Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BEN HEENEY: Kansas, 6002 231 4.56. Three-year starter from Hutchinson, KS. Tremendous instincts for the position. Diagnoses and anticipates plays before they happen. Quick first step. Impact run defender. Consistent wrap tackler who uses sound technique. Makes contact and keeps legs moving to drive the ball carrier to the ground. Aggressive at the line of scrimmage and has active hands that allow him to get off of blocks. Closes on ball carriers quickly. Active in pursuit. Best in zone coverage against the pass. Thrived despite less talented supporting cast and mid-season coaching change. Team captain. Throwback, high-motor, high intensity player that will be best on special teams’ coverage. An undersized inside linebacker who developed from a high school safety to an All-Big 12 defender. Despite his stature and the fact he toiled in anonymity at Kansas, his ability to read and react as well as his production will be impossible to overlook for talent evaluators. His passion and instincts for the game should allow him to fit on an NFL roster. East-West Shrine participant. 2014 stats: 127 T, 12 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 2 FF, 1 INT. OSR:3/17. Fourth/fifth round. (A-30 3/4, H-9, BP-19, SS-4.00).
