    The State has a photo of him w/ their story. He was a big dude, and at least some had him projected as a third or fourth-round pick.

    He worked out with the Jaguars at age 19? Was he not even in school at the time? He certainly wasn't three years out of high school.

    Makes you wonder how many "unofficial workouts" Terrelle Pryor has had.

    So, the Raiders will still draft him in the 5th round?

    Are we sure that's not a misprint?

    From the draft site mentioned in the story: http://www.nfldraftdog.com/2008_nfl_draft/heath_benedict.htm
    He was also 24, not 21. TV station apparently didn't check that last night, and neither did I. Boo to both of us.
    RIP to Mr. Benedict.

    What are the chances of that he died of sudden heart failure or something to do with his weight? RIP and thoughts toward the family.
