Athlon Sports ranked all of the starting QB's in the SEC and named Feliepe Franks the fourth best quarterback in the conference. Per Athlon Sports:
Under Dan Mullen’s watch, Franks emerged as one of the most improved quarterbacks in the nation last fall. As a freshman in 2017, Franks threw for only 1,438 yards and nine touchdowns and rushed for 20 yards on 58 carries. A year later, with Mullen calling the plays, Franks passed for 2,457 yards and 24 touchdowns to just six picks. He also raised his completion percentage to 58.4 and rushed for 350 yards and seven scores. Franks’ development helped Florida increase its scoring average from 22.1 points a game in 2017 to 35 in ’18.
Franks led the Gators to the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl victory over the Michigan Wolverines last season. Florida finished in the Top 10 at the conclusion of the year.
