Packers | Johnathan Franklin needs blocking to improve
Tue, 30 Jul 2013 18:21:39 -0700
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy puts a high value on pass protection, so RB Johnathan Franklin needs to improve his blocking if he wants to see more of the field. He has looked impressive running the ball, but he was reportedly overmatched Tuesday, July 30, in practice on a one-on-one drill which called for the running back to block a blitzing linebacker. "I felt like the outside linebackers clearly got the best of the running backs today," McCarthy said. "We were too high. We weren't sitting down. We didn't have our head up. So it'll be good tape to watch. So that's a drill I'm sure we'll do again."
