Cameron Heyward is a big and athletic defensive lineman. Heyward has the versatility to play both the defensive end and defensive tackle position. He possesses both the size and athletic ability not only to play those positions but be successful. NFL teams will be excited because he will fit any scheme. He can play the defensive end position in both the 4-3 and 3-4 and can move inside to play defensive tackle in the 4-3 scheme. Heyward has good speed which allows him to create pressure on opposing offenses. He has the strength to anchor against the run and eat up offensive lineman’s blocks.
When you talk about what Heyward needs to work on you immediately look at his technique. He needs to continue to develop different and effective pass rush moves. He also needs to remain focused on the fact that he needs to play the run. He has a tendency to pin his ears back and go after the quarterback. This is a concern because he sometimes takes himself out of certain running plays.
The runner-up in our Poll for the Packers at #32 was Akeem Ayers, so here are a couple videos of him as well.
Just to wrap this up, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that participated. I hope you enjoyed the poll along with the debates. Enjoy the NFL Draft everyone!
