It is officially draft season

iowatreat54 10-18-2012 11:12 PM

Let's get a couple things straight.

1. No one, and I mean no one, calls Weisman the Hebrew Hammer.
2. Weisman had 2 carries for 8 yards in the season opener, and dropped a sure TD pass vs. Iowa St. in game 2. So he's played in all 6 games.
3. Matt Tobin is the worst.
4. Brandon Scherff is the truth.
5. Joe Gaglione played a bunch last year, just never starting or significant minutes.

Ryan Braun is the Hebrew Hammer so they need to find a new nickname for him

Adam Goldberg would like to have a word with you

Tobin's actually really good.

Hawkeye fans all over are calling him the Hebrew Hammer, my apologies for missing 10 yards in the first two games.

Yes, it is draft season, because Iowa constantly has 5 or more players drafted each year, more than 85% of teams in D1 Shane. Live with it.

Gaglione barely played last year, he was hurt, as he has been for three years. He's been the surprise of the D thus far.

Now, does anyone have constructive feedback? Anyone seen these guys play at all? Simple questions, feel free to answer like intelligent human beings, THANK YOU.

Wait for 30 minutes after you eat before you go swimming.

Tobin was awful last year, and is serviceable this year. He is a 5th year senior and is probably tied with a RS frosh for most holds and false starts on the team. He's solid in the run game but abysmal in pass protection. I would be shocked if he gets drafted.

Granted I no longer reside in Iowa City, but I have not heard anyone say or read anyone call him the Hebrew Hammer. It's unoriginal and already belongs to Ryan Braun. And you said he didn't even play in the first two games, when he did and pretty obviously in the Iowa St. game. Regardless, right now he isn't a draftable prospect. If he remains the starting HB through next year and stays healthy, he can probably become the top FB prospect.

As far as "draftable" prospects for 2013, Iowa doesn't really have many at this time or at least many that warrant discussion above round 3. I don't see anyone leaving early, so for seniors Micah Hyde is probably the best overall prospect but will be drafted as a safety. James Ferentz will be drafted in the mid rounds, and Keenan Davis might go late. Gaglione might get drafted, but unless he continues/increases production he won't be more than a mid round pick.

I'm probably forgetting one or two guys, but the 2013 Iowa draft class is relatively weak. Even if someone comes out early, there's really no one as of right now that stands out. 2014 will be a lot better with Scherff, Morris, Kirksey, Hitchens, CJ Fed, and Alvis all leaving (possibly with Scherff).

It belonged to Hank Greenberg before him. Should Braun find a new nickname as well.

Treat, I think Tobin will get drafted.

Hyde, Davis, Ferentz, Tobin, and Gaglione. I'm not confident in Vandenberg getting drafted, he does have tools, but just isn't having a good year.

Next year Alvis, Kirksey, Morris, Hitchens, Miller, Fiedorowicz, Meyer, and Van Sloten all have a shot. Lowery needs a big year for consideration, but he has all the tools.

Sophomores, Davis has flashed some ability, I think Law will finally get his shot next year, and see the field, Weisman is surprisingly nimble for his size, and very powerful, Scherff is further along now than reiff was at this time.

We have plenty of NFL talent right now.

Everyone listed looking pretty awesome tonight against a real/non-MAC level team tonight. Great call.

bearsfan_51 10-24-2012 08:57 PM

I think I found told's lady.



I'm sure he won't be back for a while until Iowa starts winning again.

I'm also quite certain that Matt Bernstein former UW (Wisconsin) FB was also dubbed this name.
