First Iowa Depth Chart for 2016 Season

Iowa released their first depth chart for the 2016 season earlier on Thursday.

Before Kirk Ferentz's scheduled press conference to recap the 2015 season and preview the 2016 year, Iowa released their first depth chart for the upcoming season. 

But as head coach Kirk Ferentz was quick to say, don't read it as gospel. It is only beginning and not written in stone.

"Depth charts in January are basically a starting point," Ferentz shared. "You can take it for whatever it's worth and there will be a lot of changes to that, most likely, and developments as we move along but it's a starting point."
