Iowa junior T Brandon Scherff will return for the 2014 season.
We are kind of surprised by the news, as Scherff could have drawn a first-round selection. He is an outstanding run blocker and bullies defenders in space, but needs to improve his balance and base in pass protection. Our own Josh Norris recently ranked Scherff among the top 20 prospects in the class. Mon, Dec 9, 2013 03:11:00 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper called Iowa junior T Brandon Scherff a nasty run blocker.

"He will lock up a defender and try to pancake the guy right until the whistle, and sometimes for that split-second of emphasis after," Kiper writes. Obviously Iowa has a strong history of producing tough offensive linemen, and Scherff could be the next in line. "I think he's easily in the first-round mix at this point, and is right there with Taylor Lewan as the best blocker in the Big Ten this season."

Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz believes junior T Brandon Scherff can follow Riley Reiff and Bryan Bulaga as first-round picks.

"It's realistic to think that could happen," Ferentz said. "If he ends up in the same seat as Riley [Reiff] or Bryan [Bulaga, two Iowa left tackles who left early and were first-round picks], that's a good seat to sit in. You can't really make a wrong decision there." After playing guard as a redshirt freshman, Scherff shifted to left tackle in the spring of 2012. He could not finish the season after breaking his right fibula and dislocating an ankle.

Iowa starting sophomore LT Brandon Scherff is out for the remainder of the season with a right leg injury.

The injury is believed to be a broken right fibula and a dislocated ankle, although no specifics were given. Scherff did undergo surgery Sunday morning. Junior Nolan MacMillan will likely take over the starting role on the left side.
