Florida State FB Freddie Stevenson to sign with the Chicago Bears

Freddie Stevenson has a new home.

NCAA Football: Florida State at South Florida Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

FSU fullback Freddie Stevenson was one of the best college football players at his position in 2017. Unfortunately for the Bartow, Florida native, that position is largely being phased out of the professional game, which was why Stevenson went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. However, it didn’t take long for him to catch on elsewhere, as Stevenson, reportedly, will sign with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent.

Stevenson played all four seasons at Florida State and won a national championship with the team his freshman year. In all, Stevenson participated in 50 games over the four years, racking up 132 yards and five touchdowns on the ground with another 160 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

At Florida State’s Pro Day, Stevenson measured in at 6’0, 235 lbs. with a 77 14 inch wingspan.

While at the NFL Combine, Stevenson displayed his strength. He produced 24 bench press reps, good for second among all running backs and fullbacks at the combine.

Scouts raved about the fullback’s agility and aggression that would lead to big blocks, but had concerns about the limited reps Stevenson got that involved him running with or catching the ball.
