Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Outstanding on reach blocks, showing good initial quickness and flexibility to seal the backside. He’s a heady player who is quick to recognize and react to twists and stunts up front, and Freeland shows a good sense of timing on combo blocks.
  • In the run game, he shows good burst off the line of scrimmage, with the ability to win at the point of attack. Freeland has enough speed and athleticism to move to the second level and land blocks.
  • He’s a fluid mover in pass protection, with great coordination between his upper and lower body. He sets with a wide base, has the requisite core strength and plays with natural balance, capable of sitting back and handling power.
  • Plays with natural leverage and has the strength to anchor against the bull rush. He also packs a violent initial punch that can stand up pass rushers.
  • Uses his hands well, with good hand placement to maximize his powerful punch. Freeland shows impressive coordination between his upper and lower body when moving in pass protection.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks instincts as a pass protector, oversetting and getting beat inside.
  • Can be beat off the edge coming out of his stance lunging to reach speedy wide rushers.
  • Sometimes Freeland simply gets too impatient to sit back in his set, reaching and lunging, and displays poor balance.
  • Despite being fluid he's still a little waw as a pass protector, looking choppy and unnatural when moving back into his set, often playing too upright.
