It pains me to say it but if the kid wants to become a NFL TE, would be an easier sale for the Iowa coaches. They have put them in the league the past decade: Hockenson, Fant, Kittle, Fiedorowicz, Moeaki, Myers, Chandler, and Dallas Clark. We have to go back to Tracey Wistrom (2002) to find the last Husker TE drafted. The next one before that was Johnny Mitchell (92). Our most successful NFL TE was an Iowa kid (Jamie Williams) with 11 years in the league.
