Iowan Jack Cochrane is making the most of his opportunity with the Chiefs

From being under-recruited out of high school to going undrafted in the 2022 NFL Draft, it would have been easy for Jack Cochran to give up on his football dreams.

But quitting was never in the 23-year-old linebacker’s DNA. His persistence paid off as he now plays for the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs.

Growing up in Mount Vernon, Cochrane’s love for sports came naturally as he participated in many different activities throughout most of his life.

He thrived on competition and filled himself in playing for and/or against future college and NFL stars such as offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs, offensive lineman Tyler Linderbaum, quarterback Cam Miller and linebacker Adam Bock.

Surrounded by so much talent within a 10-mile radius, Cochrane said it all comes from how people are raised in the area.
