Heath Benedict

Sad news yesterday, as NFL draft prospect Heath Benedict passed away from natural causes.

I knew very little about Benedict, beyond that he played at Newberry College (a D-II school) after getting injured at Tennessee.

Benedict, a 6-6, 334 OT, was projected to be a mid-round pick in the upcoming draft.

We can debate whether NFL players are getting too big, whether they're on steroids, a whole slew of other issues - but not right now.
