#38 Thaddeus Franklin
Class: RS Junior
Position: Running Back
Hometown: Versailles, KY
Thoughts: Thaddeus is another walk-on for the Cards at the running back position. I touched on the running back situation briefly when covering McGriff-Culver back on Day 49, but it warrants mentioning again. We are loaded. Yes, the loss of Wright hurts and I wished he would have stuck around another year, but we have some quality players filling in. I'll try not to bogart Mr. Franklin's summary with all the other players, but with Perry, Brown, Lamb, Radcliff, Butler and now potentially Dyer....there just aren't enough plays. Thaddeus will hopefully gets some reps this season since I think everybody who puts in the time and effort deserves that opportunity. My wish for Thadd is that continues to push everyone else to be better.
