Yesterday I brought you the offensive depth chart for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Today, I will bring you the defensive depth chart. Obviously this unit will be missing it’s three best players from a year ago, but the Hawkeyes are known for developing their talent and there should be three new guys ready to fill the void at the linebacker positions.
Lets take a look at the defensive starters going into the spring.
RC: Desmond King, Malik Rucker
Keyvonte Martin-Manley will keep his duties as punt returner and Jordan Canzeri will be the kick returner. Tyler Cluver replaces Casey Kreiter as the long snapper and Kornbrath will be the holder. Obviously the biggest change is at the linebacker spot, but the Hawkeyes have everyone back on their defensive line and half of their defensive backfield that will be highlighted by sophomore, Desmond King. Everything is subject to change before the year starts, but right now it looks a lot like I thought it would.
