Fifteen Cyclones On NFL Rosters
AMES, Iowa – A total of 15 former Iowa State football players are hoping to keep their dreams alive by participating in NFL Training Camps this preseason.
The list features veterans Tim Dobbins (Atlanta Falcons) and Ahtyba Rubin (Cleveland Browns), and includes a slew of Cyclone NFL hopefuls who played under Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads: Carter Bykowski (San Francisco 49ers), A.J. Klein (Carolina Panthers), Jake Knott (Philadelphia Eagles), Jake McDonough (Washington Redskins), Josh Lenz (Indianapolis Colts), Leonard Johnson (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Kelechi Osemele (Baltimore Ravens), David Sims (Indianapolis Colts), Reggie Stephens (Baltimore Ravens), Jeremy Reeves (New York Jets), Deon Broomfield (Buffalo Bills), Jeremiah George (New York Jets) and Jansen Watson (Oakland Raiders).
