The 2013 Senior Bowl watch list was announced yesterday, and five UCLA Bruins saw their names make the preseason cut, tying them for the most in the Pac-12 conference.
Franklin has been a consistent threat for the Bruins out of the backfield over his career. He has rushed for 2,669 yards, good for ninth all time in UCLA history. Franklin has also been placed on the Doak Walker and Maxwell award watch lists for the 2012 season.
The Senior Bowl picks the top 100 seniors each year to compete in a postseason game that allows them to showcase their skills for professional scouts against the best competition in the country. This year's event will take place Jan. 26 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
