Iowa continues to produce NFL tight ends like clockwork. Kirk Ferentz loves to go with veteran players at the tight end position, and while Herman could lose some playing time to top recruits like C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ray Hamilton, he could also do what Allen Reisner did and establish himself as the top tight end on this team. He obviously has the requisite size, but he’s not fast. He has solid hands but could improve in that area as well. Relatively inexperienced, but with only 9 catches last year averaged over 17 yards per catch. Not a quick tight end but a good, solid blocker and a guy who can make people pay in the red zone.
