Penn State NFL Draft Recap

With the first pick, and the last pick, coming and going, another NFL Draft comes to a close. Unfortunately, this means yet another long summer without football.

There will be 12 former Nittany Lions that will be part of football teams over the summer as they joined pro teams this weekend. Four were drafted, and the other eight were signed as free agents after the draft was completed.

Here’s where the PSU players ended up:

Devon Still 

Still was drafted by the Cincinatti Bengals in the second round. Most were expecting him to be drafted earlier, but a questionable motor and injury history dropped him into the second round.

Johnnie Troutman

Troutman, an offensive guard, was drafted in the 5th round by the San Diego Chargers. He’s the first PSU guard to be drafted since Rich Ohrnberger in 2009.

Jack Crawford

Crawford was drafted in the 5th round by the Oakland Raiders. A defensive end, Crawford hopes to make an impact along with…

Nate Stupar

Stupar, an inside linebacker, was drafted in the 7th and final round by the Oakland Raiders. This makes Stupar the third former Lion to be drafted by Okaland in the past two years (Crawford, Stefen Wisniewski)

These players have agreed to an undrafted free-agent contract:

Quinn Barham: Detroit Lions

Eric Latimore: Minnesota Vikings

D’Anton Lynn: New York Jets

Derek Moye: Miami Dolphins

Chaz Powell: Oakland Raiders

Nick Sukay: Buffalo Bills

Andrew Szczerba: Dallas Cowboys

Deon’Tae Pannell: New Orleans Saints

Last night, there were rumors that Stephfon Green had also signed with the Jets, but Green and his agent quickly denied that anything was official.
