AMES (KWWL) -

When the lights go on at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for the 2013 NFL Draft, three Iowa State Cyclones will be hoping to hear their names called.

NFL.com lists Carter Bykowski, A.J. Klein and Jake Knott as Cyclones that could find themselves in an NFL training camp this summer.

Bykowski, a 6'6", 306-pound offensive lineman from Eden Prairie, Minn., played tight end in 2008 before making the switch to the offensive line. He played in 34 games on the offensive line. Bykowski received a grade of 59.4 from NFL.com, meaning if he's drafted, he would be taken somewhere between Rounds 4 and 7.

Klein, a 6'1", 250-pound linebacker from Kimberly, Wis., played in 51 games as a Cyclone. He recorded 361 total tackles, three sacks, five interceptions and recovered one fumble. Klein received a grade of 56.3 from NFL.com, meaning if he's drafted, he would be taken somewhere between Rounds 4 and 7.

Knott, a 6'2", 243-pound linebacker from Waukee, played 46 games, but was hampered by injury in 2012. During the course of his career, Knott made 347 total tackles, one-and-a-half sacks, seven interceptions and recovered two fumbles. Knott received a grade of 60.2 from NFL.com, meaning if he's drafted, he would be taken somewhere between Rounds 4 and 7.

The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft begins Thursday at 7 p.m. Central. Rounds 2 and 3 will be held Friday beginning at 5:30 p.m. The remaining rounds will be done on Saturday beginning at 11 a.m.
