  1. 2020 Draft

    https://mobile.twitter.com/HawkeyeFootball/status/1105511808662671361 Watch out for Iowa OT/OG Tristan Wirfs to declare early after next season. Would be a true Junior Didn't give up a sack last season. Started at Right Tackle as a true freshmen. First time ever. Next big time OL out of Iowa. Could be a good RT but probably an elite Guard 6'5 320 lbs
  2. 2019 Draft - Edge Rushers

    https://mobile.twitter.com/misterEbird/status/1102928655209164801 Don't agree with the Bend comment, but people are sleepwalking on Nelson. Looked very fluid in movement in drills, very refined hand technique, and very good production over 3 years
  3. 2019 NFL Combine

    Yeah Amani. Get Paid!
  4. 2019 NFL Combine

    Great time for him. I think a lot of people expected a 4.67 type time
  5. 2019 NFL Combine

    I'd also watch his release off the block. He didn't get a great jump on either attempt and looked a bit awkward. I wouldn't be surprised if at Iowa Pro Day, he skims a little time off that
  6. 2019 NFL Combine

    When do WRs/TEs do the Bench Press?
  7. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

    Morgan is absolutely getting slept on.
  8. Highest-potential prospect?

    I don't know how it can't be DK Metcalf
  9. 2020 Draft

    Too small and developed fumblitis in the preseason. I believe he went CFL
  10. 2019 NFL Combine

    He looks slight a bit because dude has a huge frame and lanky. Holds alot of weight in his arms and legs. Massive biceps which explains why he's so strong running routes out of inline and being able to use his hands to get free. I did read somewhere where people believe he could get up to 265-270 from 250 and still retain his current athleticism.
  11. 2019 NFL Combine

    TJ Hockenson will test really well with Vertical, Broad Jump, and agility drills. Faster than expected 40 too. He gets unfairly judged to Fants athletic rep
  12. 2020 Draft

    Haha. Let's be clear on something. My posting in this was by no means a comparison. Wisconsin produces productive backs like it's nobodies business. Iowa has had some absurd bad luck in the RB game. Both Melvin Gordon and Eno Benjamin were once committed to Iowa. They were the favorite with Mark Ingram before Bama swooped in late Iowa shared the 2004 Big Ten title with a 6th string RB. Shonn Greene was a furniture salesman not on the team the year before he won the Doak Walker haha. It's really frustrating Iowa struggles with having NFL quality RBs and WRs. It's the difference. Alot of good college bacs but not many for the NFL. Tavian Banks would have been amazing in the NFL if not for that horrific knee injury
  13. 2020 Draft

    Why is that an odd comment to make? Everyone holds but Wisconsin has made a career out of it. It's a running joke across the conference. Your TEs hold every time you run outside with a pulling guard. The Badgers are masters at getting away with it. I wish Iowa caught on and could implement it. The two teams run completely different blocking schemes.
  14. 2020 Draft

    He's a good RB no doubt. My concern is how I don't remember a RB in your scheme that wasn't been productive. Taylor is no where near as good as Gordon was. Taylor skill set imo is good vision, strength, and a good top end speed but I don't see the lateral movement, or the cutbacks, and he has some massive runs but they are there because he has a massive hole. He won't have that in the league. As good as he is at recognizing holes and accelerating. How strong he is when he hits that next gear, he is missing some of the most important traits in today's NFL. Quickness, lateral movement, Receiving skills Wisconsin gets away with holds nearly every play like MSU gets away with physical play in Basketball in the big ten.
  15. 2020 Draft

    I like Taylor alot but Saquan Barkley is a rare talent. I just can't agree with better ball carrier. PSU still to this day have struggled with Oline depth since the Sanctions. It will be interesting to see Taylor this next season. I have no doubt Wisky will be able to reload at Oline but the losses on the line will really tell how special Taylor is.
