Iosefa Headed to Tampa

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

With the 231st overall pick that Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected University of Hawaii running back Joey Iosefa.

After playing just one full season at Hawaii (due to injuries and suspensions), Iosefa is headed to Tampa where he'll reportedly be asked to play a number of roles including: running back, fullback, and tight end.

At 247lbs, the former Warrior will expected to provide power coming out of the backfield, something the Bucs have been lacking. Iosefa impressed scouts at the 2015 combine, benching more than any other running back, but clocked just a 5.02 40-yard dash time.

He is now the third player with Hawaii ties taken in the 2015 draft.
