Josh Freeman everyone’s new whipping boy

by Roland Johnson on March 30, 2009

Josh Freeman, has been on a upwards spiral the last month, but it now seems he has turned into every draft analyst whipping boy. According to Wes Bunting, of the Nationfootballpost.com in which he uses a quarterback completion percentage in his last year as a starter to determine how good a quarterback will be in the pros.

Bunting suggest that, because Freeman only completed 58.6% of his passes in his final season, Freeman will become another flop in the long line of former first round quarterbacks who have busted in the NFL.

NFL scouts and officials are intrigued by Freeman’s elite size, arm strength and physical skill set. However, his subpar completion percentage is something I think will follow him throughout his NFL career. Freeman has never been a real accurate passer from the pocket and is slow to recognize coverage and anticipate throws. Those are three traits that don’t bode well for his overall development and should be red flags to teams interested in drafting him.
