ALUMNI WATCH: Lynn Working Out for Scouts

Penn State defensive back D'Anton Lynn is going to work out again for NFL scouts next week at Celina High School in Texas.

D'Anton Lynn will have another opportunity to perform for NFL scouts next Tuesday at his alma mater, Celina High in Texas.

Lynn dealt with a torn calf muscle at the NFL Scouting Combine, which caused him to run a 4.77 in the 40-yard dash. It was the slowest time among the defensive backs, but was regarded as uncharacteristic for Lynn due to his injury.

The 6-foot, 206-pounder bench pressed 225 pounds 17 times and had a 31 1/2 inch vertical leap. BR> Lynn first got hurt in the Nittany Lions' bowl game and then played in the Senior Bowl despite the injury, which affected his ability to keep up with wide receivers.

Lynn sat out of the Penn State campus Pro Day workout.

Lynn was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten Conference selection at cornerback for the past three seasons.

He had 49 tackles last year with one interception and eight pass deflections.

As a junior, Lynn had three interceptions.

As a sophomore, Lynn had 35 tackles, 3 1/2 for losses and a half-sack.

Lynn's father is the Anthony Lynn, the New York Jets' running backs coach.

Anthony Lynn won two Super Bowl rings with the Denver Broncos after playing collegiately at Texas Tech where he was an All-Southwest Conference running back.
