  06/22/22 - Will McDonald IVrSr/2023, Iowa State, 6-3, 245 (DS#1 DE) + More +

  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

  05/08/22 - Hunter DekkersrSo/2025, Iowa State, 6-3, 235 (DS#7 QB) + More +

  Poised for a 2022 standout season: Sophomore Hunter Dekkers is in line to take over for Brock Purdy, the winningest QB in school history who set 32 school records while starting the last 46 games. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Dekkers spent the last two seasons as Purdy's backup. Dekkers played in four games in 2021, completing 20 of 36 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 61 yards and two touchdowns on four carries. Dekkers is a former four-star recruit out of Hawarden, Iowa, where he broke Iowa high school career records with 10,628 yards and 126 touchdowns passing. - AP College Football

  Next year could be another standout year for the Cyclones in the draft. Let's take a look. Defensive end Wil McDonald IV, an All-American who led the Big 12 in sacks the past two seasons. He'll get plenty of attention from the NFL scouting community this fall. Receiver Xavier Hutchinson, a two-time All-Big 12 pick who, like McDonald, could have opted for the draft after last season. 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. Defensive back Anthony Johnson, switching from corner to safety, a four-year starter with 42 career starts. - Ames Tribune

  05/05/22 - Jirehl BrockrJr/2024, Iowa State, 5-11, 215 (DS#8 RB) + More +

  By now, you're wondering if running backs playing for Matt Campbell have a free-flowing pipeline to the NFL. Let's put it this way: Breece Hall going to the New York Jets in the second round makes it five since 2014 - two at Toledo, and three since becoming Iowa State's coach in 2016. David Fluellen and Kareem Hunt at Toledo. David Montgomery, Kene Nwangwu and Hall at Iowa State. All feature backs under Campbell. That's an impressive group.

It's something to sell when Campbell and his staff hit the recruiting trail, and so is this: Jirehl Brock has NFL ability too. "He'll show you," Hall told me after last season when asked about his running back heir. "Jirehl is good. He just needs the ball. He'll do great. He's been waiting for this opportunity." That's finally happening. The carries that went to Hall and others now will be Brock's. "Me being behind Breece and being able to watch what he was able to do helped me get ready for this point," Brock said this spring. It's Brock's time, and if getting to the NFL is a goal - he's certainly in the right place and definitely at the right time. With Campbell's draft history with running backs, the NFL would be well-served to keep eyes on the Cyclones. - Des Moines Register
