And in the third round, they went with someone who could possibly help him block, selecting tight end Jeff Heuerman from Ohio State.
Heuerman, a two-year starter at Ohio State, leaves a bit to be desired in the weight room but a good vertical threat. If you're looking up tape, check the 2013 stuff, not the 2014.
Our friends over at Cincy Jungle said this of Heuerman:
In 2013, Heuerman showed great speed and ability to adjust to footballs that were thrown off target. He is excellent at finding the football and leaping to get it at its highest point.
Some of Heuerman’s weaknesses are his strength on the field. Although he is well known as a weight room leader, it doesn't always translate to the field as he is easily moved off his blocks in pass and run blocking.
We've picked Jeff Heuerman, a very experienced TE from Ohio State. He brings the right mentality & was the top guy on our board at the time.— John Elway (@johnelway) May 2, 2015
Kubiak on Heuerman: "This guy is a leader on a national championship team. That says a lot right there."— Phil Milani (@philmilani) May 2, 2015
