by on February 18, 2012 6:00 AM

This is the fourth of a seven-part series looking at the seven former Penn State football players who will attend the NFL Scouting Combine, which runs Feb. 22-28 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Name: D’Anton Lynn

Hometown: Celina, Texas

Position: Cornerback

Age: 22

Height: 6-feet

Weight: 205 pounds

40 time: 4.53 seconds

Arm length: 29 inches

Hand size: 8.3 inches

2011 stats: 49 tackles (32 solo), one TFL, one interception, eight pass break-ups, nine pass deflections.

Career stats: 162 tackles (97 solo), seven TFL, four interceptions, 18 pass break-ups, 22 pass deflections, one fumble recovery.

Position rank: 32

Overall rank: 249’s Rob Rang’s draft projection: Seventh round

Rob Rang’s analysis: Lynn is the son of Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn. That does help, but at the same time you’re going to have some people with an even more critical eye. He’s going to be perceived as someone who should know better. The concern with him is, ‘Is he ever going to get any better or is he maxed out?’ I thought Lynn did outstanding at times in Mobile (at the Senior Bowl). Unfortunately, I didn’t see fluidity and loose hips you want in coverage. I saw him get beat on intermediate and deep routes. That concerns me. I see some physicality, some willingness to wrap up a tackle. He might be another safety conversion that teams might be willing to look at.
