STATE COLLEGE - With all of Penn State's players still on the board after round one, the race is now on to be the first Nittany Lion taken in this year's NFL Draft.
While the two-time Big Ten Receiver of the Year Allen Robinson would seem like the obvious answer, defensive lineman DaQuan Jones could slide in ahead of him.
At 6-3 and about 325 pounds, Jones has the size to be an impact player on the interior of the defense.
In a league that preaches versatility, the New York native could play either tackle in a 4-3 defense or nose guard in a 3-4.
“I mean honestly, I'm comfortable at both,” Jones says. “I really wouldn't care. As long as I go out there and get to play the football, I mean, I'll be fine with it.”
Both Jones and Robinson are projected to be taken in Thursdays second or third rounds.
The picks resume at 7 p.m. with Bill O’Brien's Houston Texans starting things off again.
