Former Iowa wide receiver Marvin McNutt was selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, as the Philadelphia Eagles took him with the 194th overall pick. McNutt became the fifth Hawkeye to be picked in this year’s draft and is also the second Hawkeye taken by Philadelphia in consecutive years after the Eagles drafted former offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde last year.

McNutt is the first Iowa wideout to be drafted since Kahlil Hill was picked in the sixth round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons.

The St. Louis native had a monumental senior season, tying the single-season record of 82 receptions and setting new Iowa single-season marks with 1,315 yards receiving and 12 touchdown catches. McNutt also became the Hawkeyes’ all-time leader in career touchdown receptions (28) and receiving yards (2,861).

Last season, the Eagles went 8-8.
