Devonta Freeman Biography

Childhood and High school

Devonta Freeman was born March 15, 1992 in Baxley Georgia. Freeman attributes his drive to being the oldest of seven children and the man of the house at age 12. He grew up in the projects of Miami's Liberty City and attended Miami Central High School in West Little River, Florida. There, he led his school to a championship in the 6A state title game, gaining 308 yards on 36 carries and amassing an impressive highlight reel. Freeman was a consensus 4 star running back, the 10th highest rated in the class, and ranked 108th overall by Rivals.com.

College

Freeman committed to play for Florida State in the summer of 2010. He was productive in his first two seasons compiling 1239 yards and 16 touchdowns. Freeman's breakout year was his junior season in 2013, where he rushed for over 1,000 yards at 5.9 yards per carry and scored 15 total touchdowns despite splitting carries with James Wilder Jr. and Karlos Williams. Freeman was first-team All ACC, and along with Jameis Winston, led Florida State to a win in the VIZIO BCS National Championship game.

NFL Draft

Freeman scored acceptable numbers at the NFL Combine, posting a 31.5 inch vertical jump, an 118 inch broad jump and a 4.26 second shuttle. However, a slow 40 time of 4.58 seconds combined with his smaller size at 5'8" saw him drop from his projected early 3rd round grade to a 4th round draft pick. He was selected 103rd overall by the Atlanta Falcons. You can find his full draft profile here.

2014 NFL Season

Freeman was sparsely used as a rookie, splitting time with Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rogers. He only rushed for 248 yards on the year.

Freeman had 3 straight 100 yard games from week 5 to 7. Freeman left a week 11 contest against Indianapolis with a concussion and missed the following game. In total, Freeman rushed for 1056 yards on 265 carries and added 578 yards receiving on 73 catches. He led the league in rushing touchdowns with 11, was selected to his first Pro Bowl, and was second team All Pro.

2016 Season

After his breakout season, Freeman turned in another stellar year in 2016. While ceding more carries to his backfield partner Tevin Coleman, he still compiled 1079 rushing yards on 227 carries and 462 receiving yards on 54 catches. Freeman was also instrumental in playoff wins against Seattle and Green Bay, totaling over 200 yards from scrimmage and scoring two touchdowns. He was selected to his second straight Pro Bowl.
