Scott, I noticed he failed to make even your top 25 senior offensive guards.

Has this list not been updated yet, or do you not think he is one of the top 30 seniors at his position, despite his First Team All-American honors this year and 6'5 315 lb frame.

I have a few questions regarding your rankings in fact, if you feel up to answering them :)

I bet the questions all are about why [insert Iowa player] isn't in the top 3.

Top 3? No.

A first-team ALL AMERICAN with prototypical size from a school known for its NFL OL in the top THIRTY!!!? Yes.

Who named him a 1st Team All-American?

1st team big-ten maybe.

First team All Big-Ten, and First team All-American by one magazine.

2nd and 3rd from a few others.

Either way, definitely not worthy of even a top 25 rating at his position.

Seth Olsen named to the CFN All-Bowl team, still hardly worthy of a top thirty ranking at his position.

Two more Hawkeyes not even listed in the top thirty for their positions on this website receive shrine bowl accolades..

Maybe I'm onto something?

* Iowa CB Bradley Fletcher is a big at 6'0 / 200 and he held his own in one on one drills. It's early, but he flashed some decent instincts out there today.

* Iowa guard Seth Olsen had the best day of the offensive linemen in my opinion. He was terrific against speed rushers and bull rushers and he showed a nice ability to get to the next level on LBs.

They are both in there.

Fletcher has actually been in my rankings for a while and I really like him. His stock is going to soar in the coming months. 6-2, 200 pounds and runs a 4.40.

Olsen I just added recently (as well as Rob Bruggeman).

Olsen is drawing praise for his technique in East-West Shrine Game practices.

I never heard of this guy. At best will be a late round pick, most likely undrafted. Might be best served to go to the CFL.
