03/08/2013 - 2013 Clemson Pro Day: Two players who weren't invited to the NFL Combine - All-ACC selections Freeman and Ford - hoped they elevated their prospects Thursday. Freeman, who topped everyone in the bench press with 34 repetitions of 225 pounds, has bulked up to around 295 pounds. "It's amazing what happens when you get out of coach (Chad) Morris's offense - you don't have to be fast-paced all the time," Freeman joked. Freeman has some private workouts scheduled and said he's "just hoping someone will give me a chance." - Scott Keepfer, The Greenville News

And he kept that momentum going during his workouts with his 40-yard dash in the mid-4.7's while looking fluid and natural in his routes. Ford also added nearly 10-pounds of muscle, weighing in a 245 and admitting he needed to bulk up for the draft process. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
