Penn Staters Take on the NFL Combine

New, 65 comments

Saturday marks the first day of on-field workouts at the NFL Combine. How are the Penn Staters there doing? Find out here.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Five Penn State players are at the NFL combine this year, and while the interview portion can provide some insight into what type of players NFL GMs are getting, the on-field workouts can make a player's draft. All of the action is broadcast live on the NFL Network, or available online via NFL now.

Friday saw workouts for running backs, offensive linemen, and special teams; the weekend sees the Penn Staters hitting the field. Up first, on Saturday, are quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends. Sunday sees defensive linemen and linebackers, and Monday has defensive backs on the field.

Another story to watch this NFL Combine? Former PSUer Shawn Oakman. The lineman transferred to Baylor, blew up and is now entering the draft. But in the interviews, his time in Happy Valley and how he left dominated the questions the teams asked him.
