Offense Preview

Hawk Talk

This is the second part of a three-part story on Hawkeye football.
Last week I looked at the special teams, the quarterbacks and fullbacks.
This week I’ll look at the offensive line, tight ends, wide receivers and running backs.
The offensive line should be one of the strengths of the team, especially when you have Brandon Scherff back for his senior year.
Brandon checks in at 6-5, 320 pounds and is on everybody’s preseason All-American teams.
It was the best news of the of season last year when he said, “I’ll be back.”
