Comparison

Jack Conklin Tennessee Titans

Verified on a college campus at 6-foot-5 1/2 and 308-pounds, possesses the ideal size and athleticism sought at the offensive tackle position.

Transitioned from the defensive side of the ball to the right tackle position as a junior, Heard showcases the size, athleticism, and play temperament to develop into an elite level collegiate prospect at the next level. With a 7-foot plus wing span and almost 37-inch arms, the Neville standout’s combination of length and natural athleticism make him one of the more intriguing players in this year’s cycle.

Although he’s still somewhat raw in pass protection, Heard possesses the adequate foot and body quickness to acclimate quickly at the collegiate level. He also displays good play strength and ability to finish in the run game while flashing some power but can play high at times which leads to some inconsistency in that area.

With more time to settle into his natural role on the offensive line at the next level, we expect Heard to continue to ascend and round into of the best long term tackle prospects in the class. In terms of whether he’ll play right or left tackle at the next level, the Monroe native could play either role but will more than likely depend on how he develops as a pass protector. Projects as an all-conference prospect at the next level with the ability to outperform his current projection and develop into a day one NFL Draft choice.

Athletic Background
