 Will McDonald IV, Iowa State, Player News


  Iowa State defensive end Will McDonald was wise not to declare for the 2022 NFL Draft, which was very top heavy with elite edge rushing prospects. McDonald is poised to become a household name after breaking Iowa State's single-season sack record twice over. The 6-foot-4, 245 pound pass rusher has a body built for the NFL and the athleticism and skills to match. Among edge defenders not named Will Anderson, he may have the best potential to be a top-10 pick when all is said and done. - IowaStateDaily.com

Interior offensive lineman Trevor Downing, another All-Big 12 pick who has starting experience at both guard and center. Interior versatility is a major plus.
