The weekend saw many players getting dispersed amongst the NFL teams. Some of these players will have a major impact, and go on to pro bowl careers. Others will hover around the league average for career length, and make it for 3 or 4 seasons. One source of the talent pool that has been fairly consistent under the reign of Kirk Ferentz have been the Iowa Hawkeyes.
The Hawkeyes continued a streak with 40 years of producing an NFL Player in the draft. The program labeled as ‘developmental’ appears to have no years in the near future that could end this streak. This kind of longevity in that regard is among the nation’s best:
For the players who were drafted, they were apart of one of the better runs Iowa has had as a program. The high-point of this class was the regular season which resulted in a Rose Bowl appearance in 2015.
Each of the players seem to have found good fits to continue the Hawkeye tradition in the NFL.
