The 2012 Iowa Hawkeyes and their head coach Kirk Ferentz were short on offensive playmakers.
This resulted in them being the second-worst scoring offense and passing offense (quarterback efficiency) in the conference and the third-worst rushing offense (yards per carry or YPC).
More notably, they had the second-fewest plays of 10-plus and 20-plus yards, the third-fewest plays of 30-plus yards and the fewest plays of 40 yards or more.
They would have been at the bottom of most of those categories if Illinois hadn't been even worse than Iowa.
In effect, the Hawkeyes' goal for 2013 is simply to score points, and the way to do that is to put the ball into playmakers' hands. The following slides rank who those playmakers are.
The order of the slideshow was based on what the respective players have done in the past, how they looked in the Des Moines open practice and the spring game and what they project to do if put in a position to succeed.
