On Wednesday, CBS Sports had their latest mock draft, and they have one current and one former Penn State player going inside the top ten. The draft order was based on current Super Bowl odds.

NFL Draft Analyst Chris Trapasso has former Penn State and current Kentucky quarterback Will Levis going at pick number two to the Washington Commanders. He also has Penn State offensive tackle Olu Fashanu going at pick number six to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Trapasso sees Levis as a fit for the Commanders because current starting quarterback Carson Wentz has been at the center of Washington’s struggles by losing four consecutive games after their win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the opener. Washington can get out of Wentz’s contract without paying any more guaranteed money after this season.

The 6-foot-3, 232-pound Levis has the size, arm talent, and mobility that NFL teams look for, and if he is paired up with the right offensive mind, he can be a potential high-end starter in the NFL.

As for Fashanu, Trapasso sees him fitting in with the Steelers because they see him as a foundational piece for the offensive line that can protect rookie Kenny Pickett’s blindside, something that current left tackle Dan Moore has struggled to do this season. Moore has a PFF overall grade of 60.8.

The 6-foot-6, 321-pound Fashanu has been steadily moving up draft boards and has impressed scouts with his length, width, and sturdy base. The best part is he has excellent upside because if he decides to come out, he would only be 20 years old when he’s drafted and won’t turn 21 until December of 2023.
