STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State was expected to and had a busy third day of the NFL Draft as three defensive backs and four players in all were among those selected on the final day of the NFL Draft.
Penn State had six players drafted in 2010 and tied that mark this year. The program's all-time best was 10 selections in the 1996 NFL Draft. Here's my coverage of all of their Day 3 selections:
• Troy Apke, S, Washington Redskins (109th 0verall)
Penn State's start to the third day of the NFL Draft got going in a big way as Apke was selected in the fourth round by the Washington Redskins.
The former Mt. Lebanon standout was the first Nittany Lion off the board on Saturday, continuing a draft class that already had Saquon Barkley (No. 2 overall, New York Giants) and Mike Gesicki (42nd overall, Miami Dolphins) selected on Thursday and Friday.
