Two Iowa Hawkeyes did not have to wait long to see if they were taken during the second day of the NFL draft. The New York Jets opened the third round by taking running back Shonn Greene, who rushed for more than 1,800 yards this past season in being named the Doak walker award winner.

With the very next pick the St. Louis Rams landed defensive back Bradley Fletcher, whose stock has been rising since the end of the season.

Iowa offensive lineman Seth Olsen was drafted in the fourth round by the Denver Broncos. Tight end Brandon Myers was taken by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth round.
