Penn State Morning Briefing: Robinson Called a Third-Round Pick, New Paterno Statue Planned and Other News


Today’s Penn State news covers a multitude of topics. Former wide receiver Allen Robinson, once projected to be a late first -round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, was called a likely third-round pick by ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. Robinson’s drop is likely linked to his poor showing of speed at the NFL Combine in February. In other Penn State draft news, DaQuan Jones is profiled. Elsewhere, a new statue honoring former coach Joe Paterno is planned for downtown State College, defensive line coach Sean Spencer wants his player to be in attack mode and Penn State’s 2013 season-finale victory at Wisconsin is revisited.
