Former Penn State All-American defensive tackle Devon Still will lead a group of four Nittany Lions to the 63rd Annual Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. on Jan. 28. Defensive end Jack Crawford, cornerback D'Anton Lynn and guard Johnnie Troutman will join Still in hoping to impress scouts at the game ahead of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Still, a projected first-round pick by most publications, had 55 tackles, including 17.0 for a loss, to go with 4.5 sacks for the Lions this past season. As a result, he was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and was a finalist for a number of national awards.
Crawford posted big numbers, too, racking up 40 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks coming off the edge. NFL Draft Scout ranks him No. 16 among defensive ends and expects him to be a seventh-round draft pick.
Lynn had one interception this season to go with 49 tackles. He was second on the team in tackles last season despite playing in the Lions' secondary. NFL Draft Scout ranks him the No. 20 defensive back in the draft and expects him to go in the sixth round.
Troutman started a majority of three seasons at guard for Penn State, dating back to 2009. NFL Draft Scout does not currently project he'll be selected in the draft, but does say his stock is on the rise.
