Former Hawkeyes picked in NFL Draft

Round 3 - 1st Pick (65th Overall)

New York Jets - RB - Shonn Greene

NFL.com Analysis: With Thomas Jones unhappy with his contract situation, the Jets add a potential replacement with the selection of Greene. As a downhill power runner with exceptional vision, Greene will serve as a banger between the tackles in the Jets' power-running offense.

Round 3 - 2nd Pick (66th Overall)
St Louis Rams - CB - Bradley Fletcher

NFL.com Analysis: The Rams add an athletic cornerback with their pick of Fletcher. The former Hawkeye has the size to slide inside to safety, but he should make his initial contribution as a nickel or dime defender in the Rams' sub-package.

Round 4 - 32nd Pick (132nd Overall)
Denver Broncos - OG - Seth Olsen
NFL.com Analysis: When you draft an Iowa lineman, you know he's technically sound and has been well-coached. Olsen has great strength and can step in and play guard right away. He's similar to Marshal Yanda, who was drafted by Baltimore a couple years ago. He's got strong hands.

Round 6 - 29th Pick (202nd Overall)
Oakland Raiders - TE - Brandon Myers
NFL.com Analysis: Myers is more of a blocking tight end. He serves as an extra lineman more than as a pass catcher. Iowa does a great job of developing run-blocking tight ends. Myers should help the Raiders' running game.

Undrafted Free Agents:
Mitch King - DT - The 2009 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year was projected to be drafted by some as high as the 3rd round. He was not drafted but agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans.

Matt Kroul - DT - Kroul has agreed to a Free Agent contract with the New York Jets.

Andy Brodell - WR - Brodell agreed to a Free Agent deal with the Green Bay Packers Sunday night.

Rob Bruggeman - C - Bruggeman was not selected in this year's Draft but signed with the Tampa Bay Bucaneers Sunday night.
