National Football Post

Florida State running back Devonta Freeman is visiting the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, according to a league source.

He's already visited the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, and participated in the Miami Dolphins' local prospect day.

Freeman is regarded as a rising draft prospect.

Freeman rushed for 1,016 yards last season for the Seminoles' national championship squad on 173 carries, scoring 15 touchdowns with a career-high 22 receptions for 278 receiving yards. He was the first Seminoles running back since Warrick Dunn to rush for over 1,000 yards.

Freeman ran the 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

An All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, Freeman is expected to go anywhere from the second round to the fourth round.
