Noah Fant Fantasy Football Analysis

  • Height: 6’4″ | Weight: 249 pounds
  • 40-yard dash: 4.60 seconds
  • School: Iowa | Class: Junior
  • 2019 age: 22 | Draft position:No. 20 overall

Ever since Kirk Ferentz started at Iowa in 1999, the school has transformed itself into Tight End U. Fant has been groomed for professional success since his first day on campus.

Despite sharing the field with Hockenson, the supremely athletic Fant led the Hawkeyes with 11 and seven touchdowns receiving over the past two seasons.

An NFL-ready receiving tight end, Fant doesn’t have Hockenson’s strength as a blocker, and he dropped 11 of 80 catchable passes in his two final seasons (per Pro Football Focus).

But he has a real chance to be the more productive NFL player, especially early in his career, because unlike Hockenson, Fant will probably not be used heavily as a blocker.
