- Nittany Lions weigh in at the Combine:
Navorro Bowman, LB: 6-0, 242
Daryll Clark, QB: 6-2, 235
Josh Hull, LB: 6-3, 237
Sean Lee, LB: 6-2, 236
Jared Odrick, DT: 6-5, 304

- Quarless posted 23 reps on the bench press, tying him at No. 5 among tight ends. He ran a 4.67-second and 4.63 40-yard dash, and posted a 32-inch vertical leap. Tight ends and offensive linemen were the only players to workout Saturday.
- Clark said that he will be doing a full workout in Indianapolis except for the running drills. He strained his hamstring while training a little over a week ago. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound passer has been training in Orlando, fine-tuning his fundamentals--including his footwork. He believes that he's a smart quarterback who never forces the issue when passing, understands how to exploit a defense and has the confidence to play at the next level.
- Former PSU and current Norfolk State wide receiver Chris Bell says he'll be happy with any 40 time below 4.5 seconds. He believes that his height, physical ability off the line and down the field, his ability to get up for the ball and his durability are his strongest traits as a receiver. Bell measured in at 6-2, 211.
