Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat Brett Waechter
Offensive tackle is one of the bigger areas of need for Iowa's 2015 recruiting class, so adding another body there is no surprise. Given his measurements and his small-school background, Waechter is likely a name to file away for a few years; he's going to need an incubation period with Chris Doyle and Brian and Kirk Ferentz before he's ready to contribute at Iowa.
COMPARABLE. Connor Bofelli needed time to add weight and develop into a Big Ten lineman. Once Boffeli had the size he became a serviceable interior lineman and got a shot in the League. Waechter could develop into a tackle prospect too, if the Paulsens don't lock each end down.
