    Default Penn State releases 'Official' 2010 depth chart

    Penn State releases 'Official' 2010 depth chart

    The 2010 Penn State football media guides are out, and of course, we're all chomping at the bit to see where the chips fell after spring and summer practice. Here is the "official" depth chart: (I'll have some notes below each position)

    OFFENSE
    Quarterback Kevin Newsome (12) should have plenty of protection this season from the strong right side of the offensive line, anchored by right guard Stefen Wizniewski (61) and right tackle Lou Eliades (77).
    QUARTERBACK
    11 Matt McGloin (6-1, 206, Jr/3) or
    12 Kevin Newsome (6-2, 221, So/3)
    10 Paul Jones (6-3, 239, Fr/4)
    16 Shane McGregor (6-1, 200, Jr/3)

    Notes: Don't freak out about Matt McGloin and Kevin Newsome being listed as co-starters right now, cause it doesn't mean much... Then again, this entire depth chart could change by Sept. 3... true frosh quarterback Robert Bolden will be added later, as those frosh who entered in the summer are never included in the preseason depth chart.

    TAILBACK
    22 Evan Royster (6-1, 224, Sr/1) - TB
    21 Stephfon Green (5-10, 197, Sr/2) - TB
    26 Curtis Dukes (6-1, 242, So/4) - TB
    37 Joe Suhey (6-1, 221, Sr/2) - RB
    33 Andre Dupree (5-10, 234, So/4) - RB

    Notes: Looks like Dukes is the new power back until Brandon Beachum returns to full strength... there have been reports that Mike Zordich will stay at fullback, but isn't on the depth chart yet because of his situation in JoePa's dog house.

    TIGHT END
    80 Andrew Szczerba (6-6, 260, Jr/3)
    89 Garry Gilliam (6-6, 265, So/4)

    Notes: Kind of surprising Kevin Haplea didn't make the chart here, but Penn State usually only goes two-deep at tight end... Brennan Coakley has apparently elected not to use his final year of eligibility, which explains his absence from the chart.

    WIDE RECEIVER (Z)
    6 Derek Moye (6-5, 201, Sr/2)
    19 Justin Brown (6-3, 213, So/3)
    8 Brandon Moseby-Felder (6-2, 181, So/4)

    WIDE RECEIVER (X)
    83 Brett Brackett (6-6, 232, Gr/1)
    7 Curtis Drake (5-11, 173, So/3)

    WIDE RECEIVER (R)
    5 Graham Zug (6-2, 183, Sr/1)
    4 Shawney Kersey (6-1, 193, So/4)
    20 Devon Smith (5-7, 160, So/3)

    Notes: A bit surprising here that Brackett is getting the starting nod ahead of Drake in the slot... otherwise, nothing remarkable at wide receiver.

    Senior center Doug Klopacz (68) will finally get his chance to shine this fall, after an unfortunately injury-plagued career.
    LEFT TACKLE
    67 Quinn Barham (6-3, 293, Sr/2)
    78 Mike Farrell (6-6, 297, Jr/3)
    76 Nate Cadogan (6-5, 296, So/4)

    LEFT GUARD
    50 DeOn'tae Pannell (6-5, 316, Jr/2)
    74 Johnnie Troutman (6-4, 316, Sr/2)
    75 Eric Shrive (6-6, 292, So/4)

    CENTER
    68 Doug Klopacz (6-3, 284, Sr/1)
    54 Matt Stankiewitch (6-3, 295, Jr/3)
    60 Ty Howle (6-0, 290, So/4)

    RIGHT GUARD
    61 Stefen Wisniewski (6-3, 298, Sr/1)
    64 John Urschel (6-3, 274, So/4)
    73 Mark Arcidiacono (6-4, 272, So/4)

    RIGHT TACKLE
    77 Lou Eliades (6-4, 304, Sr/1)
    52 Chima Okoli (6-4, 291, Sr/2)
    58 Adam Gress (6-6, 292, So/4)

    Notes: The offensive line looks to have stayed the same since the spring, with Barham, Pannell/Troutman, Klopacz, Wiz, and Eliades on the first team... I wonder if Okoli found a new home at right tackle, as he was floating between the OL and DL... the rest of the two-deep line doesn't exactly shock me.

