NFL: 2015 NFL Draft Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

I said earlier today that I would rather swim in a pile of garbage than watch the NFL draft, and yet I’ll still probably end up watching the draft.

I’ll tell myself this year I have more incentive to do so, seeing as Iowa has a handful of guys who get their name called during this obscenely drawn-out event.

We’ve already taken a look at best-case destinations for our Hawkeyes, but that’s in an ideal world.

So, let’s sit back, drink a lot in order to stomach this thing, and hope no one goes to the Browns, Jaguars or Bears.
