Penn State’s NFL Draft Busts in Big Ten Era

Penn State’s NFL Draft Busts in Big Ten Era

Hyped by on February 17, 2012 Website:

Earlier this week on Bleacher Report, I took a look at some of the best players to ever play in the NFL following their college career at Penn State (read it here). Today, I flip things around and take a look at a few of the biggest disappointments in the NFL to come out of Penn State.

To limit how far we went in to the archives for this, we limited our time frame to players in the Big Ten era at Penn State, which goes back to 1993. Feel free to add on your own suggestions in the comments below to add to the discussion.

Some of these players were a mere victim of powers beyond their control, while others just never enjoyed the kind of success they did in the college game.
