NFL Draft Chat.
After being a walk on following a year on the baseball team with his 90 MPH fastball, Greg Heban proved what an outstanding athlete and football player he was as he played in all 12 games at cornerback and on special teams for Indiana. He was a Big Ten All-Academic Team Selection all four seasons at Indiana and was named team captain in 2013. Greg is a natural team leader with versatility who provides a solid run defense with a nose for the football and natural football instincts, ball skills and superior knowledge of the game and defensive schemes.
 
Greg has been called “The best Big-Ten player you have never heard of” and while his draft rankings all very from resource to resource, he will make some NFL team very happy they picked him up once all is said and done.
