Did you know? Freeland played tight end, defensive end and even a little quarterback while in high school. He was a multisport athlete, playing basketball and taking part in track and field in addition to playing football. He won state in shot put and javelin.

Scouting report: “A sky-scraping tackle prospect with outstanding length and good fluidity, Freeland should get much stronger with time in an NFL weight room. He is an effort-based run blocker who has to really crank up the work rate and technique to try to overcome his leverage disadvantages due to his height. He plays with decent technique in protection and does a nice job of battling through adversity inside the rep. However, he might lack the bend and range to get out and redirect speedy edge-benders. Freeland is an unfinished product with a modest ceiling as a pro.” — Lance Zierlein,
