DaeSean Hamilton found his first NFL home today as he was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 113th pick in 4th round of the NFL Draft.

Hamilton had an undeniable amount of success from the jump with Penn State, leading the team in receptions in his redshirt freshman season and eventually setting the program record for career receptions with 214.

But it wasn’t until after his college career was over that he really began to move up draft boards.

Hamilton was wildly success in the week leading up to East-West Shrine Game, earning himself an invite to the Senior Bowl the following week. He was just as successful at those practices and then followed it up by running in low 4.5s at Penn State’s Pro Day.

At 6-1, 203 pounds, Hamilton is expected to play largely as a big slot receiver in the NFL, though he played at the X, Y and Z spots in his years at Penn State. His fantastic technique, route running and versatility give the former Nittany Lion a great chance at a long and successful NFL career.

Congratulations, DaeSean!
