Iowa Hawkeye senior LB Christian Kirksey and TE CJ Fiedorowicz will play in today’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL. Both have received some very good press coverage this week as NFL scouts and coaches look to this game to see how some of the top prospects go about their business as football players. In some of the articles I’ve read, Fiedorowicz has raised lots of eyebrows not just with his size, but his physicality during run blocking. Kirksey has also been noted as a kid coaches will love and, at worst, will be an immediate impact player on special teams.
So this is the time of year we start to set our sights on the new Hawkeye recruits and also watch to see where some of our favorite players land on NFL teams. Here are a few shots I’ve taken of both Hawkeyes featured in the Senior Bowl. GO HAWKS!
