Penn State’s 2014 roster does not feature a draft-eligible prospect who carries extremely high billing as an NFL prospect. There is no Allen Robinson…no DaQuan Jones…no LB coming from “Linebacker U” like recent draftees Mike Mauti, and Gerald Hodges, or Pro Bowlers like Sean Lee, Navorro Bowman, and Tamba Hali.

That being said, there will be numerous future NFLers the field for the 2014 Nittany Lions. As opposed to our standard “Get to Know the Prospect” piece, this GIF feature is about getting to know a team.

And with that, here are your potential draft picks coming out of Happy Valley.

The shift away from Teddy B. is in part due to O’Brien’s history and preference for quarterbacks with prototypical builds: his two most recent high porfile quarterbacks — Tom Brady and his hand-picked QB at Penn State, Christian Hackenberg — both sit in the 6’4”, 220-225 pound range. O’Brien himself has made comments about how he adores bigger QBs who can sit in the pocket and make all the throws.

In fact, while heading the Penn State program, O’Brien did not commonly recruit quarterbacks who were below the 6’3”, 200-lb. threshold. With all that in mind, members of the draft media have increasingly linked the Texans to UCF (read more…)
