Iowa Tight Ends Turning Heads at NFL Combine
Noah Fant outrunning some running backs.
The NFL Draft Combine is going on right now in Indianapolis and former Iowa Tight End, Noah Fant, is tuning a lot of heads as well as fellow TE, T.J. Hockenson. There's a good chance that both of these Iowa TE could go in the first round. After the success of former Hawkeye tight end, George Kittle, there is becoming a strong tradition of solid tight ends coming from the University of Iowa.
It's rare that two tight ends would go in the first round but both of them from the same same school is unprecedented. One of the reasons that Fant is making noise at the combine is the fact that he ran a blistering 4.51 40-yard-dash.
