No. 14 Penn State is feeling good after a 33-14 home win over Central Michigan in Week 4 as is linebacker Curtis Jacobs, who rocked a bling indicating Penn State as “LB-U.”

While teams like Ohio State, Alabama, and LSU are battling for Receiver-U or DB-U, not many teams claim LB-U titles. Penn State has several current and past NFL players that put the team into heavy consideration.

The best current NFL linebacker from Penn State, and potentially one of the best defensive players in the NFL, is linebacker Micah Parsons. As a rookie for the Dallas Cowboys last season, Parsons accounted for 84 total tackles, 64 solo tackles, 13 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles to become the 2021 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Penn State also had four edge rushers go into the top-40 picks of the last three NFL Drafts.
