Notes:
Son of former Green Bay Packer quarterback Joe Francis...A walk-on to the Hawaii basketball team in 2002-03, Alama-Francis' potential as a football player got the attention of Hawaii coach June Jones...Having not played football in high school, Alama-Francis learned quickly and earned All-WAC Second Team honors in 2005, finishing with 49 tackles, 7.5 TFLs and five sacks...After putting on substantial weight and coming into this past season at 282 pounds, Alama-Francis went on to earn All-WAC First-Team recognition,finishing 2006 with 39 tackles, 11 TFLs and five sacks...He also amassed 16 QB pressures, recovered four fumbles and forced two others...Excellent speed and athleticism for a player his size...Non-stop motor with relentless pursuit on the backside...Does play high at times and is still learning the nuances of the game...Has the power to win battles at the point of attack, but still relies too much on finesse...Tore his pectoral muscle in the 2007 Hula Bowl and could seen draft stock dip because of the injury.
