It still feels so fresh and new. Penn State is in another preseason top-ten list. Pro Football Focus revealed the Nittany Lions as their No. 9 team to start the 2017 season. 

Trace McSorley and Saquon Barkley are obviously featured prominently in the PFF tweet. McSorley was highlighted by PFF for both his performance under pressure and his ability to make big plays with time in 2016.

And who doesn't love Barkley?

But, Brendan Mahon? His return from injury could propel the Penn State offensive line if he can play at the level PFF noticed last season. They graded Mahon as the second best player on the entire team.
