2013 NFL Draft: KC Chiefs will meet with Clemson center Dalton Freeman

Dalton Freeman is a center from Clemson University, and he'll be visting the Chiefs in Kansas City next week.


The Kansas City Chiefs didn't see Clemson center Dalton Freeman at the NFL Combine because he was snubbed in Indy. They did, however, see him earlier this month at the Clemson pro day. And next week they'll meet with him in Kansas City.

Freeman is projected as a seventh round pick or undrafted free agent. The Chiefs currently have a center on the roster in Rodney Hudson but Freeman is big enough -- 6'4' and 291 pounds -- to be considered for a guard position. Either way, as a late round pick, he'll have to be able to do multiple things to get drafted. It's all about giving the team options, especially offensive linemen. There's certainly a need as a reserve offensive lineman, especially along the interior. Consider me interested.

A little more, via NFL Draft Scout:

Freeman's numbers in the skills and drills would have turned heads at Indianapolis. Eight centers were there. Two offensive linemen - at any position - were faster in the 40 than his 4.88. His 114-inch standing long jump was third to two tackles. Eight players overall, including three linemen, had more than his 34 reps in the bench press. The best was 38. "It was one of those things I say I was glad I did it (only) once," Freeman said.

Any other late round offensive linemen catch your eye?
