Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson could potentially get chosen in the first round tonight. If he does, he says he has something special up his sleeve.

Before tonight's first round, Jackson said he plans on doing the "Kinnick Wave" if and when he walks across the stage in Dallas.

For those of you who don't know, the "Kinnick Wave" is a new tradition at Iowa that features players, coaches and fans waving at patients at the Iowa Children's Hospital that overlooks Kinnick Stadium.

Simply put, it is awesome.

There's only a few picks left in the first round. We're hoping Jackson is one of them.

If he is, he'll provide a memorable moment for Iowa fans and the children he'll be waving to.

Well-done, Josh.
