Penn State Football: 10 Predictions for the Nittany Lions Taken in NFL Draft

Penn State's Evan Royster could be a factor for the Washington Redskins.

Penn State had just two players drafted in the 2011 NFL Draft, with offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski being selected by the Oakland Raiders in the second round and running back Evan Royster being drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins.

With the future of the NFL still in question, it remains to be seen just how long it will be until either of these players gets to work on making an impact on their new team.

Will either of these players play in a Pro Bowl or Super Bowl?

Obviously at this stage it is impossible to tell what could happen. Injuries in the first preseason game could just as quickly turn either of these players into a disappointment, just as an injury to another player could make the role of Wisniewski or Royster that much more important in Oakland or Washington (or somewhere else).

Here now are 10 predictions for Wisniewski, Royster, or both as their NFL careers begin.
