The spring superlatives series marches on, as I take a look at the strongest position and weakest position for each Big Ten team entering spring practice.

Up next is Iowa, which returns 14 starters from a team that went 11-2 and won an Orange Bowl championship last season. The Hawkeyes are especially strong at defensive line, safety and the offensive skill spots, but they need to reload at offensive line and linebacker.

Strongest position: Defensive line

Weakest position: Offensive line
