Player Overview

Entering this season, Iowa's James Vandenberg was considered the top Big Ten quarterback by some and given a draftable grade by many. But it's been a forgettable season for the senior as the Hawkeyes are in the midst of their first losing season since 2006.

Vandenberg has at least 25 pass attempts in all 11 games (365 attempts on the season), but only seven passing touchdowns, which is an average of one passing score for every 52.1 pass attempts. While his completion percentage is nearly the same as last year (58.1%), his production is way down.

Some of that can be attributed to the play-calling and a new offensive coordinator, but it's important to note that Vandenberg has struggled without Marvin McNutt on the roster, who was a sixth round pick by the Eagles last April.

He still has time to rebuild his draft stock during the pre-draft process and sneak into the later rounds, but right now, it's hard to see the Iowa quarterback being drafted in the 2013 NFL Draft.

04/17/2013 - 2013 Iowa Pro Day: James Vandenberg, QB (6-2 7/8, 224) - Vandenberg had a 34-inch vertical, a 9-foot-7 broad jump and a 4.33-second short shuttle. He didn't have a very good season this year, but he throws hard and is accurate. He might end up being a bit of a surprise on draft day. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
