Kansas senior ILB Ben Heeney "is a 'right time, right place' type of linebacker and that's not by accident as he anticipates well with a quick first step to put himself in position to make plays," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
"Those instincts have served him well during West practices, along with his toughness at the point of attack to take on blocks, never slowing his momentum until the whistle blows," Brugler wrote. "The measureables and athleticism aren't special, but Heeney is in the mold of a throwback tough guy at the position who will make it tough on NFL coaches to cut him." Playing for the hapless Jayhawks, Heeney was ultra-productive outside of the spotlight. The 6-foot-1, 228-pounder, who accrued 127 total tackles and 17 TFL in 2014, is looking like a mid-round pick. His stock, however, appears to be on the upswing after a great week of Shrine Game practices. Jan 15 - 5:08 PM
