AS OF THIS MORNING. Iowa had a total of three players drafted in this year's NFL Draft. Five other Hawkeyes will have the opportunity to make a team as free agents. We're still waiting to hear on others. B.J. Lowery, Mike Meyer, Don Shumpert and Jordan Cotton could get a shot to make a team this summer. There's news all over the web about those that have received a phone call from an NFL team. Let's see what the web has to say.
FIRST, WE COVERED EVERYBODY.
- C.J. Fiedorowicz was drafted by the Houston Texans in the third round
- Christian Kirksey was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the third round
