By most accounts, Orlando Franklin had a respectable rookie season with the Denver Broncos.
The Toronto-raised behemoth started all 16 regular-season games in this football-crazy town and got a taste of the NFL playoffs as part of Tebow-mania.
A year later though, it’s graduate school at the right tackle position. The Broncos under Tim Tebow were a novelty act. The Broncos under Peyton Manning are Super Bowl favourites heading into Saturday’s divisional-round matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.
