Talk about surprises! The record-setting quarterback Darryll Clark went undrafted in 2010’s NFL Draft, but former teammates Andrew Quarless, Mickey Shuler, and Josh Hull were snagged before the seventh round came to a close.

Spring practices came to an end this afternoon after the Penn State football team took the field in front of a crowd of 55,000 for the yearly Blue and White game. It seems like the quarterback competition, which has dominated headlines, is far from being solved.
It was Kevin Newsome who took the field with team Blue and the first team offense, while Matt McGloin started for team White. McGloin also saw time with the first team offense, but it was freshman quarterback Paul Jones who sealed the deal for the Blue team after lobbing two passes to the corner of the end zone and into the hands of wide receiver Shawney Kersey.
That makes three! Last night, legendary linebacker and head coach of the San Fransisco 49ers selected Navorro Bowman 91st overall in the third round. Bowman registered 93 tackles during the 2009 season while battling a groin injury.
The linebacker should fit in well with the 49ers' defensive scheme, but off-the-field issues weigh on the former Nittany Lion-- a possible reason why he wasn't selected sooner. Bowman was suspended for two games in 2008 for fighting.
Bowman knows those problems are in the past. "I know what type of person I am. I've had so many teammates that love playing with me and love me being part of a team. I'm glad the 49ers see that I'm a good guy, and I bring a positive attitude," Bowman told Mercury News.
Stay updated. Daryll Clark could be next!
