The pieces to the puzzle that is the Iowa offense are finally starting to form.
It may just seem like fan vision distorting the true reality, but seriously, Iowa appears to have something on its offense. Now you have a starting quarterback in Cade McNamara to pair with budding star back Kaleb Johnson. The tight ends Luke Lachey, Erick All, and Addison Ostrenga are worthy students at Tight End University. Now, if only the Hawkeyes could just figure out the wide receiver position.
The dreaded wideout position has been a massive problem for the Hawkeyes since Ihmir Smith-Marsette left for the NFL. There’s been instability, injuries, and instant regret as talented players transferred to greener pastures. The current offensive scheme is not the friendliest to wide receivers, and just recently we’ve seen what a talent like Charlie Jones could do in the right system. Iowa can find talent, now they just need to showcase them on the field properly.
Besides veteran slot receiver Nico Ragaini, not much is known about this current group. There is not a great amount of returning starting production, the Hawkeyes entering 2023 with pretty much a clean slate at the position. The starting receiver jobs are there for the taking, and sophomore transfer Seth Anderson might just be the one to take the opportunity.
The son of an NFL record holder, Seth Anderson has flown under the radar this offseason. As the Hawkeyes have hit the portal, other players have received more attention. However, Anderson should definitely not be overlooked. He produced in his freshman season as one of the best receivers in the Big South conference. With plenty of talent and eligibility left, could Seth Anderson be the breakout receiver the Hawkeyes have been desperately needing?
