesday's practice and worked with no limitations.
01/05/15 - LG Orlando Franklin is in the league-mandated post-concussion protocol. He did not practice Monday, but did conditioning work alongside David Bruton, who is also coming off a concussion.

12/31/14 - LG Orlando Franklin is going through the league-mandated post-concussion protocol after suffering a concussion midway through Sunday's win over the Raiders. Franklin was replaced by Ben Garland for the second half.
