PSU Projected Preseason Depth Chart

Mark Rubin

With the … ahem … trials and tribulations of spring practice behind it, the Penn State football team now turns its attention to summer conditioning and eventually the preseason. What will be Nittany Lions' depth chart look like when camp opens in August?

That's what we're here to tell you. Since the coaching staff has limited ability to watch the players workout in the off-season, we don't expect a significant number of changes from the end of spring practice.

But we do anticipate some, and are guessing at least one newcomer -- JUCO transfer offensive tackle Nerraw McCormack -- will be asked to provide depth as a second-teamer almost immediately.

You will notice that we include safety Anthony Scirrotto and defensive tackle Chris Baker on this depth chart, even though they've been bound over for trial on felony charges of burglary and criminal trespass in regard to an apartment brawl in downtown State College April 1.

As of this writing, there was no telling how that might play out. Likewise, there is no telling if Penn State's Office of Judicial Affairs will punish that pair or anyone else allegedly involved in the ruckus.

Rather than attempt to guess how sure a serious situation will resolve itself, we're going to see how it plays out before predicting how it will impact the program and -- by extension -- the depth chart.

If you have something to say about this depth chart -- positive, negative or anything between -- let us know about it on the TAP message board.
