NCAA Football: Pittsburgh at Penn State Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Christian Campbell came to Penn State as a late-offer player, and now leaves Happy Valley an NFL player after being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 6th round.

It didn’t take long for Campbell to get on the field at Penn State, playing in 10 games his freshman season, and being a steady contributor (44 games) at cornerback throughout his career.

At 6-foot-1, 195 pounds with 33.5-inch arms, Campbell brings tremendous size for a cornerback to the NFL. Although he’s susceptible to getting beat deep from time-to-time, Campbell has the length and strength to thrive at the next level as a press corner. He’s a great athlete too, displaying a 41-inch vertical at Penn State’s Pro Day.

Congratulations, Christian!
