The Dallas Cowboys selected Iowa Hawkeye OLB Anthony Hitchens in the 4th round of the 2014 NFL Draft.  Hitchens, who is from Ohio, was named the team’s Defensive MVP in 2013.  He was also named 2nd Team All-Big Ten by the coaches in 2013.  Hitchens played alongside LBs James Morris and Christian Kirksey throughout his career at Iowa.  The trio was arguably the best linebacking corps in the Big Ten, if not the nation.

Hitchens probably played his best game of 2013 against Michigan at Kinnick Stadium.  In the Wolverines’ final drive, he forced a fumble on Michigan QB Devin Gardner as the Wolverines were driving into Hawkeye territory to preserve the victory for Iowa.  For more information on Hitchens, visit Hawkeyesports.com .
