About Pat Angerer

Angerer played linebacker for the Iowa Hawkeyes, making the starting lineup for the team in 2008, where he'd go on to lead the team in tackles with 107 stops, including 45 solo tackles, and 62 assists. In those years, he had five interceptions.

Before his college career was over, Angerer would earn Second-Team All-Big Ten honors in 2008, and was on a watchlist for the Butkus Award, Lombardi Award, and Bednarik Award.

It was no surprise that this star linebacker would make it to the show, and in 2010, Angerer was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. After a season, Angerer made the starting lineup for 16 regular season games, leading the Colts with 148 tackles.
