Frantz Joseph

Who is Frantz Joseph? O, I remember. He is the guy we just signed from the UDFAs. That's all. Wrong! This guy is one hell of a player. In fact, I wanted him in the fourth round of this year's draft, ahead of Jasper Brinkley. So, who really is Frantz Joseph?

  • Stats
Career Defensive Stats
Year GMS UT AT TT TFL Sack
2006 11 39 22 61 2.5-3 1.0-0
2007 13 64 67 131 12.5-26 2.0-13
Total 24 103 89 192 15-29 3.0-15

 

The stats speak for itself. In 2007, he made 131 tackles and 2006, made 61. He was the team captain his whole career at Florida Atlantic. I know the sack column is not very impressive, but due to his tag of team captain, he was prevented from blitzing.

  • Character

When it comes to character, Frantz Joseph is the best. Did you know, he left Boston College, yes B.J Raji's college to play at Florida Atlantic. Why you ask? To support his mother. He left the prized education, fame, and his probably his 1st round pick at Boston College, to help out his mother. It doesn't get any better.

  • Achievements

Where do I start:

1. Named to the 2008 Lombardi Award Preliminary Watch List

This award is something given to only the best of the best of individuals who line up on the defensive side and play on the line of scrimmage, or 5 yards deep. Although he didn't win, for someone to achieve the honor of being put on that list is great. Brain Orakpo won that award by the way. The reason he didn't receive this award was because of his college and conference.

2.  Butkus Watch List Member

This award is given to the best of the best from the linebackers in the NCAA. I think the only reason he didn't receive this award is because of his school and his college division. Again, being mentioned for this award is enough.

3. Holds The Single-Season FAU Record For Tackles

This shows that he was the leader not only by voice, but also by work ethic and play making. Anyone who leads a team in tackles shows that they have what it takes to make it into the next level. So for all you doubters, he can make that big tackle.

4. Selected Phil Steele's Mid-Season All-Sun Belt Second Team

At mid-season, he was on the All-Sun Second Team. Not bad, but this could've been a lot better. However, not that this was not the final team selection. It was the mid-season selection by Phil Steele.

5. Sun Belt Total Tackles Leader

What does this show you. He is the most dominant linebacker in his conference.
Since he made so many tackles, he definetely knows how to wrap-up and lay the big one.

6. Sun Belt Conference First-Team Member

What can I say. The best linebacker in his conference. He is the full package and is full of potential. He can cover, he can plug up the hole. The all around linebacker. Now, how can he not be successful in the next level.

  • Skills

I'll let the video below sum it up (I like to mention the video is of how good Frantz Joseph is under the most pressure, the Championship game.) Also, I will add one thing. He is pretty darn good in coverage for a college player. All he needs to work on are his speed and his reaction.

  • Conclusion

In conclusion, Raiders fans should be very pleased and excited about this signing. He is definitely a gem in the dirt and I know he will make the team this year and be our back-up MLB and special teams player. In fact, look for him to start.
