Iowa Hawkeyes in NFL camps

Scott DochtermanCorrespondent IMay 3, 2009

Former Iowa defensive tackle Mitch King picked Tennessee over about 20 other teams because he likes Nashville and the team’s coaching philosophy, according to The Tennessean.

King was surprisingly not drafted last weekend, but there was a flood of calls to him and his agent, Richard Rosa, after the draft.
