Before the 2022 Penn State football season, most people thought that Joey Porter Jr., a cornerback, would be the team's best NFL draught prospect
in 2023. And in the first quarter of Penn State's first game of the season at Purdue, Porter Jr.
almost made a big interception that could have led to a touchdown. Porter Jr.
almost caught the pass from Purdue quarterback Aidan O'Connell, but he couldn't quite do it. Instead, Purdue wide receiver TJ Sheffield got his
hands on the ball and made a big catch. Porter Jr. may have been caught thinking about the end zone before he could make the interception,
,but there was no time to think about it. Later on the same drive, Purdue took advantage of the second chance to score the first points,
but the defence kept the Boilermakers to just a field goal.
