Nittany Lions To The NFL

Here is a list of Penn State players drafted this year.

Aaron Maybin (DE), Round 1, 11th overall to the Bills.

Great pick by the Bills. Maybin is an outstanding pass-rusher and he's quick. Maybin had 12 sacks last year in Happy Valley.

Derrick Williams (WR), Round 3, 82nd overall to the Lions

Williams remains a Lion. Too bad for him. Detroit gets a quality kick returner and a 3rd or 4th receiver

Deon Butler (WR), Round 3, 91st overall to the Seahawks

Butler may be a work in progress but don't tell him that. His work ethic will have him in the starting line-up sooner than people think.

Rich Ohrnberger (OG), Round 4, 123rd overall to the Patriots.

New England gets a great run blocker. Look for Ohrnberger to challenge for a starting job in a few years.

A.Q. Shipley (C), Round 7, 226th overall to the Steelers

Shipley is a little small but that will make this pick fun to watch develop. A hometown boy playing in Pittsburgh is always a fan favorite.
