#3 at QB
Freeman is a strong, athletic signal caller who has the physical attributes and upside to be a star. He has great size and a strong arm. He can make all the throws, but has to work on his accuracy. He has good pocket awareness and finds the open receiver, but has to improve his footwork and lacks straight-line speed. He's more of a project than a finished product and will be drafted solely on his upside.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||It wasn't a secret that this football team liked Freeman and they finally have addressed the future of the quarterback position. Many in the league believe Freeman needs to sit for at least for one season to improve on his mechanics. He has a terrific arm and once he's ready to play, he should be the starter for long time to come.|
