Iowa State Defense:
#58 Eyioma Uwazurike-
6-6, 310, DT, Rs-Sr- Another big
athletic NT in odd fronts. Another freak athlete for a guy with his
monstrous size. He is a giant Nose Tackle dude, who is so much more. He
will line up outside at 5-Tech as well. They will shift him before the
snap from NT to 4-Tech. Great job occupying multiple blockers to free up
#3 JaQuan Bailey-
6-2, 261, DE, Rs-Sr- Big and
strong and he can force the OLT to Hold. Nice job eyeing the QB and
leaping up and batting it down. He is Iowa State’s all
time sack leader. Excellent speed to power shove into an inside move.
#35 Jake Hummel-
6-1, 228, Will, SR- When he
attacks forward he can find the RB.

#23 *Mike Rose-
6-4, 245, Sam, JR- Captain. Makes
tackles all over the field. Fast to the ball. Great in coverage. He leaf the Big-12 in Interceptions? Patent outside, and
can shoot inside when the RB cuts back. Leading tackler for Iowa State.
He had four INTs. Flashes inside fast when he sees the handoff. Consistently
finds the RB. Good blitzer.
Iowa State Offense:
#15 *Brock Purdy-
QB, Iowa ST, 6-1, 212, 58.- When he loses his feet,
he will under throw the pass outside. When the game is on the line in the
4th, he seems to make every right decision. Terrific throwing off
schedule. Nice play action instantly into a fast throw. He is so elusive
in the backfield in the 4th. Plays with much better instincts late in the
game. He is one of those guys who throws better in the 4th than the rest
of the game. He can be amazingly elusive in the pocket fighting for time.
Then he threw the int to end it.
2021 Player Ratings from 2019
He tends to be a be a little wobbly to start games Needs a hit
or two to get going. Stares down his first target too much. Shotgun QB
who doesn’t move his feet enough in the pocket. Footwork needs a lot of
work. He over relies on his arm and doesn’t use his body and legs in his
throws. Throws flat footed and leans back too pressure too much.

#88 *Charlie Kolar-
TE, Iowa State, Rs-Jr, 6-6, 245, 120.- They like
their TEs to lead block outside on swing passes a lot. Terrific receiving
TE. He has that knack for getting open, and catches everything thrown to
him. He has put on 12-pounds of muscle this past off season from 245 to

#89 Dylan Soehner-
6-7, 272 TE Rs-Sr- Good seal blocker. Hits and turns nicely.
Smart guy, who likes to point out things for his teammates. He has that knack for making the big
play on the big downs. Nice little inside shove when he breaks outside. Someone
is going to steal him on Day Three. Terrific after the catch. He is so
big he just keeps going after he catches the swing pass outside. Not

#75 Sean Foster-
6-8. 318, OLT, Rs-Sr- A big guy who is tough to get around. Purdy

#3 Johnny Johnson III- 6’, 199, WR,- He really is great tracking the ball. He can
make the impossible catch with one foot down on the sideline. Has that
knack for getting over the top and catching it in the endzone.
Super impressive and even impossible ball skills. Reminds me of Terry Glenn.
He’ll still drop the easy one sometimes, but he has vastly improved his

#77 George Moore-
6-6, 325, OLT, Gr-Tr- Hasn’t played a lot. Good athlete. Light on his feet. Looks a
little light. Pedal is a little clunky. He can collapse the line inside
on short yardage. Good grabber and fighter. Gets low and likes to push
the DE up and out of balanced. He can really grab shirt inside, and hold
on and not let the DE redirect. Great strong hands.
300, DT, Sr- he will flow outside with the OG, and give a lane for
the Rb to cut back into. Very light on his feet. Extends arms and always
plays at arm’s length. He is the buy OLs consistently double. He’ll play
DT and 5-tech as well as Nose.

#0 Deommodore Lenoir- 5-11, 195, CB,- QB don’t
like to throw to his side. He is a terrific shadow. He doesn’t give any
room to throw into. Fast and easy athlete. Glides downfield like he’s jogging
while running stride for stride. As smooth an athlete as you want to see.
Patient in zone outside. They have him one the flat a lot.
