Desmond King who is on the Bednarik Watch List--- had a spectacular junior season starting 14 games at cornerback and tying the Iowa single-season record and ranking second in the country with eight interceptions

King was a consensus All-American, a recipient of the Jim Thorpe award -- given to the nation's top cornerback -- and a recipient of the Jack Tatum award in 2015.

Beathard is on the Maxwell watch list after starting 14 games at quarterback last season, passing for 28-hundred 9 yards, 17 touchdowns, and five interceptions, while rushing for 237 yards and six touchdowns.

Last year Beathard earned second team all-big ten honors by league coaches.

Iowa state sophomore running back Mike Warren is also a Maxwell award candidate.

Warren led all NCAA freshmen in rushing in last year with 13-hundred and 39 yards, the third-best total by a rookie in Big 12 history
