Patriots players told me of a nice moment after practice with Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz (pictured) addressing the team. Ferentz's remarks sparked a round of applause. Bill Belichick on Ferentz: "Winningest coach in Iowa football, longest tenured FBS coach at one school. He's coached at every level successfully. I think his resume speaks for itself. He's a tremendous person. I learned a lot from him in the three years he coached for me at the Browns. I'm grateful for our friendship and relationship — and the family members that he has sent us."

Iowa TE Noah Fant gives the Broncos vertical ability at the tight end position. With the athletic traits to flex from the formation, Fant can create matchups from multiple alignments for QB Joe Flacco.

Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson to the Lions at No.8 overall. Hockenson has the athletic traits to win in the passing game. He's a detailed route runner with the ability to produce after the catch. Plus, he will finish as a blocker. Think of Hockenson as a middle of the field threat for QB Matthew Stafford in Detroit.
