There was a lot of change in Floyd Wedderburn’s life before he left Penn State and was a fifth round draft pick in the 1999 NFL Draft.
Wedderburn was born in Jamaica, moved to Canada, and ultimately lived near Philadelphia where he had a standout career for Upper Darby High School before winding up at Penn State.
With the Nittany Lions, Wedderburn seemed poised to make his mark on the defensive line before a knee injury precipitated a shift to the offensive line.
He was a part-time starter in 1997 before taking over at a tackle spot in 1998.
Wedderburn was a mid-round pick following the 1998 season and spent a couple years as a starter for the Seattle Seahawks.
Only 69 more days until Penn State is on the field.
