Kansas State junior quarterback Josh Freeman said Thursday he will enter the NFL draft.
"I've done all the research," said Freeman, who is 6-6, 238 pounds. "Kansas State is starting over and this is what I've always wanted to do. The time is right."
Freeman says he's been told by an NFL advisory committee that he could be a high second round pick. But Freeman could work his way into the first round because of his prototypical size and arm strength.
Freeman said his decision might have been more difficult if Ron Prince had not been let go, but that playing for Bill Snyder was a attractive possibility, too.
"I hope to bring leadership and toughness to an NFL team," Freeman said.
Consider this - the guys we talk about in college - Tebow, McCoy, Bradford, Harrell, aren't necesarily the guys who are going to make it in the NFL. There's no guarantee... so teams have to look at different qualities, and you have to admit, Freeman has a cannon for an arm.
