Ourlads' Analysis:

2011 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about CAMERON HEYWARD: Ohio State, 6050 299 4.90. Four-year starter who is versatile enough to play anywhere along the front of a 4-3 or a 3-4 defense. Plays head up or shades any of the front five offensive linemen. Moved around to take advantage of match-up weaknesses. Someone at Penn State riled him up and he proceeded to rack up 11 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks. He has the talent to dominate his competition. Grading his flashes he is powerful and explosive off the ball. Has a quick first step. Can explode and unlock his hips with force. Plays with a good power base and lower body strength. Can bend his knees and play with leverage but will get too high at times. If he plays that high on Sunday, he will get rolled out of the hole. Has the innate strength to run over a blocker on his bull rush. His game is power and strength. Can collapse the pocket with vertical push and effort. Will finish pursuit. His late father was the bone crushing NFL fullback, Ironhead Heyward. No Combine workout due to left elbow surgery. 2010 stats: 48 tackles, 13 TFL, 3 1/2 sacks, 1 FR. First/ second round. (A-34 1/4, H-10 1/8, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
