  1. 2020 Prospects and beyond

    https://mobile.twitter.com/thorku/status/1134502663423496192 Spring Practice 1 on 1 work with Tristan Wirfs Iowa OL and Chauncey Golston Iowa DE Golston is no slouch and capable of a 8-10 sack season this year
  2. If Iowa could learn to recruit QBs and WRs they'd have quite a few more years like 2015 and 2009 then the 8-4 type seasons. They've done a better job at it but still not where they need to be. RBs Iowa has just had rotten luck. Both Melvin Gordon and Eno Benjamin were once committed to Iowa. Shonn Greene was here, and Iowa was the favorite to get Mark Ingram before Alabama got involved late. They've had 4 stars that didn't pan out or got themselves in trouble.
  3. We'll see on best DE. I've seen both listed as potential top 10 picks. To be fair, Chase has been ahead on mock projections but Epenesa outproduced Young on far less snaps last year. He's bigger and stronger. I have no problem leading the Epenesa bandwagon. 6'5 275 and able to block punts as a edge rusher. Has the ability to be a Jared Allen type talent. Jackson can't play RT. Wirfs would play LT but Jackson isn't consistent at RT. I actually really like Jackson at LT. He has very good lateral quickness and can recognize and adjust to different rushers in pass protection. Jackson has high ceiling though. Only been playing consistent football since his JR year of HS. Wirfs is special. Wouldn't shock me to see him go in top 12. That's how highly thought of he is on campus. He came into Iowa as a freshman at 6'5 317.
  4. If they meet the projected development and avoid setbacks(injuries), Iowa will have 3 guys go in top 50 DE AJ Epenesa- Possibly best DE in next year's draft LT Alaric Jackson- all around great prospect. Size, and capable at both run and pass protection. Quick feet and good hands RT Tristan Wirfs- Y'all will salivate over this kid. Highest ceiling I've seen at Iowa for a Offensive line prospect. Said to be strongest G/T they've ever had. Superb in pass protection. Needs improvement on run protection but Spring practice reports are that the light bulb has turned on here and he's going to dominate. You heard it here first. Potential to be best Oline prospect out of Iowa under Ferentz
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 2019 NFL Combine

    Yeah Amani. Get Paid!
  8. 2019 NFL Combine

    Great time for him. I think a lot of people expected a 4.67 type time
  9. 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
  10. 2019 NFL Combine

    When do WRs/TEs do the Bench Press?
  11. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

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

    I don't know how it can't be DK Metcalf
  13. 2020 Draft

    Too small and developed fumblitis in the preseason. I believe he went CFL
  14. 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.
  15. 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
