Ferentz says Hawkeye Juniors filing for the NFL draft no big deal

Posted:

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (KWWL) -- Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz answered reports that three Hawkeye juniors have filed paperwork for the NFL draft.

Iowa safety Tyler Sash, Iowa receiver Marvin McNutt and Hawk cornerback Shaun Prater have all completed their application for the draft. The deadline to officially declare is January 15th.

Ferentz says it is not unusual for junior players to explore this opportunity and at Iowa he says they encourage it.  Ferentz says the NFL provides a great opportunity for juniors to research their draft status instead of relying on agents or people not as well informed.
