TweetMarvin McNutt and Mike Daniels were two of the best senior players for the Hawkeyes in 2011 and they will showcase their talents for NFL scouts at the 2012 Senior Bowl. The Senior Bowl is the premier event for college football players to display their skills against some of the best in the game from all conferences. They both stood out this season for the Hawkeyes and were instrumental in helping them make it to a bowl game. Both of these player’s stock is on the rise after having quality seasons and a strong performance in this game will significantly increase their draft positioning. * – Senior Bowl photo credit: via IMG Academies Marvin McNutt is one the greatest receivers in the history of Iowa Hawkeye football and he set all kinds of school records. McNutt became Iowa’s all-time leading receiver with 2,861 career receiving yards and 28 career touchdown catches.  McNutt was a unanimous first team All-Big Ten choice and won the Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year in the Big Ten. Mike Daniels was the best player on the defensive line for the Hawkeyes and earned second team All-Big Ten honors by the coaches.  Daniels had 67 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and 9 sacks on the season.  He stood out in the Hawkeyes bowl game against Oklahoma and had one of his best games of the season with 5 tackles, 3 for loss and 2 sacks. Both of these players have had great careers at Iowa as they were major contributors to the Hawkeyes success. I see these both of these guys being drafted anywhere from the second-to-fourth round and should make an impact for their NFL teams next season. ********
