Former Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde was granted a spot on the Green Bay Packers’ final 53-man roster, the NFL team announced Sunday.

Hyde, a standout at Iowa, had a head-turning training camp with the Packers, in which he garnered a lot of attention from coaches and media.

Former wide receiver Marvin McNutt was placed on the practice squad for the Miami Dolphins, and former cornerback Shaun Prater was claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles from the Cincinnati Bengals.

Other former Hawkeyes didn’t make the final 53-man cuts for their teams. Super Bowl champion Tyler Sash, a former Iowa safety, was waived by the Giants. Tight end Tony Moeaki was cut from the Kansas City Chiefs because of a fractured shoulder and an injury-filled three years in Kansas City.

The NFL season will kicks off Thursday, when the Ravens travel to Denver for a prime-time matchup against the Broncos.
