Is more of a linear pass rusher at this stage who has the first step to fire up the field inside of opposing tackles and create initial penetration. But again, gets upright the further he has to fight his way though a block and eventually can be anchored against. Now, he does have the body control to cleanly change directions and accelerate, which is evident when asked to stunt, but he just doesn’t have a real grasp on any type of counter move at this stage and is just more of a one-trick pony right now. Lacks power vs. the run game and can be easily sealed/driven off the ball when run at. As of now, doesn’t seem like a guy capable of playing as an every-down defensive lineman and looks more like a nickel rusher only at this stage.
Impression: Has the kind of first step that can’t be ignored, as he knows how to reach the edge and put pressure on the corner. However, he needs to develop some type of counter move and continue to work on getting off the snap count on time. But could end up finding a role at the next level as a pass-rushing specialist in either a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme."
Positive: Undersized college pass rusher who will get consideration at outside linebacker in the NFL. Breaks down well, bends his knees, and is fluid off the snap. Quickly gets up the field, displays the ability to immediately change direction, and gets out to the sidelines making plays. Occasionally stood up over tackle and shows ability off the line of scrimmage on zone blitzes.
Negative: Lacks bulk, controlled at the point by a single blocker, and easily disrupted by opponents. Coming off a disappointing senior season.
Analysis: Freeny is an explosive pass rusher who has shown the ability to penetrate the line of scrimmage and disrupt opponents in the past. He offers potential as a pass rush specialist at the next level yet must make his mark on special teams."
Negatives: Relies too much on his speed... Lacks snap instincts... Limited arsenal... Lacks counter moves... Gets a little too upright in his pass rush... Can be controlled if opponent gets his hands on him first... Not real strong at POA... Lacks power... Very straight-line type of athlete... Can be run at... A bit of a one-trick pony, situational pass rusher at the next level... 0.5 sacks this season, and it came in the first game vs. Norfolk State... 6.5 of 9.5 sacks a season ago came against Texas Southern, Florida International and Howard... Limited starting experience, played behind Jamaal Westerman and George Johnson prior to this season."
