Penn State DT Austin Johnson Declares For NFL Draft

Austin Johnson dominating on Penn State's D-line

Austin Johnson has been far more than Penn State football's "other defensive tackle" so far this season.  The junior from Galloway, N.J., leads the Nittany Lions with 21 tackles, of which 5.5 have been for loss and 2.5 have been sacks.  He had six tackles, including two for loss and a sack, last week as PSU dominated Rutgers 28-3, and he admitted it was special performing well...
