2011 NFL Draft: Penn State's Evan Royster, Stefen Wisniewski To Attend Scouting Combine

Penn State running back Evan Royster and offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski will participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this month.

Wisniewski occasionally crops up as a potential first-rounder in NFL mock drafts, but less often than several other offensive linemen, such as Derek Sherrod, Nate Solder, Anthony Castonzo, Tyron Smith, Mike Pouncey and a couple others. If he's drafted in the first round, it'll probably be near the end, but the second round is probably more likely.

What will happen to Royster is a little less clear, despite his status as Penn State's all-time leading rusher. He's coming off two seasons that were somewhat disappointing compared to his breakout sophomore year. NFL Draft Scout projects he'll be a fifth-rounder. Mocking The Draft ranks him the 25th-best running back prospect in the draft. It wouldn't be a shock to see Royster go anywhere from the fourth round to not being drafted at all. A good combine could help him, however.
