Hawkeye Locator has decided to put a Black and Gold twist on the NFL Network’s new show, “The Top 100.” For those who haven’t seen or heard of the show, the premise of the program is to count down the 100 best players in the NFL today, as voted on by the players themselves.
For our countdown we’re changing things a tiny bit. We’ve set up a bracket-style poll consisting of 24 former Hawkeyes currently playing in the NFL. The ultimate goal is to determine which player is the best Hawkeye currently playing in the NFL.
Each week, fans will have the opportunity to vote on who should advance to the next round. VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN. Make your opinions heard.
