On the Hoof: Extremely well-proportioned and thick body structure.
Needs Improvement: Really only has one move and will need to work on using some other techniques. Heimuli is also a tad stiff and needs to work on improving flexibility. He also needs to be more consistent with pad level.
Most Impressive: His bull-rush may be the best in the country. He is very strong and will not be intimidated by anyone. Heimuli is a headhunter and one of the toughest and meanest competitors in the country.
Conclusion: Has the size and toughness to see some playing time as a freshman. But he will need to add some more moves to his arsenal before he can become an every-down defensive player. He also may be used early in short-yardage situations because he gets a tremendous push off the snap of the all.
