So another year and another NFL Draft has come and gone. Despite some speculation that this year could be the year, Iowa State continues to hold the dubious crown of 1st round futility. George Amundson in 1973 is still an obscure trivia answer. For most of those 46 years, Iowa State hasn’t come particularly close to producing a 1st round pick. Last week, David Montgomery broke a 5 year streak without a single player drafted.
How should the fan base feel about that? Happy to be sending players to the NFL, sure.
