UTSA 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Reports
Clifford Chattman, CB
Strengths: Tall, instinctive DB who began his career at Texas A&M. Keeps the action in front of him, immediately diagnoses plays, and fires upfield defending the run. Plays tough, physical football, plays while injured, and displays a closing burst. Effectively quarterbacks the secondary.
Weaknesses: Long, leggy, and lacks quick change-of-direction ability. Doesn’t display great range. Possesses a thin build.
Overall: Chattman is a downhill safety who displays ball skills between the numbers. He must get bigger and stronger to have any success at the next level.
Zakhari Franklin, WR
Strengths: Super-productive receiver who displayed consistent progress in his game the past three seasons. Displays naturally soft hands, plays with outstanding body control, and adjusts to the errant throw. Shows great focus as well as concentration, possesses eye/hand coordination, and makes several difficult receptions.

Comes back to the ball to make himself an available target, gets vertical over defenders, and looks the ball into his hands. Competes to come away with the contested grab and snatches the ball out of the air. Uses the sidelines well and consistently extends to grab the pass away from his frame.
Weaknesses: Plays to his 40 time and doesn’t show much of a burst in his game. Average run-after-the-catch skill. Poor vertical receiver.
Overall: Franklin is a well-built receiver with long arms, big hands, and natural pass-catching skills. He lacks next-level speed but has enough ability to make an NFL roster as a possession wideout.
