Heath benedict dead

Heath Benedict, a two-time Little All-American offensive lineman from Newberry College in South Carolina, was found dead on a couch in his home.

Jacksonville police said no foul play is suspected in the death of the 24-year-old Benedict, a 6-6, 320-pound junior who had planned to enter the NFL draft.

Jacksonville police spokesman Ken Jefferson said Benedict’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of his death. He was found dead Wednesday evening.

Benedict, a native of the Netherlands, transferred to Newberry, an NCAA Division II school, for the 2004 season after redshirting at Tennessee as a freshman in 2002. He played high school football at the Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J.

Sporting News’ Draft ’08 guide ranked Benedict, 6-6 and 335 pounds according to his biography on Newberry’s website, as the ninth-best player at the guard position in this year’s draft class and projected him to be a fourth-round selection.
