Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said Tuesday that he believes one of his defensive backs could play on the offensive side of the ball, if the Hawkeyes needed him.

Ferentz said that Cooper DeJean could play a couple of offensive positions, though he is not likely to experiment with the idea right now. DeJean certainly looked like he could play wide receiver if the time ever came in Iowa’s win against Rutgers on Saturday.

The sophomore defensive back has recorded three interceptions on the season, including an over-the-shoulder grab during the game against Rutgers. He also returned that interception for a touchdown and showed off some nice footwork on his way to the endzone.

DeJean has a long career ahead of him as a defensive back, but if the time ever comes he could definitely line it up and run some routes.

DeJean will look to repeat last week’s success this week as Iowa takes on Michigan.
