Greg Eisworth is ready for a shot in the NFL.

Eisworth, a four-year starter at safety for the Cyclones, declared for 2022 NFL Draft on XXX on social media. Eisworth was one of seven players who returned to Iowa State in 2021 using the COVID-19 blanket eligibility rule.

In his four years at Iowa State, Eisworth became the first player in program history to earn First Team All-Big 12 three times (2018, 2019, 2020). Eisworth was an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention in 2021.

Eisworth made his presence felt from the moment he took for the Cyclones in 2018, earning Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year after leading the Cyclones in tackles per game (7.3)

He finishes his career with 259 total tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions (had a career-high two for a season in 2021), 27 pass defended and two forced fumbles.

In his final game as a Cyclone, Eisworth had four tackles against Clemson in the Cheez-It Bowl on Dec. 29 and led a young safety room against the Tigers. No receiver on Clemson finished with over 56 yards for the game.

The 6-foot, 198-pound safety started 46 games at Iowa State and had six tackles and an interception in his final game at Jack Trice Stadium against TCU on Nov. 26.
