Pittsburgh Steelers TE Connor Heyward "impressed in offseason workouts" and figures to be in a hybrid tight end/fullback role in an offense that values versatility in its skill players, according to ESPN.com's Brooke Pryor.
Huddle Up: Pryor also notes that Heyward worked mostly with tight ends and receivers in the spring, so he is unlikely to be in direct competition with fullback Derek Watt. Heyward also is highly unlikely to threaten Pat Freiermuth at tight end, so the rookie will almost certainly back up both spots and be used as the occasional mismatch weapon in heavier personnel groups. It is unlikely he will enjoy much in the way of redraft value in 2022.

Michigan State TE Connor Heyward performed well during the NFL Scouting Combine and could receive a role similar to the one San Francisco 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk has in the NFL once he is drafted.
