NFL Draft Rumors: Devonta Freeman works out for Miami Dolphins


Florida State Seminoles’ running back Devonta Freeman has been considered underrated and pointed to as a potential steal in the 2014 NFL Draft by many pundits.

Freeman has shared carries throughout his career, playing with likes of Washington Redskins’ running back Chris Thompson and the bruising James Wilder, Jr., who also entered this year’s draft.

He has been drawing interest from the Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints and on Friday, he worked out for the hometown Miami Dolphins, according to Omar Kelly of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Freeman, who bypassed his senior year to enter the draft, has already visited with the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots, and he’s one of the higher rated prospects attending the Dolphins’ Pro Day on Friday. He joins nearly three dozen local draft prospects participating in the Dolphins’ workout.

Freeman is a Miami native, attending powerhouse Miami Central High School before spending three years playing for Florida State.

Last season, Freeman became the first Florida State running back to rush for over 1,000 yards since Warrick Dunn, gaining 1,016 yards and 14 touchdowns on only 173 carries.
