I've been doing my darndest to take a look at breakout players and try to divine what some of the guys down the depth chart will be doing come 2013. One thing we haven't really discussed is what to do with players down the depth chart who have been disappointing.

Enter Dominique Franks. Coming out of college, I liked Franks because he seemed like an athlete and a potentially quality tackler at a position of need. By the end of 2011, when Franks had two interceptions and had actually started four games, I saw a cornerback a little rough around the edges who had the chance to take some snaps outside this season. It's fair to say I was still reasonably high on his potential.
