Raiders Draft Stefen Wisniewski 48th Overall

2010 Penn State vs Michigan State-51 With the 16th pick in the 2nd round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders picked Penn State offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski. He became Penn State's 95th first team All-American at the conclusion of the 2010 season. Wiz was also the first Penn State Football student-athlete to be named an ESPN Academic All-American three times.

Stefen started 39 games over his four-year career at Penn State, including 38 of the last 39 games.

Wiz's uncle, Steve, was a dominant 8-time Pro-Bowl lineman for the Raiders from 1989-2001, and currently Oakland's offensive line coach.

Some mock draft projections had Wiz going in the later rounds, but some nailed it.
