ONCE AGAIN, NFL free agency did not live up to what Stefen Wisniewski had in mind. Once again, he settled for a one-year deal with a team that needed a starting offensive lineman, hoping this might be the chance that could lead to long-term security, somewhere. Wisniewski, 27, is the leading contender to start at left guard for the Eagles after signing a contract that a source close to the situation said is worth slightly more than the $2.5 million he made on a similar deal last year in Jacksonville.

Ben Ijalana, a senior offensive tackle at Villanova, is the only Football Championship Subdivision player named to the 2010 Outland Trophy Watch list.

Penn State senior guard Stefen Wisniewski and Temple senior defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson are also among the 63 players announced to the list Monday. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Ijalana earned spots on both the Sports Network and Walter Camp all-American teams last season.

Nepotism is alive and well - very well, in fact - with the Oakland Raiders. But the fact Stefen Wisniewski's uncle, Steve Wisniewski, was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection for the Raiders and is now their assistant offensive line coach is not the overriding reason why Oakland selected the All-America guard for Penn State with their first pick of the 2011 draft, No. 48 overall, last night. Sentimentality is nice at family reunions, but productivity is always an NFL team's first consideration.

Stefen Wisniewski doesn't like to waste time, not that he has any time to waste. With all his success on the football field for Penn State, as well as in the classroom and participating in community service activities, Wisniewski has had to make sacrifices that contrast the normal student leisure-time routines of hanging out and playing video games. But if there's one thing about the 6-foot-3, 306-pound senior guard, who will play his final game at Beaver Stadium when the Nittany Lions take on No. 11 Michigan State on Saturday, it's being focused on the task.

NFL talent evaluators might have certain questions about Penn State offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski heading into Thursday's draft. Is the 6-3, 313-pounder primarily a guard, where he mostly played during his four seasons with the Nittany Lions? Or is he a center, where he started as a junior in 2009, earning third-team All-America honors? But two things general managers and player personnel directors should not be concerned with are Wisniewski's ability to mentally process any team's playbook, no matter how thick or complicated, and his character.

Stefen Wisniewski entered free agency expecting to find a long-term deal. When the market wasn't what he hoped, Wisniewski instead looked for a one-year deal that would give him the best opportunity to play. That's why he's now an Eagle. Wisniewski, 27, has been a starter in all five of his NFL seasons. He began as a left guard before playing center the last four years. The Eagles could have a starting spot available at left guard. "I've always been a starter," Wisniewski said.

INDIANAPOLIS - Stefen Wisniewski didn't have to look far for inspiration - or pressure - in his four years at Penn State. Reminders of his lineage, and expectations, were prominent parts of his college life. Often he saw the pictures of his father, Leo, a former Nittany Lions tri-captain who played four years in the NFL, and his uncle Steve, a two-time all-American at guard who made eight Pro Bowls. How's that for pressure? "Definitely a lot," Wisniewski said when he met with reporters at the NFL combine.

TAMPA - "Chip Hilton" is the main character in a series of sports books for adolescents written by Hall of Fame basketball coach Clair Bee. In 24 novels published from 1948 to 1965, the heroic Hilton not only led his high school team to championships in football, basketball and baseball, he also was an honor roll student, a role model for his teammates and the community, and the kind of boy parents wanted their sons to be like and their daughters to...

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Senior Day has enjoyed a long history at Penn State, and the Nittany Lions have been remarkably successful sending those players away from their last game at Beaver Stadium with a smile. The focus this season, however, is a little different. Sure, the Nittany Lions would like their seniors to go out with a win Saturday against Michigan State and at the same time spoil the Spartans' chance at a berth in the Rose Bowl. But most important for the seniors is what the history book will show.
