Strengths Weaknesses

POSITIVES: Sets up quickly off the snap with good athleticism for the position. Utilizes angles well and understands how to use body position to his advantage. Smart and the leader of a young offensive line in 2012 for Clemson. It doesn't always look pretty, but more often than not, he gets the job done. Strong resume as a four-year starter, recording 48 starts over his Clemson career.

NEGATIVES: Lacks a stout frame and plays light in the pants. Not a glass-eater and plays a tad passive at times. Needs to get stronger and add bulk to his frame to better sustain at the point of attack, but doesn't appear to have the body type to carry 300-plus pounds. Base strength is a question mark as he can be often moved from his spot. Plays a bit tight and needs to stay comfortable in his stance, popping too tall off the snap at times.

03/16/2013 - 2013 Clemson Pro Day: Freeman's numbers in the skills and drills would have turned heads at Indianapolis. Eight centers were there. Two offensive linemen - at any position - were faster in the 40 than his 4.88. His 114-inch standing long jump was third to two tackles. Eight players overall, including three linemen, had more than his 34 reps in the bench press. The best was 38. "It was one of those things I say I was glad I did it (only) once," Freeman said.

Knowing versatility would also be valuable, at 6-feet-4?? Freeman is tall enough to be a guard. And, last week he began working on long snaps.

Like several of his former teammates among the dozen who worked out for scouts at Clemson's new indoor facility, Freeman said he'll continue to work on his strength and conditioning, possibly visit a few teams for more intimate workouts. One scout said he could see Freeman go undrafted then sign as a free agent and wind up playing in the NFL for 10 years or more. "The hay is in the barn. He's done all he can do," Fry said. "He looks good. He's a perfect weight right now. "He's been going at it since last July. He needs to find a little bit of rest time." - Ed McGranahan, The Herald
