There is a lot to like with Scott Frantz as an offensive tackle and the traits he has also could see him move to guard at the next level. He has good versatility for position and scheme, which will boost his value.
All of Frantz's cons can be worked on with proper coaching and a proper strength and conditioning regiment. There is a future in the NFL for Frantz, and the traits are that of a potential starter after a year of development.
Frantz is openly gay, which will draw some blowback from a minority of fans, players, and even teams and that is an issue a prospective team will have to navigate and have a pre-determined plan on how to manage, even though sexual orientation shouldn’t matter.
Fit with Broncos
There isn’t a better team fit for Frantz than the Broncos and that is for multiple reasons. One of them is having his former Wildcats teammate and roommate Dalton Risner there, which would help in the locker room with any potential problems that might be encountered due to his sexuality.
Also, pairing Frantz with Mike Munchak would be a match made in football heaven. Munchak focuses on improving technique and that is what Frantz needs when it comes to his hands.
Grade: Early Round 4
Where he Goes: Round 5-to-Undrafted (due to the non-football considerations surrounding this prospect, we, unfortunately, can't project where he'll go with accuracy)
