HAMSTERDAM HAS YOUR NFL DRAFT PICKS

Monday Night Football tonight. You'll be seeing Brandon Myers play TE for the Giants. You'll be seeing Chad Greenway play for the Minnesota Vikings. Pretty much every game in the NFL has a Hawkeye in uniform, something we as Iowa Football fans can and should be proud of. But what most people don't realize is the stunning depth of not just players but positions that Iowa produces for the NFL.

Most Iowa fans probably consider us as Tight End U or note how many DBs we have in the NFL, but we've remarkably had every single draftable position (FB, P, K are not exactly draftable) go from the Hawks to the NFL in the last decade,every position except Center in the last 6 years (thanks, Ferentz boys). Here you go, in answer to the last Hamsterdam: Tuesday Trivia Time that I never got around to answering at the time, are the last Iowa draft picks by each position:

Offense:

QB: Ricky Stanzi (2011)

RB: Shonn Greene (2008)

WR: Marvin McNutt (2012)

TE: Tony Moeaki (2010)

T: Riley Reiff (2012)

G: Adam Gettis (2012)

C: Bruce Nelson (2003)

Defense:

CB: Micah Hyde (2013)

SS: Tyler Sash (2011)

FS: Charles Godfrey (2008)

OLB: AJ Edds (2010)

ILB: Pat Angerer (2010)

DE: Adrian Clayborn & Christian Ballard (2011)

DT: Mike Daniels (2012)

For fun, here's the list of non-draftable positions and the last time we had one go:

K: Nate Kaeding (2004)

P: Reggie Roby (1983)

FB: ???? - last player designated as a FB to be taken from Iowa is Bill Reichardt (1952) but there's probably a RB or TE in the middle there that ended up a FB. Maybe even Ladell Betts could fit there?

Anyway, to Hamsterdam, all!
