The NFL draft kicked off for the Big Ten like most anticipated: With a thud. The good news: At least a Big Ten player was selected, helping the league avoid being shutout of the first round for the first time since 1953. Wisconsin center Travis Frederick was a surprise selection at No. 31 overall by the Dallas Cowboys.
Pretty neat deal here: A U.S. Senator honored Jack Hoffman with a resolution that was adopted by unanimous consent that notes pediatric brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among children.

The Dallas Cowboys selected Wisconsin center Travis Frederick No. 31 overall in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

There is a sense of urgency in Iowa City, as the Hawkeyes look to rebound from the school’s worst season since 2000. There has been plenty of work to do on both sides of the ball, but the offense has the most heavy lifting. Except for running back and line, Iowa has questions on offense. The defense? A search for playmakers up front is on. That has made this an interesting spring for the Hawkeyes, as Kirk Ferentz begins his 15th season on campus.
