Devon Still was invited to attend the NFL draft in New York and had hoped to hear his name called early, but instead he had to wait much longer than he expected.
The All-America defensive tackle was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals with the 21st pick of the second round Friday night, No. 53 overall.
Still had been considered a possible mid- to late first-round possibility coming off a stellar senior season. This is a deep draft for defensive tackles, however, and Still was the seventh player at his position selected.
Still had tears in his eyes as he walked onto the stage after being drafted.
"I'm just happy to have an opportunity to play in the NFL," he said on TV. "I'm just ready to go to work for the team that invested in me."
Still was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Lineman of the Year in 2011, plus a consensus first-team All-American. He also was a finalist for the Nagurski Trophy, Bednarik Award and Outland Trophy.
Still might be the only Penn State player drafted this year, although defensive end Jack Crawford and receiver Derek Moye are possibilities for the late rounds.
