There is another Belichick making his way through the scouting trail this year.

Stephen Belichick, a New England Patriots assistant and son of head Bill Belichick, was at Kansas University last week. And he was there for a private workout with linebacker Ben Heeney, the 2015 NFL draft prospect shared in his draft diary, via Tom Pelissero of USA Today.

“I just had a private workout Friday morning with the New England Patriots,” wrote Heeney. “They sent Bill Belichick’s son, Steve Belichick, who’s on staff there. It was just a quick, 20-minute workout on the field and then we went inside and watched film.”

The 6-foot, 231-pound Heeney is projected as a fourth- or fifth-round pick this spring, after amassing 335 tackles, 35 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, four interceptions and five forced fumbles over his four seasons with the Jayhawks.

Regarded as a sideline-to-sideline inside linebacker with a background on special teams, Heeney was named first-team All-Big 12 in 2014, after being named second-team All-Big 12 in both 2013 and 2012.

The 34-game starter was invited East-West Shrine Game in January, then later the NFL Scouting Combine in February, where he went on to record a receiver-like 4.59 40-yard dash, along with a 6.68 three-cone, a 4.00 20-yard shuttle and an 11.06 60-yard shuttle.
