Draft 2019

Pick No.20

Selected By: Denver Broncos

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 20 (20)

Pick Analysis: Thought Fant was a two-time All-Nebraska selection and school record-holder for receptions for Omaha South High School, he decided the University of Iowa would be his best fit. He wanted to be the next Hawkeye tight end to make it to the NFL, and also has interest in becoming an orthopedic surgeon after his playing days are done. Fant is surgical about his ability to beat defenses and showed glimpses of that talent in his true freshman 2016 season (9-70-7.8, one TD in 11 games as a reserve). Coaches got him involved in the offense more regularly in 2017. He responded by earning third-team All-Big Ten accolades after catching 30 passes for 494 yards (16.5 average) and 11 touchdowns, including one in his team's win over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl. Fant increased his production as a junior (39-519-13.3, seven TD) to garner first-team All-Big Ten notice and third-team All-American honors from the Associated Press. He started eight of 12 games played on the year, skipping the Hawkeyes' bowl game to prepare for the NFL Draft after declaring his intention to be an early entrant.
