NFL Draft Rumors: Devonta Freeman worked out for Patriots, Dolphins and Falcons, visited Vikings and Miami


Florida State Seminoles’ running back Devonta Freeman rushed for over 1,000 yards for the National Champion Seminoles and is now seeing his stock start to rise.

In fact, there are several teams that showed a great deal of interest in Freeman.

According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and The National Football Post, Freeman has worked out for the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons and visited the Minnesota Vikings and Dolphins.

Florida State running back Devonta Freeman worked out for the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons and visited the Minnesota Vikings and Dolphins, according to a league source.

Freeman also had dinner with the Pittsburgh Steelers surrounding his Pro Day workout.

Freeman is regarded as a rising draft prospect.

Each team could use a  running back. Freeman, who is also a good receiver, could be used like Kevin Faulk once was and is from Miami so he’d clearly be a good fit in either place.

In 2013, Freeman rushed for 1,016 yards and 14 touchdowns on 173 carries. He caught another 22 passes for 278 yards and a touchdown.
