Iowa didn’t add any medals to its total on Day 3 of the NFL Combine, but the Hawkeyes are still in first place in the tally.
That’s right, thanks largely to tight ends Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson, Iowa was able to maintain its top spot in the medal count despite not earning a single one on Sunday. The Hawkeyes have totaled 11 medals over the three-day period. They also have more gold and silver medals than any other program, getting five of each.
One bronze medal is also on the board for the Hawkeyes.
#NFLCombine medals count through Day 3:

Three other B1G teams rank in the top five, showing just how many major athletes are in attendance. Michigan has snagged seven total medals while Penn State and Ohio State have each earned six.
The two non-B1G teams in the mix — Notre Dame and Kansas State — rank second and fourth, respectively. The Irish have totaled 10 medals while the Wildcats have achieved six, tied with the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions.
We’ll keep an eye on the medal count, and see if the Hawkeyes can sustain their lead.
