Quarless, Shuler and Hull round out Penn State draft class

Andrew Quarless (10) will be a Green Bay Packer.

While many Penn State fans were enjoying live Nittany Lion football at the Blue-White Game, the final rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft were wrapping up in New York City. It was a very good draft for Penn State, as three more Nittany Lions were taken.

Andrew Quarless was drafted in the fifth round, No. 154 overall, by the Green Bay Packers. Even with all his off-field and maturity problems over the years, he has definitely vindicated himself with a fantastic senior campaign at Penn State, and now as a Green Bay Packer.

Ready to face Quarless as an NFC North rival, Mickey Shuler was selected in round seven, No. 214 overall, by the Minnesota Vikings. This came as a slight surprise, as Shuler never claimed the No. 1 tight end spot at Penn State. But he has great upside, and will be sure to contribute at the next level.

The final Nittany Lion drafted this year was former walk-on Josh Hull. It's a great story of a typical Penn State football player. The St. Louis Rams took Hull with the next-to-last pick, No. 254 overall, in the seventh round. Hull will have a great shot to make the practice team, as he's a hard worker and smart kid.

Word late tonight is that Daryll Clark has been picked up as a free agent. We'll have more on that in a little while. So check back soon.

Congratulations to all the Nittany Lions selected in the 2010 NFL Draft. Good luck, and we know you'll make the Nittany Nation proud!
