IOWA CITY — Iowa defensive tackle Aaron Graves is ready for an expanded role this season. The former Southeast Valley High School standout appeared in 12 games as a true freshman last season and recorded 15 tackles, including six for a loss.

The defensive line has become a strength at Iowa and Graves says leadership from the veterans has been a big part of that.
