  Generally, in sports, bigger is better. Big trumps little. Conventional wisdom doesn't apply where it comes to quarterback, most notably where height comes into play for the NFL. Some NFL teams ahead of the draft downgraded former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett because he measured 6-7. So it probably shouldn't surprise when Feleipe Franks objected when new teammate Trey Knox, measured at 6-5, said the new Arkansas quarterback was a couple of inches taller, a good 6-7. "I'm 6-6," Franks said. "I'm not trying to grow. I'll take 6-5, or 6-6. That's a good height for a quarterback."

Translation: Don't list the Crawfordsville, Fla., product at 6-7. "I do make sure when I'm measured it's without my shoes on," Franks said. There are a lot of things the Razorbacks are making sure about. The covid-19 safety measures are serious. Franks has led some summer 7-on-7 passing drills that are the heart of preparations for the start of walk-through practices July 24. The covid-19 global pandemic took on special meaning to Franks. He traveled to Texas for the funeral of an uncle on June 20. - Northwest Arkansas Times
