Sounds like a nice pick up. That should solidify the rotation.

Danno; Now would I do that to ya? Here is another site that has him #1

1. Aubrayo Franklin, San Francisco 49ers

Age as of 1st September 2011: 31

2010 Grade: +15.5

Key Stat: 37 defensive stops. Third most of all defensive tackles.

Behind The Numbers: Letís be honest, there are not enough quality nose tackles in the league right now, so good ones are all the more valuable. Franklin isnít a one gap nose tackle that is all the rage, but a true prototypical, run stuffing, gobble up running backs two gapper. Heís not going to get after the passer, but when you can anchor a line like Franklin you really donít need to.

Rodgers isn't going to play every down so we need to get a good solid rotation on the DL.
