IOWA CITY — Iowa defensive end Chauncey Golston was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday night.
Golston earned first-team All-Big Ten honors, recording 45 total tackles, including 24 solo, 8.5 tackles for loss and 5 1/2 sacks, adding one interception and one forced fumble during the 2020 season.
He previously led the Big Ten in fumble recoveries during the 2019 season with three, which was No. 6 nationally.
Golston arrived on campus at Iowa at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and recorded a weight of 269 pounds at Iowa’s Pro Day in March. Head coach Kirk Ferentz commended his development and leadership as a team captain.
“We're a program really driven by players that do improve and Chauncey, it was year by year,” Ferentz said during Iowa Pro Day on March 22. “He just kept getting progressively better, and played very well for us two years ago, played his best football last year. Everybody just thinks the world of Chauncey.”
