Butler heading to Seattle

Deon Butler was the second Penn State wide receiver taken in the third round of the NFL Draft Sunday, going with the 91st overall selection to the Seattle Seahawks.

The 5-foot-10, 182-pounder from Woodbridge, Va., led the Nittany Lions in receiving yardage in each of the last four seasons, and he finished his career as Penn State's all-time receptions leader (179), passing Bobby Engram, who left the Seahawks for Kansas City via free agency this offseason.

The Seahawks had acquired the pick in a trade with the New York Giants, who had earlier acquired it in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.
