Penn State's most recent batch of draft picks did some California dreamin' Saturday.
Jack Crawford (81) and Nathan Stupar will join the Oakland Raiders.
Defensive end Jack Crawford and linebacker Nathan Stupar joined former teammate Stefen Wisniewski with the Oakland Raiders, and offensive guard Johnnie Troutman went to the San Diego Chargers as the NFL Draft wrapped up its final four rounds.
Troutman, a starter in 32 career games at Penn State despite spending the early part of his career in Joe Paterno's doghouse for disciplinary issues, was the 14th pick of the fifth round and the 149th overall selection. He'll join a Chargers offense that was sixth in the league in yards per game last season.
Crawford went nine picks later. The 6-foot-5, 274-pound end had 89 tackles and 14 sacks during his Penn State career, with 40 of those tackles and 6 1/2 sacks coming in his final season. He missed the bulk of 2010 with a nagging foot injury after recording 31 tackles, 5 1/2 sacks and 14 1/2 tackles for loss as a sophomore in 2009.
The native of London, England moved to the United States at age 16 and played his high school football at St. Augustine Prep in New Jersey.
Stupar was the 23rd pick of the seventh round and the 230th overall selection. The younger brother of former Patriots and Bills tight end Jon Stupar (currently a free agent), he averaged 76 tackles and six tackles for loss over his final two seasons at Penn State.
Crawford and Stupar will join an Oakland defense that was 28th in the NFL last season.
Defensive tackle Devon Still, who went in Friday's second round to the Cincinnati Bengals with the 21st overall selection, was the only other Nittany Lion picked this weekend. Defensive backs D'Anton Lynn and Chaz Powell, wide receiver Derek Moye and defensive end Eric Latimore were among those who had hoped to be taken in the seven rounds of the draft. They'll look to sign rookie free-agent deals instead.
