One of the most intriguing NFL prospects from Penn State is now officially an NFL draft pick. Jesse Luketa was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the seventh round on the third day of the NFL draft in Las Vegas. Luketa was the 256th overall pick, out of 262 total picks.

Luketa has played multiple defensive positions for Penn State, including linebacker and defensive end, and his versatility makes him one of the more interesting prospects in the draft this year.

Luketa was a third-team All-Big Ten player in 2021 after recording 61 tackles (34 solo) and picking off one pass in a season that saw Penn State move him to different positions based on needs. No matter where Luketa was used, he created an impact for the defense.
