Two more Penn State Nittany Lions were off the board in the third round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Offensive lineman Caedan Wallace and defensive end Adisa Issac found new homes in the draft on Friday.

Wallace was selected with pick No. 68 in the third round by the New England Patriots, becoming the second Penn State player at the position to be drafted in 2024 only behind first-rounder Olu Fashanu.

Like Fashanu, Wallace is also headed to the AFC East as he joins the Patriots to protect a fellow 2024 draftee in quarterback Drake Maye.

Wallace becomes the 12th Nittany Lion all-time to be selected by the Patriots organization.

The offensive lineman was a 2023 All-Big Ten Honorable Mention and started all 13 games at right tackle during the season as part of his 40 career starts as part of the blue and white.

Later in the round, the Baltimore Ravens selected Issac with pick No. 93.

Issac will pair with two other recent Penn State draftees in fellow defensive lineman Odafe Oweh and punter Jordan Stout in Baltimore.

The Brooklyn native was selected by the media as a 2023 First-Team All-Big Ten member after recording 37 tackles and 7.5 sacks during the season.

Issac becomes the seventh Penn State player to ever be selected by the Ravens.

After the end of the third round, Penn State has had four players selected in the NFL Draft.
