It Is Not Going to Be Fun to Be Iowa DL Drew Ott Later

Being a defensive lineman is a tough job. At the start of every play you have a man mountain on the other side of the line trying to knock you in to next week, but somehow you are expected to hold your ground, figure out where the play is going, and get there.
