    I watched Frank Summers play for the last two seasons at UNLV. He is an absolute load to bring down. He has quick feet for a big guy, has better than expected speed for his size. He has good hands out of the backfield and is a willing blocker. On the downside while he possess good hands he basically only ran wheel routes and dumps and swing passes. He also isnt very elusive instead he looks to punish defenders and looks to initiate contact. A total team guy. Would be a very nice pick up from the 5th round on.
