Former GM Tom Heckert passes away

Recommended Posts

Tom Heckert was by far my favorite GM....

He was the GM of Cleveland for 3 years and in that time he got us...

Joe Haden - 1st round

TJ Ward - 2nd round

Colt McCoy - 3rd round

Phil Taylor - 1st round

Jabaal Sheard - 2nd round

Jordan Cameron - 4th round

Buster Skrine - 5th round

Craig Robertson - undrafted FA

Mitchell Schwartz - 2nd round

John Hughes - 3rd round

Travis Benjamin - 4th round

Billy Winn - 6th round

Josh Gordon - 2nd round

Tashaun Gibson - Undrafted FA

He wasn't always good at maximizing talent (I felt he drafted guys WAY before he needed to)

But he was sure as hell good at figuring out who would be talented enough to play in the league.

Can't believe hes gone at only 51!  I'll never forget Heckert!

51.

Way way too young

Love reading these things just having hit double nickels about 6 weeks ago.  Vinnie Paul's passing just about did me in.  :(

Sad stuff, especially at that age. There was no GM I hated more on draft days but he proved to be much smarter than me.

Yeah same, He made those picks that made you go who???? and then they turned out good. Best GM since we came back excluding Dorsey who we can't judge yet.
