    I like throwing my body in there and making plays and making tackles,” said Heeney, who has made a combined 200 stops the last two seasons. “But I think middle linebacker is my favorite position. It’s the most fun. I get to make a lot of plays.”

    Perhaps Heeney’s most memorable play came last year against West Virginia when he intercepted a pass and returned it 28 yards for a touchdown to help KU end its 27-game Big 12 winless streak. But at 6-foot, 230 pounds, Heeney isn’t exactly your prototypical NFL linebacker, though he has drawn comparisons to Zach Thomas

    Two things, one for him and one against him. If he can standout at Kansas it will be good because he's surrounded by the 2002 Dallas Cowboys.
    But what works against him is Kansas is the collegiate version of the 2002 Dallas Cowboys, and thus probably he will not get much attention.
