Penn State Tackle Caedan Wallace Declares for NFL Draft, Will Play in Peach Bowl

One of Penn State’s starting tackles is going pro.

Offensive lineman Caedan Wallace announced Saturday afternoon he’s declared for the 2024 NFL Draft. A redshirt senior from Robbinsville, New Jersey, Wallace started every game at right tackle for the Penn State this season. 

He will play in the Peach Bowl before hanging up the cleats at State. The Preseason Reese’s Senior Bowl watch list member played five seasons in Happy Valley.

Wallace arrived at Penn State in 2019 and redshirted his first year. He started seven of the nine games he appeared in during the pandemic-effected 2020 season and returned to start all 13 games at right in 2021. 

The 6-foot-5 lineman started seven games at the position the following campaign and was named Offensive Player of the Game by the PSU coaching staff for his performance at Auburn Sept. 17, 2022. He helped stabilize an offensive line that helped Penn State become the first team in Rose Bowl history to record an 80-yard rushing and receiving touchdown in the same contest.

Penn State will likely have to replace both of its tackles in Wallace and All-American left tackle Olu Fashanu, who has yet to declare for the draft but is a consensus top-five pick in projections.
