Iowa CB Spievey appears headed to NFL

Iowa cornerback Amari Spievey is expected to forgo his senior season and declare for the NFL Draft, according to a source close to the Hawkeye program.

Spievey is expected to move to the Atlanta area to begin training in preparation for the Combine.  Underclassman have until January 15 to declare for the 2010 draft.

Most draft services rate the 6’0″, 195 lb. Connecticut native as a top-seven prospect in what is a relatively weak corner class.  Depending on his performance at the combine, I would expect Spievey to be selected in the third or fourth round.

Spievey finished an inconsistent 2009 season with 56 tackles and two interceptions while battling injuries and illness.  He burst onto the scene as a sophomore, finishing with 66 tackles and four interceptions.

His size and tackling ability will make him an attractive asset to teams looking for a nickelback in the middle rounds of the draft.
