Kansas senior LB Ben Heeney accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.
Playing for the hapless Jayhawks, Heeney has remained anonymous to most fans. He should not be discounted as an NFL prospect, however. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline recently wrote that Heeney has continued to play "productive football." If he latches on with an NFL team, Pauline speculated that it will probably be as a back-up linebacker and special teams player.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline observed that despite Kansas' continued mediocrity, Kansas senior LB Ben Heeney has continued to play "productive football."

Heeney has 101 tackles to lead the team through nine games. 10 of those have gone for loss. The senior also led the team in tackles in 2014. "Entering the season with a middle round grade from scouts, he’s a good football player who lacks top measurables," noted Pauline. If he latches on with an NFL team, Pauline speculated that it will probably be as a back-up linebacker and special teams player.

CBS Sports'Dane Brugler notes that Kansas senior LB Ben Heeney "has the mental make-up and competitive nature needed for the position."

"Heeney has the mental make-up and competitive nature needed for the position and he will make it tough for a NFL team to cut him next year," Brugler wrote. The Jayhawks' prospect lead the team in tackles for the last two years, while being the heart and soul of the defense. Look for Heeney to be one of the team leaders for the Jayhawks in 2014. Brugler is a fan of Heeney's "try-hard motor" and notes that he "leaves everything he has on the field."
