BY SCOTT MILLER and BRENDAN STILES | APRIL 20, 2010 7:30 AM

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Check out today's interviews with:
• Pat Angerer • Dace Richardson • A.J. Edds

Seven Iowa players could be drafted to the NFL this weekend, which could mean a new record for the program since the process changed to seven rounds in 1994.

BRYAN BULAGA (OT, 6-5, 314 lbs.)

Agent

Tom Condon

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 5.26 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 27 reps
Vertical jump: 27.5 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 6 overall
CBS Sports: No. 10 overall
National Football Post (NFP): No. 3 offensive tackle

Scout’s take

“Is he an elite athlete? No. But he’s good enough to play left tackle at the next level. I don’t think he’s ever going to make a Pro Bowl or anything like that, but he’ll be a solid left tackle that will do a great job, especially with teams in a zone-blocking scheme where he can get out to the second level and run block.” — Wes Bunting, National Football Post

Draft projection

First-round lock. Will likely be a top-10 pick.

AMARI SPIEVEY (CB, 5-11, 195 lbs.)

Agents
Nate Haber, Andy Simms

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 4.52 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 6 reps
Vertical jump: 35 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 8 cornerback
CBS Sports: No. 14 cornerback
National Football Post: No. 9 cornerback

Scout’s take

“He’s got really good ball skills. His tackling has improved a lot at Iowa from where he started. He’s the kind of guy that has a lot of upside. Some team could maybe reach on him a little bit based on his upside.” — Scott Porter, SidelineScouting.net.

Draft projection

2nd to 5th round

TONY MOEAKI (TE, 6-3, 245 lbs.)

Agent

Jack Bechta

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 4.62 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 20 reps
Vertical jump: 36.5 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 10 tight end prospect
CBS Sports: No. 9 tight end
National Football Post: No. 5 tight end

Scout’s take

“I love Moeaki. … He’ll win for you in the attack of the run game, he can set the edge, and he’s a better athlete than given credit for. He’s a polished route runner, runs better than people give him credit for, a better athlete than people give him credit for. … He’s starting in the league three, four years down the line.” — Wes Bunting, National Football Post

Draft projection

3rd to 5th round

A.J. EDDS (OLB, 6-4, 246 lbs.)

Agent

Jack Bechta

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 4.63 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 16 reps
Vertical jump: 35.5 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 24 outside linebacker
CBS Sports: No. 21 outside linebacker
National Football Post: No. 9 outside linebacker

Scout’s take

“His 40-time was much better than expected. He has done nothing but help himself. I think he’s the kind of guy that will go into camp, and then you won’t be able to get him out of there because he’ll be so impressive.” — Scott Porter, SidelineScouting.net

Draft projection

3rd to 5th round

KYLE CALLOWAY (OT, 6-6, 323 lbs.)

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 5.46 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 22 reps
Vertical jump: 22 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 10 offensive tackle
CBS Sports: No. 14 offensive tackle
National Football Post: No. 10 offensive tackle

Scout’s take

“He can set the edge, get movement as an in-line run blocker. … He’s a long-armed guy, a Velcro player that will stick to you, and then he’ll scrap for every inch. But he’s going to make his money as a run blocker, moving people off the football, setting the edge.” — Wes Bunting, National Football Post

Draft projection

4th to 7th round

PAT ANGERER (ILB, 6-0, 235 lbs.)

Agent

Jack Bechta

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 4.63 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 26 reps
Vertical jump: 39.5 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 4 inside linebacker
CBS Sports: No. 7 inside linebacker
National Football Post: No. 9 inside linebacker

Scout’s take

“The inside linebacker class this year is not real deep to start off. I’ve seen Pat as pretty much the fifth or sixth top inside linebacker. … When I think of Pat, I think of an extremely intense player, very good tackler. He had the six interceptions his junior year, he’s good in coverage.” — Scott Porter, SidelineScouting.net.

Draft projection

4th to 7th round

DACE RICHARDSON (OG, 6-5, 320 lbs.)

Agent

Mike Abadir

Workout results*

40-yard dash: 5.76 seconds
Bench press: 225 lbs., 20 reps
Vertical jump: 23.5 inches

Prospect rankings

Scouts Inc.: No. 12 offensive guard
CBS Sports: No. 30 offensive guard
National Football Post: Not ranked

Scout’s take

“With Dace, the thing that really killed him was that run at the Combine at 5.7. You can’t reach anyone at the second level doing that. … His lack of athleticism I think is going to scare a lot of teams. I don’t think he’s a draftable prospect, but I think he’ll be in a camp; I think he’ll have a chance to play for a roster spot.” — Wes Bunting, National Football Post.

Draft projection

6th round to undrafted free agent

*Workout results come from both the NFL Scouting Combine and Iowa’s pro day. The pro day results are according to the National Football Post.
