Former Hawkeye lineman and NFL first-round selection Brandon Scherff won the honor in 2014. Iowa has had four players in its history earn the award, tying for third most by any school with Ohio State.

Welsh (6-foot-3, 295-pounds), a native of Springboro, Ohio, started all 12 games he played in during the 2016 season and was named second team All-America by USA Today. In addition, he was named second team All-Big Ten by Athlon Sports and third team All-Big Ten by conference coaches and media.

Daniels (6-foot-4, 295-pounds), a native of Warren, Ohio, started at center in all 11 games he played in during the 2016 season. Daniels was named to the first-team sophomore All-America by Campus Insiders and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection by Athlon Sports and third team All-Big Ten member by Big Ten Coaches and media. Daniels was also named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List on July 11.
