The University of Iowa has a long tradition of producing players that go on to star in the NFL.
I'm not sure where Iowa ranks all time, but after 2011, Iowa was tied for the 11th-most players currently in the NFL.
That number will only go up following this year's draft when Marvin McNutt, Riley Reiff, Shaun Prater and potentially six other Hawkeyes suit up for the NFL.
The following represents the Hawks that have gone on to have the most NFL success.
The primary concern of this list is not what the players in question did in college, but how much success they achieved at the next level.
Furthermore, in order to get consideration, the player in question had to play at least eight seasons in the NFL.
Why eight? No reason, but there has to be a cutoff point.
Perhaps, in another five years, Chad Greenway, Pat Angerer and Shonn Greene will supplant three Hawkeyes that currently populate this list.
