Pos: 
Explosive run-defending linebacker who will also get consideration at fullback on Sundays. Plays with excellent awareness, quickly reads or anticipates the action and takes proper angles to the play. Forceful up the field, sells out on the blitz and shows an explosive closing burst. Stays with coverage assignments and is effective in zone. Scrapes well laterally and gives effort in all areas. A leader on the field who gets his teammates in proper position.
Neg: 
Plays faster in a straight line than laterally. At times struggles with his balance and the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack.
Analysis: 
Heiman was tremendously productive on the small-school level and is an athletic prospect who turned in a terrific pro-day workout. He offers possibilities as a run-and-chase inside linebacker or possibly a fullback if he displays any sort of pass-catching ability.
