Iowa State football: Final grades for defense and special teams units

6 of 6

Oct 12, 2013; Lubbock, TX, USA; Iowa State Cyclones wide receiver Jarvis West (1) rushes against the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the second half at Jones AT

Kick returning: B-

Both DeVondrick Nealy and Albert Gary were the main kickoff return guys while Jarvis West was the main man on punt returns. Two kickoff returns came back on touchdown runs, and it took 19 years for one of those to happen for Iowa State. The good news? Nealy, who returned the second touchdown on the season, was just a sophomore last season while West will also be making a return.
