Justin Francis #94 DE
Height: 6-4 Weight: 270 Age: 24
Born: 2/8/1989 Opa Locka , FL
Experience: 2nd season
High School: Miramar HS [FL]
Francis has played various roles on the defensive line for Rutgers and has a good amount of playing experience despite his senior year being his first as a full-time starter. He is a slow player but has shown good initial quickness and the ability to leverage himself to hold up on blocks and react in the run game. He is undersized to play inside, which he's done at times at Rutgers, but not a fit at end, either -- he could stand to add weight for the next level. Francis is a high-effort player and has fifth- or sixth-round value based on the hope that he can add some weight to his big frame and continue to be a disruptive, high-motor player at the next level.
