Georgia Tech defensive end KeShun Freeman earned himself a rookie mini-camp invite with the Baltimore Ravens.
Georgia Tech’s KeShun Freeman became the fourth former Yellow Jacket on Saturday night to earn himself a shot an NFL roster. Freeman joins Freddie Burden (Cleveland – rookie minicamp), Corey Griffin (San Francisco – UDFA), and Antonio Simmons (Tampa Bay – UDFA).
Freeman’s career at Georgia Tech started with promise but was rather disappointing over his final three years. After having a Freshman All-American awarding season in 2014 that saw the then freshman finish with 54 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 9.5 tackles for a loss, the LaGrange native never topped any of those numbers again.
Over the course of the next three seasons, Freeman never finished with more than 44 tackles and recorded just 39 and 22 the last two seasons. His sacks and tackles for a loss numbers diminished as well recording just 2.5 sacks over his last three seasons and 11 tackles for a loss.
That being said, Freeman did show durability over his career on the Flats playing in 50 games while starting 48 consecutive games for the Yellow Jackets. The only games he did not start for the Yellow Jackets were his first two career games in 2014.
The last three years really hurt Freeman’s draft stock after his phenomenal freshman season. Perhaps, it was a bit of opponents knowing how to game plan against the Georgia native or perhaps he struggled with the higher expectations by both the coaching staff and fans either way, Freeman’s freshman season is the biggest reason he will earned himself a rookie minicamp invite with the Ravens.
Freeman will hope that the flashes he showed his freshman season return next month when he travels to Baltimore to take part in the Ravens minicamp.
