Born  6/14/1987

Weight  315
College  Hillsdale
 
Notes:
2009 All-American...Two-time First-Team All-GLIAC selection...Second-Team All-GLIAC selection in 2007...A four-year starter...Played at Hillsdale, so the major knock on Veldheer is a lack of competition to rate him against...At 6-8 and 312 pounds, he is an impressive physical specimen with tremendous upper body strength...Terrific footwork for a player of his size...Bench pressed 225 pounds 32 times and showed solid foot speed as well...Uses long arms well as a pass rusher and can dominate opponents in the run game...A smart player who works extremely hard.
