Charlie Heck is a tackle out of North Carolina who spent the 2019 season at left tackle after spending his junior year at right tackle. Heck has some good genes as his dad was a first-round pick back in 1989 coming out of Notre Dame.
Heck is a big man, standing at 6’8 311 pounds. He actually ran a 5.16 40-yard dash, which is pretty good for a man of that size. His foot speed is something that the Colts would love on the outside. They need to draft for the future once Anthony Castonzo‘s contract is up in two years.
What would make him attractive to the Colts is his run-blocking ability. He is really good at getting downhill on defensive lineman and clearing space. He can also move well enough to pull on counter plays. Getting out on screen passes isn’t an issue either.
The reason he is only listed as someone to get drafted in the 3-5 round range though is his pass blocking. Because he’s so big, he has some issues bending down to stop low pass rushers. He needs to work on getting on top of rushers to push them into the ground more.
That is something that can be coached though. His size and genes are not. Sitting behind someone as good as Castonzo would be greatly beneficial for him, and he can play both tackle spots. Versatility is very attractive among offensive lineman.
Ultimately, the Colts may not take any of these guys. But they all have great value at their positions and where they are projected to be taken.
