Bumped, I added some links to enhance your online experience. And yes, eight is a lot. They might not all be selected, but keep in mind Penn State hasn't sent more than six people in the draft since ten were taken in 1996. -Kevin
I read this on Rittenberg's blog at tWWL, it was taken from the official list of players invited to the combine [full list here]. I was kind of surprised that Ohrnberger wasn't invited. I mean the combine is not something I'm crazy about and we of course have our pro day, but it is still good to know that we have a shot to have near 10 players drafted and a few more signed, something we haven't had in awhile. I really enjoy following these guys in the NFL, as I'm sure you all do too.
PENN STATE (8)
- Wide receiver Deon Butler
- Tackle Gerald Cadogan
- Defensive end Maurice Evans
- Defensive end Aaron Maybin
- Wide receiver Jordan Norwood
- Cornerback Lydell Sargeant
- Center A.Q. Shipley
- Wide receiver Derrick Williams
So, Kelly, Ohrnberger, Davis, Lawlor, Gaines, Sales will not be, not a real shocker.
