IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Two of the best tight ends in Iowa history have left for the NFL. The Hawkeyes might finally have the wide receivers it needs to revamp its offense.
With T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant expected to be taken in the first round of next week's draft, Iowa (9-4 in 2018) has started adjusting its attack to be more inclusive of its receivers in spring practice. There should be plenty of eager hands after Hockenson and Fant combined to catch 88 passes for 1,279 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.
"I feel (like) there are more targets to the receivers," junior receiver Brandon Smith said. `Just knowing that you're getting more targets and possibly producing more, it gets you pretty excited."
