2011 NFL Draft Results: Penn State's Workmanlike Center Stefen Wisniewski Selected By Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have selected Penn State center Stefen Wisniewski with the No. 48 overall pick in the second round. They clearly knew they wanted him, as they made the pick almost immediately after the Rams selected Lance Kendricks.

Wisniewski is the only Nittany Lion likely to be selected in the first few rounds. He should be a solid offensive lineman for the Raiders. He’s a great character guy with good bloodlines, and while he doesn’t possess huge upside, he can be a strong contributor. Here’s a scouting report.

The Indianapolis Colts took Ben Ijalana from Villanova at No. 49, which is irritating because he would have been a fantastic pick for the Steelers at the end of the second round – the Steelers badly need offensive line help. Sam Wilmoth will have more on that later, and who the Steelers might have their eyes on in the second line. The Colts appear to be rebuilding their offensive line with the selections of Ijalana and Anthony Castonzo in the past two days. In the meantime, the San Diego Chargers are on the clock.
