RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Ben Heeney.

2016

The Raiders currently have a vacancy at middle linebacker, and the candidates to fill that role realistically include just Heeney and Daren Bates. Regardless, there simply doesn't appear to be enough opportunity to achieve IDP relevance as long as Khalil Mack and Malcolm Smith continue to perform at an extremely-high level.

2015

The Raiders selected Heeney in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, 140th overall out of Kansas. He's currently listed as the backup middle linebacker behind teammate Curtis Lofton. The Raiders have a lot of depth at the linebacker position so it's likely that Heeney will play special teams throughout most of 2015, assuming he makes the 53-man roster.