    DEFENSE

    LEFT DEFENSIVE END
    81 Jack Crawford (6-5, 271, Jr/2)
    44 Kevion Latham (6-2, 242, Sr/2)

    RIGHT DEFENSIVE END
    56 Eric Latimore (6-6, 267, Sr/2)
    90 Sean Stanley (6-1, 242, So/3)

    Notes: This looks like the best four-DE rotation in a long time. I won't say the individual talent is more impressive than, say a Tamba Hali or Aaron Maybin, but the quality of all four combined is making me giddy.

    3-TECHNIQUE DT
    71 Devon Still (6-5, 304, Sr/2)
    93 James Terry (6-3, 311, Jr/3)

    NOSE TACKLE
    85 Ollie Ogbu (6-1, 300, Sr/1)
    47 Jordan Hill (6-1, 311, So/3)

    Notes: From what I've heard and read, Brandon Ware is off the chart because of his academic issues, but if he can get his grades in order, he could see time this fall in the two-deep... the D-line overall seems short height-wise, though.

    Since spending the 2009 season at safety, Gerald Hodges (6) has shot up the depth chart at his new "Sam" outside linebacker position.
    INSIDE LINEBACKER
    48 Chris Colasanti (6-2, 239, Sr/1)
    33 Mike Yancich (6-2, 231, Jr/3)

    FRITZ OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
    34 Nate Stupar (6-1, 226, Sr/2)
    42 Michael Mauti (6-2, 229, Jr/3)
    54 Jamie Van Fleet (6-0, 227, Jr/3)

    SAM OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
    15 Bani Gbadyu (6-1, 237, Sr/1)
    6 Gerald Hodges (6-2, 228, So/3)

    Notes: The two-deep is interesting, with Yancich moving inside, and Hodges locking up the backup SAM spot... I guess Mauti is staying on the outside, kind of figured that would happen.

    FREE SAFETY
    1 Nick Sukay (6-1, 209, Sr/2)
    23 Stephen Obeng-Agyapong (5-10, 194, So/4)

    HERO
    28 Drew Astorino (5-10, 198, Sr/2)
    13 Andrew Dailey (6-2, 220, Sr/2)
    27 Jacob ***nano (6-0, 204, Jr/3)

    CORNERBACK
    12 Stephon Morris (5-8, 182, So/3)
    2 Chaz Powell (6-1, 193, Sr/2)
    14 Mike Wallace (5-9, 183, So/4)

    CORNERBACK
    8 D'Anton Lynn (6-1, 204, Jr/2)
    5 Derrick Thomas (6-0, 177, So/4)
    4 Evan Lewis (5-10, 194, So/4)

    Notes: If you watched the Blue-White Game, this two-deep secondary is totally expected.

    SPECIAL TEAMS

    KICKER
    36 Collin Wagner (5-9, 173, Sr/2)
    30 Anthony Fera (6-2, 212, So/4)
    28 David Soldner (6-1, 222, Jr/3)

    PUNTER
    30 Anthony Fera (6-2, 212, So/4)
    95 Russell Nye (6-0, 163, Jr/3)
    5 Graham Zug (6-2, 183, Sr/1)

    HOLDER
    83 Brett Brackett (6-6, 234, Gr/1)

    KICK SNAPPER
    61 Stefen Wisniewski (6-3, 298, Sr/1)
    57 Emery Etter (6-1, 230, So/4)
    60 Ty Howle (6-0, 290, So/4)

    KICKOFF RETURNERS
    2 Chaz Powell (6-1, 193, Sr/2)
    21 Stephfon Green (5-10, 197, Sr/2)

    PUNT RETURNERS
    19 Justin Brown (6-3, 213, So/3)
    5 Graham Zug (6-2, 183, Sr/1)

    Notes: Thankfully, Anthony Fera is back... I was seriously concerned about the punting and return games going into this fall, but I really, really like which players are getting the opportunities to start here. Penn State looks like it's finally gone with the absolute best talent available on special teams.

    That's about it for now. This depth chart will surely change between today and game week, so take everything you just read with a huge grain of salt.

    The left side of the OL scares the **** out of me.
