(University Park) -- Four more Nittany Lions have been taken in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Safety Troy Apke went to the Washington Redskins in the 4th round.

A few picks later the Denver Broncos selected wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton.

Safety Marcus Allen was drafted in the 5th round.  He'll be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

And the Arizona Cardinals selected cornerback Christian Campbell in the 6th round.

The quartet joins running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Mike Gersicki who were taken in the first two rounds of the draft.

The six selections are the most for Penn State since 2010.

A total of 350 Nittany Lions have been selected all-time in the NFL Draft, which ranks 7th among Division 1 institutions.
