George Kittle sees a bright NFL future for former Hawkeyes Fant and Hockenson

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The NFL Draft is three months away. There's a chance two tight ends from Iowa could be taken in the first round: Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson.

Former Hawkeye tight end George Kittle, who's now with the San Francisco 49ers, saw the potential in both players when they were freshmen.

"They worked very hard to be able to declare early," said Kittle. "I think they're both going to have very fantastic careers."
