COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FEB 01 Reese’s Senior Bowl Practice

Basketball season has come and gone, a little sooner than we all hoped. But never fear because Iowa State fans have another rite of passage waiting for them every spring: sending our best prospects to the NFL draft with a chance at a 1st round pick. Everyone knows the story by now. George Amundson in 1973 is the first, and to date, only 1st round pick in Iowa State history. 50 years is by far the longest a P5 school has gone between picks.

DE Will McDonald IV is next up. The senior has risen up draft boards after an impressive showing at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine. He plays a premium position. He’s productive. He’s a great athlete. Is this the year the streak is finally broken? We’ll track mock drafts to get a sense, and update as necessary as we hit about 1 month until draft day.
