3. TOP IOWA STATE PLAYERS

Best Iowa State Offensive Player

QB Brock Purdy, Soph. 
Well that was interesting. The 6-1, 202-pound sophomore went from being an also-ran backup to the star who saved the season. He doesn’t have a huge arm, but he completed 66% of his passes for 2,250 yards and 16 scores with seven picks. He’s not all that fast, but he was second on the team with 308 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

A good downfield passer with a good command of the attack, now he has to work on those interceptions – four game in the last three games, including two in the bowl loss to Washington State.

2. OT Julian Good-Jones, Sr.
3. OG Josh Knipfel, Sr.
4. TE Charlie Kolar, Soph.
5. OT Bryce Meeker, Sr.

Best Iowa State Defensive Player

DE JaQuan Bailey, Jr. 
The 6-2, 251-pound tweener has been one of the Big 12’s best pass rushers over the last few seasons, following up a seven-sack sophomore season with an eight sack, 14 tackle for loss, 46 stop All-Big 12 season. His production into the backfield slowed down over the second half of the regular season, but he was still strong against the run.

5. LB Marcel Spears, Sr.
