The future lays ahead.


Penn State is once again sending a pretty large contingent to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Like 2018, former Lions will look to secure their professional futures with big performances. Unlike last year, most of the group is looking to get on the radar of many teams, rather than being among the most elite combine performers.

All told, seven Penn Staters will do their best to catch attention and improve their stock. Likely draftees include CB Amani Oruwariye, RB Miles Sanders, OL Connor McGovern, DE Shareef Miller, and OL Ryan Bates. QB Trace McSorley and DT Kevin Givens have nothing but opportunity in front of them to prove to scouts they're worth a draft pick in April.

Here are some measurement tweets of interest so far:
