Strengths Weaknesses

He displays average quickness, but plays with urgency and mobility, having no issues advancing to the second level. Farniok has aggressive, forceful hands, but his placement is streaky, causing him to overextend himself at the waist due to impatience with his overeager demeanor. Although he lacks the upper body strength to simply overpower defenders, he is a veteran and battle-tested with the tough competitive nature to anchor and fight through the whistle.

Farniok isn't a sure draft pick at this point, but a strong senior performance could change that.

--Dane Brugler (6/9/14)

Player Overview

Farniok chose Iowa State over offers from North Dakota, North Dakota State and South Dakota State, and took over the starting job as a redshird freshman. He started all 26 games through his first two seasons, and nine of 11 as a junior in 2013, having a 27-game starting streak ended by a knee injury in the season-opener vs. UNI.

After redshirting in 2010, Farniok earned the starting center job as a redshirted freshman and enters his senior year with 35 career starts under his belt. Farniok was named to the Rimington Watch List entering his senior season.
