IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa offensive tackle Riley Reiff has announced he has declared for the NFL draft.

The Gazette in Cedar Rapids reports the 23-year-old native of Parkston, S.D., confirmed his decision Tuesday.

The 6-foot 6-inch 300 pound Reiff was a first-team all-Big Ten pick this fall and second-team as a junior. He is projected by many to be a first-round pick.

He played four years for the Hawkeyes, starting for nearly three full-seasons. He was red-shirted his freshman year, keeping him eligible for four more seasons, and next season would have been his final year of eligibility.
