Hi there,
Sounds as if the brakes are dragging, jack up the wheel and try to rotate the tyre, if very tight remove wheel and inspect disc, it my be turning blue from the heat. You may have blocked brake hose (retaining pressure) or a seized caliper. Check the wheel bearing is not failing as well as that can also cause your problem.
