Falcons think undersized rookie RB Devonta Freeman can be feature back

At first glance, most people would not consider Devonta Freeman feature-back material. He is 5-foot-8 and weighs a smidge north of 200 pounds. But two people who would disagree are those who had a big say in drafting the Florida State rookie, Falcons head coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff. Both told ESPN's Vaughn McClure last week that Freeman has the ability to be a lead running back.

Fantasy Analysis:

Store this one away, dynasty-league owners. Freeman's pros include 4.50-40 speed, good acceleration and hands, capable blocking skills, and not shying away from running between the tackles. Freeman could make Jacquizz Rodgers @Qui22Rodgers expendable very soon and become Steven Jackson @sj39's direct backup. If everything breaks right, he could be a bonafide star in 2-3 seasons.
