NEW YORK – Iowa State did not have a banner football season last year, just 3-9. That was in no fault of linebacker Jeremiah George. George led the Big 12 in tackles.
Saturday the All-Big 12 linebacker was drafted by the New York Jets in the 5th round, pick number 154 overall.
George was the only Cyclone player drafted in the NFL Draft. Safety Deon Broomfield signed a free agent contract with the Buffalo Bills, and Tight End Ernst Brun gets a tryout invite with the Raiders.
