CJ hail mary to lose by 8. Was a great throw. 60+ yards.

Of the remaining teams in the playoffs, only the Saints don't have a former Hawkeye on their team. The Bills have 3 former Hawkeyes and the Chiefs, Packers, Rams and Bucs have 2 each.
I know the Browns have Clayborn. Anyone else?

I don’t understand why Josh Jackson would suck at special teams but he’s never active for them so it’s clear he does.

Yeah it’s weird Jackson has really not done anything in the league

Iowa with more than Alabama and Clemson combined, and possibly as many or more as Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State (who was 2 or less).

Sargent reminds me of the non Beastmode running backs the Seahawks always have.

My analysis could be way off.

They did the same thing with Mark Ingram, bring in some team culture guys for the rebuild. People in the league love Kirksey but he can't stay healthy and the end of last year he did not play his best.

He was on the fast track to being a top NFL corner. Crazy he's doing a 1yr / 3.5 deal.

I love Desmond King, he is an all time great Iowa Hawkeye, but it is unquestioned that he is just a pain in the ass.

This is a guy that got himself suspended from starting the final game of the regular season at Iowa because he couldn't show up on time for meetings and was a distraction.

He went from All-Pro one year to a total headcase the next year while forcing a trade. His new team had no interest in re-signing him and now taking a $3.5m one year deal with maybe the worst organization in the NFL.

Look who his agent is for fuck's sake.

I think Des’ bigger problem is he has barely enough speed to play in an NFL secondary. He ran a 4.6 at the combine and I don’t think he’s gotten faster.

Yeah no, it's the other stuff Doug mentioned. He played at a very high level as a rookie.

He’s getting older and the average NFL combine time for a corner is sub 4.5 and he runs a 4.6+. Plenty of corners have been a pain in the ass but continued getting work (Pac-Man, Marcus Peters, DeAngelo Hall, etc). Des does not have NFL corner speed

I thought he ran something like a 4.5. Not blazing probably fine for a nickel corner.

Roughly 50 defensive backs get drafted every year. Eventually he would become a cap casualty regardless of his skill level.

I appreciate that.
