Penn State linebackers Gerald Hodges and Michael Mauti were selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL draft this afternoon.
Hodges, a 6-foot-1, 243-pounder, became the second Penn State player selected in this year's draft when he was taken in the fourth round. Defensive tackle Jordan Hill was taken by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round Friday night.
Hodges was fourth in the Big Ten with 109 tackles last season.
Mauti was taken by the Vikings in the seventh round.
Mauti had three ACL surgeries during his Penn State career. His last came after sustaining an injury in the second-to-last game of the season against Indiana.
