Thanks to some excellent work from tight ends Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson during Day 2 of the NFL Combine, Iowa sits atop the medal count leaderboard heading into Sunday.
According to the NFL Draft official Twitter account, the Hawkeyes lead the way in the medal count with 11 total medals through two days of the combine. Iowa also had more gold and silver medals than any other program, totaling five of each.
In total, Iowa has netted 11 medals, meaning players have finished first, second or third 11 times in events at the NFL Combine this week.

In general, the B1G is having a pretty good showing at the combine and in the medal count. Penn State is tied for third in the medal count with six total medals while Ohio State is tied for fifth with five total medals.
A huge reason why Iowa is at the top of the list is because Fant and Hockenson dominated the event on Saturday, posting numbers good enough for the top three spots in four of five events. Those totals added up quickly.
We’ll see how this progresses as the combine continues, but the B1G has had a great showing so far.
