    Last Time 5 ISU Players signed NFL Contracts?

    When is the last time 5 ISU players were drafted or signed in free agency in the same year?

    I can't remember that happening in a long, long time, but info is much easier in the internet age.

    Anyone know?

    I did find ISU draft history here, pretty nice summary - but what about free agents?

    Nice link. The 70's were obviously the high point of ISU football.

    I might be remembering incorrectly, but 5 seems about average for the last several years.

    I went back and looked. It looks like 5 signed contracts last year (KO, Money, Rump, Hicks, and LJ)

    I'm sorry if this is "little brother syndrome" but when was the last time Iowa State had players drafted and Iowa didn't?

    I guess little brother grew up and now is getting his !

    Hyde got drafted out of Iowa this year. How about more Iowa State players being drafted than Hawks?

    Iowa did have a player drafted. We had one player more drafted than Iowa. Not much to boost there.

    Re: Last Time 5 ISU Players signed NFL Contracts?

    So in the 70's did they just keep drafting players until the talent pool was dry? I saw a round 19?

    Last time we had more players drafted that the University of the People's Republic of Iowa City was 2001. Not really a ton to brag about, but definitely a sign of changing times, IMO.

    don't mean to derail the thread, but I was curious why Durrell Givens didn't get a look. I'm no scout, so forgive me if the answer is obvious!

    I'm more surprised that no one picked up Reeves.

    So ISU has had one first round pick in history? Didn't realize the draft history was that bad.

    So is this your prediction or just present deflection?


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    The 5 signing aren't guaranteed anything are they? Just a spot in camp? Still great for Iowa State either way.
