A quartet of Penn State players have accepted invitations to play in the Senior Bowl, it was announced Thursday.
All-American defensive tackle Devon Still, defensive end Jack Crawford, cornerback D'Anton Lynn, and guard Johnnie Troutman are set to play on the North squad in the game, which will take place Jan. 28 and be televised live on NFL Network.
In addition to earning first-team All-America honors, Still also was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.
“I just want to make sure that there’s no doubt in people’s minds, especially in scouts' minds and coaches' minds, that I am in fact the best defensive tackle,” Still said in a release issued by the Senior Bowl. “I’m just looking forward to going against some of the best offensive guards and offensive tackles and just prove that I am a number one defensive tackle.”
