IOWA CITY, Iowa – A much-maligned position at Iowa, the program has produced some standout at this spot during the Ferentz Era. Who can forget Ricky Stanzi hitting Marvin McNutt with the game-winner at Michigan State in ’09?

We put a large group of pass catchers in front of the voters for this one. While the top two proved clear, a lot of opinions highlighted the collection after that.

Skinny: While his career here ended unceremoniously with off-field issues, there’s no denying that DJK ranks as one of the most exciting and productive players of the Ferentz Era. He stands second in career receptions (173) and receiving yards (2,616), and comes in fifth in receiving scores (17).

Second Team

Ed Hinkel

Skinny: He came to Iowa City as a safety before moving to the other side of the ball. Hinkel possessed great hands and keen route running ability. He caught 135 passes one season, ranks sixth all-time with 16 touchdown receptions, including a school-record four against Minnesota in ’05.
