2022 Stats:

  • 66 Receptions
  • 943 Yards
  • 7 Touchdowns

Yes, you read Andrei Iosivas' school correctly; he is, in fact, a Princeton Tiger. Don't let the school fool you, though, as Iosivas has the chance to be something special in the NFL. He's got solid size as a receiver and top-tier athleticism to go with it, making him an intriguing prospect.

What hurts Iosivas is his lack of production against players that are not as elite compared to who other prospects matched up against. If Iosivas had put up bigger numbers against weaker competition, that could help with the perception on him that he may not be as stellar as he could be.

There is no denying that Iosivas has physical traits that NFL execs would die for, but going to an Ivy League school and only producing solid numbers is hurting his draft stock.

Here's the thing: Vikings General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah is a Princeton grad himself. If anyone did their homework on Andrei Iosivas, it would certainly be Kwesi. Could the Princeton connection get Iosivas a shot at being a Viking?

Keenan McCardell has shown a knack for molding raw prospects into NFL studs, and Iosivas has the raw potential to be built into something stellar.
