All Picked by Cincinnati in Fourth Round of NFL Draft

DETROIT — University of Iowa tight end Erick All was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of Saturday’s NFL Draft. All was the 115th player picked overall. A native of Fairfield, Ohio, All returns to his home state.

All is the 13th tight end selected in the Kirk Ferentz era and fourth in the last five years. Sam LaPorta was picked in the second round by Detroit in 2022, while T.J. Hockensen and Noah Fant were each chosen in the first round of the 2019 draft.

All started seven games before suffering a season-ending injury in 2023. All had 21 catches leading the team in receiving yards (299) and touchdown receptions (3) last fall. He averaged 14.2 yards per catch and 42.7 yards per contest. All was an honorable mention all-conference selection by the league coaches.

"Erick All is ferocious in the run game, whether it is blocking in line or coming across the formation. He is quick out of the brick. He has home run speed and can run after the catch. He can break tackles and go 50 to 60 yards."

Cincinnati won nine games a year ago finishing fourth in the AFC North. The Bengals most recently drafted an Iowa player in 2012 when they picked defensive back Shaun Prater in the fifth round. All is the seventh Hawkeye selected by Cincinnati.

Iowa has had at least one player drafted in every NFL Draft since 1978. All is the 87th player coached by Kirk Ferentz at the University of Iowa to be selected in the NFL Draft.
