Iowa's Favorite Son TJ Hockenson Picked 8th Overall By The Lions!


TJ Hockenson is headed to the mighty Detroit Lions. He’s the latest 1st rounder for Kirk Ferentz, and first since Brandon Sceherff went to the Redskins in 2016.

The Hawkeyes are a tight end-producing MACHINE man. Tight ends and offensive linemen, that’s what Iowa does. Good ol’ corn boys getting paid. Dallas Clark, ever heard of him? Scott Chandler, ever heard of him? Tony Moeaki, ever heard of him? Brandon Myers, ever heard of him? George Kittle, ever heard of him? Yeah you have. And now you can add TJ Hockenson to that list of names that you have indeed heard of. Oh and Noah Fant, a tight end you have heard of, is gonna get drafted here pretty soon, too. Tight End U, baby.
