Of Penn State's eight seniors to participate in February's NFL Combine in Indianapolis, four were selected in this weekend's Draft including defensive tackle Devon Still, offensive guard Johnnie Troutman and defensive end Jack Crawford were selected in Saturday afternoon's fifth round, while linebacker Nate Stupar went in the seventh to the Raiders.
Troutman, a 2012 Senior Bowl participant, was picked by the San Diego Chargers with the 14th pick of the fifth round (No. 149 overall), followed by Crawford, who is headed to Oakland to play for the Raiders as the No. 158 overall selection.
Troutman started every game in the 2011 season for the Nittany Lions and was named an honorable-mention All-Big Ten member and was named the most outstanding offensive lineman at the program's senior banquet.
Crawford finished his career at Penn State with a team-high 6.5 sacks and for his efforts, he was invited to the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine in Indianapolis. He finished his career as a Nittny Lion with 14 sacks and 89 tackles, 26.5 TFL and three fumble recoveries. He was a second team All-Big Ten selection.
Stupar, meanwhile, was taken with the 230th overall pick by Oakland in the seventh round. After testing well at the NFL Combine in February, Stupar's draft stock rose, eventually putting him in position to be Penn State's seventh linebacker selected in the NFL Draft since 2007.
