Iowa | Senior

Round 7, Pick 30

When Stanley's home-state Wisconsin Badgers passed on him even though he excelled in multiple sports at Menomonie High School, signing with Iowa seemed a good fit. He spent his first year in Iowa City on the bench, getting limited time in seven games (5 of 9, 54.5 completion percentage, 62 yards). Stanley took over the starting job his sophomore year, completing 55.8 percent of his throws (196 of 351) for 2,437 yards and 26 scores (just six interceptions). He improved his accuracy as a 13-game starter again his junior season (325 of 396, 59.3 completion percentage, 2,852 yards, 26 touchdowns, 10 interceptions). Stanley, a three-time team captain, was a honorable mention All-Big Ten pick as a 13-game starter in 2019 after setting a career high with 2,941 passing yards (237 of 399, 59.4 completion percentage, 16 touchdowns, seven interceptions). -
