Robert Windsor is off the NFL. The big defensive tackle was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He is the fifth Nittany Lion to be selected this weekend.

The Wisconsin native appeared in 52 games over the past four years, totaling 121 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, 14 sacks, and three forced fumbles. He set career highs in both tackles for loss and sacks in his junior season in 2018, with 11 and 7.5, respectively. He earned All-Big Ten honors each of the last two seasons.
Windsor was a spectacular pass rusher for an interior defensive lineman, a byproduct of his better-than-average speed and relentless motor. He could slide over to a five-tech defensive end role or remain inside as a pass-rush specialist in the Colts' 4-3 scheme.
He joins Yetur Gross-Matos (Carolina, second round), KJ Hamler (Denver, second round), John Reid (Houston, fourth round), and Cam Brown (sixth round, New York Giants) as the Nittany Lions to be drafted during this weekend's virtual festivities.
Windsor will be the lone Nittany Lion on the Indianapolis roster.
